Five Top Apps To Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions In Check
The hustle and bustle of Christmas has died down, you’ve stuffed your face with leftovers and chocolate, and watched every Christmas special under the sun. You take a good hard look at yourself in the mirror, and suddenly decide that, a stroke after midnight on January 1st, you’ll transform yourself into a new version of yourself; a robot hybrid of good looks, charm and talent with the body of a professional athlete and the looks of a supermodel.
Sound familiar? Us too! But this year, you can call upon technology to help crack the code to actually fulfilling your New Year’s resolutions (maybe for the first time!). These are our top picks to keep you motivated and consistent for the year ahead…
MY FITNESS PAL
Decided 2020 is the year to become fighting fit? Then this is your secret weapon!

If the holiday festivities left your wallet barren, then here’s your saviour.

You may not leave 2020 with savings to rival Jeff Bezos, but you’ll definitely have more coins in your pocket to spend on what you enjoy!
Available for Android and iOS
Been a bit of a Scrooge this past year? This app will help you to realign your focus, and become more positive and grateful for everything you have – you can thank us later.
