Do not have enough faith in your strength? Then you urgently need a quality motivation. Fortunately, there are applications designed specifically to raise the general tone and strengthen the positive attitude.
To learn something without the help of a specialist is almost impossible. The Coach.me application connects the trainer. And the coach can act as a specific person (in the application specialists are registered, and this is a paid service), and the whole community with free advice. The cool thing is that the application can motivate you: with all sorts of compliments, beautiful graphics and, most of all, advice from other users who can follow your progress in real time and write to you something like “Wow, guy, you’re already raised 198 pounds from the chest, you’re cool!”
After starting the application, you should accept the fact that the creators of this application know better what is good for you and what is bad for you.
All that is required of you, there is an explanation, and the application tries to convey it to you. First, make a simple choice. What do you want? For example, you want to become more energetic. The Fabulous application will decide what you should start with. It knows that it is useful for the body to replenish the water supply after sleeping, and it will suggest that you teach yourself to drink a glass of water every morning.
Slowly, methodically and very unobtrusively the application will lead you to the fact that you will drink a glass of water. It will remind you before going to bed about the need to prepare a glass. It will wake you up at the right time and see to it that you empty this glass. All this will continue until the moment when it becomes a habit. Once the application finds that you are ready, it will be time to move on to the next goal.
The application contains a huge knowledge base, which it will gladly share. It is worth installing it at least for the sake of recipes for a healthy breakfast, which can be cooked in 10 minutes. The application knows a lot of different exercises and techniques, and it will not drop all the information on you at once, it will gradually introduce it into your daily schedule, simultaneously explaining the importance of its compliance.
Have you found the time to take care of yourself? Fabulous will tell you how to spend 10-20 minutes of your time with benefit, offering a dream for singing birds or doing yoga. This is worth experimenting with.
The principle of the Forest application is simple: while you are working and not being distracted by useless applications, like social networks or instant messengers, a virtual tree is growing. The timer for the activity is adjusted manually: from 10 to 120 minutes. If during this period to launch a “harmful” application, the phone will play or vibrate, and a small plant will die. Particularly impressionable will be ashamed! In addition to pity for an innocent plant, you should be stopped by the attitude of friends who can also use this application and monitor your results.
Any application can be labeled “harmful”, so, for example, a phone call will not be considered a violation. We recommend immediately set up a “white” list, otherwise, Forest will swear on any use of the smartphone.
For the first five minutes of work, 4 coins are issued and on the coin for every additional five minutes, five more coins give a constant concentration for half an hour. For this money, you can buy new types of trees and plants.
The app is free for Android but there is an advertisement. If you want to get rid of it, you’ll have to pay. Together with this, you can synchronize your process with the cloud and other devices, compete with people around the world. Some of this money will benefit the world: if you pay for the premium features, you will get the opportunity to plant a real tree in Africa, having accumulated 2500 virtual coins.
Surprisingly, the application does work. Responsibility for a virtual tree somehow overcomes the desire to get a smartphone and dig in social networks. Most likely, because this desire is nothing more than a habit, getting rid of it is not so difficult.
HabitBull is a useful application for Android, which is created to bring up useful habits. The functional of the program does not stand out by any innovative approach to the pressing problem but only allows to optimize the effective methodology for the formation and acquisition of the desired modes of behavior.
As you know, the best way to develop habits is to repeatedly perform certain actions until the person gets used to them, and the irritating reaction will be replaced by at least a neutral one, or, ideally, will become part of the essence of the person. It is on this truism the idea of HabitBull is based.
After installation, the program will prompt you to create a habit. It can be anything. However, for convenience, the most desirable variants are already collected here, which are in several categories: nutrition, sport, studies, work, regime, and others. After selecting the desired category, you must specify the name of the habit, the period of formation, as well as the way of mastering the skill: doing it every day, several hours a day or several days a week. Thanks to this, the application will automatically remind the user of the need to perform the appropriate actions.
All added habits are displayed on the main screen. In the card of each goal, a calendar is displayed where it is necessary to mark the performance or non-performance of actions, as well as various statistics that will help track progress and motivate the user to move forward.
Thus, HabitBull will be very useful in a variety of endeavors. At the beginning of the formation of habits, the program will help not to forget about the plans, and the progress already made will make it continue.
Systematize the process of achieving goals, as well as simplify it with the help of psychological techniques allows the web service GoalsOnTrack. To work with goals, it uses a hierarchical approach. Denoting the final result in the program, it is possible to compile a detailed list of the cases necessary to achieve the desired result.
GoalsOnTrack allows you to describe the goal in detail and give it a visual image. Tasks in the list can be grouped and set due dates. GoalsOnTrack can synchronize your to-do lists with Google, Outlook, and iCal calendars. From the usual task manager, the service is different in that you can add photos and motivating notes to the goal. Having a clear visual image before your eyes, it is psychologically much easier to maintain high motivation. GoalsOnTrack also has a very functional habit manager that graphically shows the progress in performing daily tasks.
Of the additional features of the service is worth noting the built-in journal for notes or keeping a diary, as well as a tool for reporting on the progress of work on goals.
A simple and practical but at the same time, extreme approach to motivation is implemented in the Beeminder application. To make users work on their goals, it uses a very powerful incentive – money. Pay attention – real.
Lazy users of Beeminder are fined with real money! When creating an action plan, the program asks you to set a number of penalties that will be paid from the user’s account, if he is lazy or out of the schedule. For some types of tasks, for example, related to fitness or diets, Beeminder is even able to automatically control the progress, getting information from a fitness tracker or smart scales – and in the absence of results, to cause the owner quite a tangible financial loss. True, there is still the possibility of cheating – verification of tasks is in the form of a simple question in most cases. And the answer remains on the user’s conscience.
The developers of the application suggest using Beeminder to track goals related to health and physical activity, productivity, finance, and education. In the application, there is even a small set of typical tasks but it is rather demonstrative, prompting users to use the program.

Morning jogging has never been more useful than with the “Charity Miles” application. Each mile you overcome is not only a charge of vivacity and positive but also money coming to the charity organization that you chose. Who after this says that there is no truth in the feet.

The “tomato technique” of time management is known to the manager for work with personnel, business coaches and just interested in time management. She is loved by many because of her accessibility. It is based on the principle of 25 minutes of work without interruption. But after the expiration of this segment, you must interrupt for 5 minutes. The technique is good in that it teaches you to plan and select competently and to prioritize tasks, track time spent on work, better concentrate, analyze and optimize the work done by timing. Naturally, no one bothers to adapt the technology to their needs, if any task takes, say, 35 minutes of continuous operation.
The developers of the program, according to the method, offer to divide all working time into segments for half an hour, of which 25 minutes should be concentrated work, knowing that a 5-minute break awaits ahead
The work of ClearFocus: Pomodoro Timer is based, as you might guess, on “tomato technique”, and it helps to alternate working periods with interruptions. The app will report when a new time has come and offer a break. It has an extremely simple interface with a button and the ability to turn off the Internet and turn off the sounds / vibrations of your mobile device. Roughly speaking, your smartphone will perform the function of a kitchen timer – “tomato”, which is usually used for “tomato technique”, but more advanced. Here you can also adjust the periods of working time and breaks (long and short) and see the statistics, how many sessions you went through during the working day, and with what segments.

Instead, we see a very pleasant and well-designed interface, which is intended only for one – the compilation of a list of life goals.
For each accomplishment, you can choose a category, add a description, share in social networks. It is interesting that if you do not know how to proceed with its implementation, then you can ask for advice from the community. Already completed tasks should be illustrated with appropriate evidence, for example, a trip – with the appropriate pictures, getting an education – a scanner of the diploma and so on.
The number of life goals is strictly limited to eleven points. So you have to think carefully about what to include in this list. Maybe this is the main function of the service…

Each fragment of the task is performed as a quest, for its implementation you can set yourself an estimate and monitor the dynamics of the growth of estimates and the effectiveness of the application.

The main problem of all good beginnings lies in the fact that you cannot immediately see their fruition. The creators of the application suggest visualizing this process and associating the development of good habits and getting rid of bad ones with growing a tree – whether it grows from a small seed to a large bushy giant, depends only on your aging.
In order to become a guru of good habits, you need to select a target from the list (quit smoking, start going to the gym, and so on) or add your own, then plant the seed and begin to cultivate. In the evening of each day, you will be asked if you have successfully worked on yourself. If you have fulfilled the norm, the plant will become larger and you will get a motivating quote the next day.
An amazing application for emotion. The purpose is to create a kind of journey to the goal but to note only good moments in it. For example, you need to withstand a strict diet. For motivation, you take Momentum. It looks like a real chronicle of the journey: you fly in a balloon, the road is marked in the calendar, the pictures, comments are added. And so your diet becomes cheerful – you joke over food, take pictures of yourself with cheerful faces, enter checks … It turns out a funny tape, looking at which you do not feel deprived. Cool.
A devilishly simple application motivates you at the expense of demonstrating your perseverance and firmness in the performance of some monotonous work. For example, daily train or something to teach. You launch the Wonderful Day and tell the application what exactly you will do every day. In the mornings, Wonderful Day reminds you of the goal, marks the fact of accomplishment, painting the days with green circles. If you miss a task – circle red. As a result, the graph will look like a series of red and green circles. This is, of course, an amateur – a diary.
