[prMac.com] Redmond, Washington - Resolutions 2013 1.0 helps users keep their New Year's Resolutions by forming new habits. This app is based on other 2Morrow Mobile behavior change apps, which have been featured in the "What's Hot" section of iTunes in 121 countries and downloaded over 250,000 times. Last year's app hit #2 in the iTunes App Store (US) for Productivity apps and this year's app offers new features and improvements.
Resolutions 2013 builds off research by people like B.J. Fogg from Stanford and Charles Duhigg, author of "The Power of Habit," who both explain that it is hard to break old habits, but you can override them with new habits. The Fogg Behavior Model discusses three elements needed for behavior change: Motivation, Ability, and a Trigger. He also promotes changing "Tiny Habits" that are relatively easy to change. Even small changes can be life changing. In "The Power of Habit," Duhigg talks about keystone habits like exercise that can lead to other positive changes. He also suggests identifying the cue that triggers a habit, and then creating a new, better behavior to take the place of the old habit.
40% of the choices we make each day are based on habit, not conscious thought. The Resolutions 2013 app helps people keep their New Year's Resolutions by creating better habits. Once a habit is formed (good or bad), that behavior or thought will keep working automatically...it goes on autopilot. That is why it is important to create habits that work toward health and happiness.
Research shows it takes about 66 days to form a new habit. Resolutions 2013 helps people be successful in changing habits by holding them accountable and offering reminders and rewards along the way so they can make 2013 their "best year ever."
"Willpower can help get you started toward your goal, but it takes habit to create lasting change. We created the Resolutions 2013 app because when willpower runs out, we fall back on our habits." - Brandon Masterson, CEO 2Morrow Mobile.
