Reading More Books – Goodreads.
Widely hailed as the social network for readers, Goodreads is a brilliant website with application counterparts that is great for inspiring you to read a little bit more. Both the app and the website do a yearly “reading challenge”, give you space to record the books you’ve read, want to read, are currently reading and are interested in. The community aspect is brilliant, too – and you can get plenty of recommendations from either Goodreads themselves, or other readers.
Losing Weight & Getting Fit – MyFitnessPal
If you’re trying to lose weight and get fit, then MyFitnessPal is the perfect thing to have with you in your pocket. It encourages you to record everything you’re eating and drinking, then working out the calorie content for you. It also has space for you to record your activity, goals and current progress. Again, the community aspect of this app is great, too, giving you extra encouragement wherever you need it.
Getting organised and saving time – Trello
We’ve spoken about Trello a little bit before, and really stand by it as a great organisation app. It gives you the option to create inspiration boards, to do lists, discussions and plenty more that makes it great for getting yourself organised and saving you a bit of time as a result of this. The fact you can use the app on your phone and always have it with you is a huge plus.
Save more money – Mint
One of the best ways to save money is to know exactly where your money is coming from, and what it’s going on throughout the month. That way you know where you can cut back your spending, and your savings will come from there. Rather than writing this all out by hand, take a look at Mint. Mint lets you keep a record of all your financial transactions, and can really give you a good insight into the health of your finances. Once you know where your money comes from, what it goes on and where you can cut back a bit, it’s a breeze to just put some money into a spare account and save it for a rainy day.
Better photos – Instagram, VSCO
The resolution specifically mentions taking better photos, but a little bit of editing can go a long way towards making your photos awesome. Instagram gives you somewhere to post your photos, but also has a bit of editing software built in to help you make your pictures look great. VSCO goes one step further, allowing you to edit many aspects of your pictures which makes them look brilliant. With a bit of luck, seeing your photos look a little better will inspire you to get a bit better at actually taking the photos – it’s a win, win.
