Share this article

(StatePoint) The new year marks a fresh start and another opportunity to set goals for what is ahead. Developing a plan is simple, but holding yourself accountable and tracking progress can make it difficult to stick with your objectives for the entire year. Make 2024 different by utilizing apps to stay on track.

1. Stay Connected with Loved Ones. With busy schedules and loved ones living near and far, it can be hard to keep track of life’s special moments. Luckily, the American Greetings ecards app makes celebrations easy and affordable. With more than 1,000 highly personalized digital greetings including ecards, SmashUps personalized video greetings, Creatacard virtual greeting cards, and Pics & Wishes multimedia cards, you can quickly create, personalize and send greetings for every holiday, occasion, or just because. Plus, with the ability to schedule cards up to a year in advance and receive reminders for birthdays and anniversaries, the app will ensure your loved ones’ special days are never forgotten.

2. Hit Your Workout Goals. Achieving your workout goals for the new year is within reach—even if you are short on time for the gym. Whether you are aiming to start a more active lifestyle, build healthy habits, lose weight, get fit, tone up or just feel amazing, there is a workout routine out there for you. The FitCoach app creates a workout plan each week that includes cardio, strength, recovery and other exercises tailored to your goals, lifestyle and personal data.

3. Dive into A New Book Series. Exercising your mind is equally as important as exercising your body. Reading can boost your vocabulary, knowledge and creativity and even make you more empathetic. Plus, studies from the Mayo Clinic reveal that incorporating reading into your nighttime routine helps with sleep. Now, finding a new series or page-turner is easier than ever with the Goodreads app. Users can set annual reading goals, see what their friends are reading, write book reviews, and keep track of what they want to read. Struggling with motivation to finish that hefty novel? Online book clubs available in the app can connect you with other readers.

4. Track and Manage Your Finances. Take charge of your finances and keep an eye on your spending this year. Utilizing a personal finance app like the Spending Tracker – Budget App helps you create a budget calendar, keep track of transactions and manage your accounts all in one place. Gaining insight into spending habits can make saving goals much more manageable.

5. Cook a New Recipe. Stuck in a culinary rut? Kick off the new year with new recipes from the Kitchen Stories app. With more than 10,000 recipes, users of any skill level and diet preference can find a new recipe every day complete with instructional videos and tips from expert chefs. Once you find a favorite meal, add it to your personal cookbook so friends can see what you have been up to in the kitchen.

Grab your phone and start downloading! With these simple and helpful apps you can make 2024 the year you stick with your resolutions.
