It’s been a busy holiday season over here. Coro was on Univision’s Despierta America this morning to chat about useful apps to ring in the new year. Here are a few to get you started off on the right foot.
Noom is an app that helps you live a better life and is an innovative digital health platform. It uses a combination of human coaches, clinical psychology and the latest tech to keep people engaged and find what works best for each person. It goes beyond dieting and focuses on behavioral changes that make it easier for people to adopt these changes in their lives and although it requires commitment, like everything in life you want to make succeed, the results speak for themselves. Thousands of people have improved their health using this app and it’s only getting better with time.
Mint is an oldie but a goodie and if you are looking to improve your finances, you should really give it a shot. What makes Mint different? For starters, it acts as a control dashboard that aggregates all your information in one place. You can connect all your accounts, banks, credit cards, loans, investments, etc. and you can see them all in one place. Once the app has access to everything, it’s when the smart part begins. Not only will you see where your money is going, the app will find savings in places you didn’t even know to look. You can create budgets and financial goals that will help keep you on track.
Udemy is the site/app you want to use if your goal is to improve yourself in the New Year, which you can do in your free time from home or wherever you are. The best news is that you can do it cheaply and even get certified. You can learn about design, software and web development, marketing, business, photography and even music with over 180,000 video courses at very accessible prices.
Parental Controls and Monitoring
Let’s face it, kids are way smarter than us when it comes to technology. They are digital natives and can easily figure out how to subvert the very basic parental controls that come with devices and apps. Enter Bark, an app that monitors several social networks and apps that will alert parents if kids are at risk online. Instead of snooping in on everything that they do, Bark uses artificial intelligence to detect potential problems and alert parents to intervene.
Mindfulness and Meditation
Headspace is an amazing app that will help you live a mindful life with an extensive library of over 500 meditations. You can find a variety of meditations that help you with stress relief, becoming more resilient or compassionate. When it comes time to get a healthy rest, there are several wind-down meditations and exercises that will assist you in getting ready and getting the better ZZZs that I’m sure we all need these days.
There are so many interesting and useful apps you can use in 2022 but this list will surely get you started.
