[prMac.com] Seattle, Washington - We all have things we want to change about ourselves, and we usually know what we need to do to make that change... so the challenge is not "what" we need to do, but "how" to get ourselves to do it. Here is a list of 3 top apps from 2Morrow that can help you deliver on your good intentions in 2015. In honor of those New Year goals, all three apps are on sale until Jan 1st, 2015.
Smartquit is the first app clinically proven to help smokers quit. The lite version is free and lets you create a customized quit plan and track your urges to smoke. The full version offers short daily exercises that teach you unique ways to deal with your urges. The approach is based on ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy) techniques that focus on learning how to accept your urges and be willing to live with them as you move toward your goal of being smoke free. The full version will set you back $50 unless you can get access through your employer or state. The certificate of completion may even earn you a discount on your insurance (check with your employer!). 2Morrow has collaborated with an internationally renowned cancer research institute to address nicotine addiction. Our mobile smoking cessation program is the only smartphone-based program proven effective in a randomized control trial. The SmartQuit approach was created by Dr. Jonathan Bricker and was shown to be effective in a randomized control trial done at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle.
#2. Healthy Habits:
Healthy Habits won the US Surgeon General Health App Challenge for its innovative approach to helping people create healthier habits. Users are encouraged to start with small, easy habits that will help them reach their goal. For example; eating on small plates or taking the stairs. The app comes with a habit library full of healthy habits or your can add your own. Once a new habit is formed, you stop tracking it and move to the next one. The concept is simple and is built off the work of Skinner, Fogg, Duhigg & DiCemente among others.
#3. My Pocket Coach:
My Pocket Coach is a mobile app that keeps you focused on the little habits that lead to success. Whether your goals are professional or personal, it is those little habits - the things you do when you are not thinking about what you do... that determine success. A coach that is always with, this mobile app is great for creating better mental and physical habits. Changing just a few key habits can improve any area of your life and My Pocket Coach helps users identify a goal then select 1-3 habits that will help them reach that goal. The Pro version allows coaches, trainers, therapists or even HR departments to customize the behaviors to fit their clients/employees. Based on the same platform as Healthy Habits, My Pocket Coach is perfect for all areas of your life professional, relationships, health and personal.
