Tips and Tools to Empower Your Life
We’re officially on month two of the new year, and if you’re like most resolution makers…you could be doing better (or you just gave up) on your promises to eat healthier, work out, be more productive, etc. Instead of abandoning your goals, why not use technology to make it easier to get motivated and stay on track? Habit List is an app that challenges you to keep your resolution alive by maintaining and breaking your “streak,” or the number of days in a row you’ve completed your task. The app also has reminders, badges when you’ve broken a personal record, and allows you to see the overall trends and progress you’ve made.
