You know what they say: a new year, a new you! But we all know that keeping to your New Year’s resolutions can be incredibly hard, no matter what your resolution.
Whether you’re trying to give something up or attempting to pick up some good habits, we could all use some support to keep us on track. We’ve collected some of the best apps available to help you to make a success out of your resolution this year.
Designed to be a nutritionist in your pocket, this app is fantastic for helping you find out exactly what is in your food and easily track your calorie intake. It also allows for tracking recipes, gives recommendations for healthy foods based on what you are already eating.

One of the most popular resolutions is also one of the hardest to achieve – to be a better person. We’ve discovered that Grid Diary is actually a fantastic way to help you keep to such a difficult resolution, as it prompts you every evening to write a little bit about what you were grateful for that day.
It also asks tough questions such as: “Did I care for my friends today?” and “what are three good things I did today?” which makes you reflect on your priorities to help you to improve both yourself and your relationships. We definitely recommend this app to anyone looking to self-improve this year.
