Putting your best intentions into action means going beyond words and forming new habits, and that requires discipline and more than two months of reinforcement. A handful of apps could help you start doing the hard work of forming lasting habits.
Pause helps users slow down during the day with a simple distraction. When you open the app, a roaming dot appears on screen and you follow it with your eyes for a little while. By the time you exit the app, your mind will have had a stress-free break.
Coach.me aims to use the power of peer support and peer pressure to help users form habits. Users create a plan for forming a habit, then share it with the app’s community. The community can then offer feedback and support to help the user meet his or her goals.
Habit List is intended to track your new habits. It lets users name a new habit and specify which days the required tasks are to be completed; the app provides reminders that also are customizable by the user. It includes settings to let you skip reminders for when you are going on vacation or otherwise outside of your day-to-day routine.
