Using Your iPhone for Personal and Professional Motivation
No matter where you are, what job you have, or what walk of life you come from, everyone needs a little motivation every once in a while. Whether it’s personal motivation to get you through the day, or professional motivation to help you get important things done in your daily life, the iPhone has got you covered (like always). Here are a few select apps that can help you with motivation, organization, and ultimately just help you get things done.
Streaks - The App to Help You Make or Break Habits
They say it takes 27 days of doing something every day before it becomes a habit. This means that whether you need to practice
your viola or break a cigarette habit, Streaks is a daily motivator iPhone app that will help you keep track of it. How it works is simple: It provides you with a calendar, you input the activity you need to do for a set number of days, and then it counts your streaks. If you miss a day, the streak starts over and the counter resets, so there’s no cheating as far as this iPhone motivational app goes!
For some people, motivation is as simple as getting organized and being able to map out everything they do in their head with clarity
and intuition. But what if you could bring that internal map out into the real world, without losing any of the intuitiveness of it? This is where MindNode comes in. Many personal organizer apps and tools stick to a pretty basic formula: Just put it all in a list, organize it by date and time, and then you’re good to go. The fact of the matter is that not everyone thinks in terms of lists, and I’d venture to say that more people don’t think in lists than do. So what does MindNode do? It’s an iPhone motivational app that allows you to create “maps” of your thoughts however you see fit. Draw lines connecting things you need to do in a particular order, or don’t– it’s all in your control. Plus it’s only $6. Small price to pay for the most intuitive and customizable organizer on the market!
My Personal Motivator - The Little Boost of Motivation You Need
If organization isn’t your problem and you just need motivation on a more personal level, then turn to ‘My Personal Motivator’. ‘My
Personal Motivator’ is the end-all for daily motivator iPhone apps. What this app does is incredibly simple, and yet can make a world of difference for people in their daily lives: It gives you quotes, based on your mood, to help lift your spirits and keep in a good mindset. Sounds simple, right? Well, you’d be surprised at how helpful it can be. Just select your current mood, and the app delivers a random quote based on that mood, right to the palm of your hand.
Simple, but very effective.
Jillian Michaels Fitness Motivation
The last of these iPhone motivational apps is for all you fitness gurus out there, and it’s about the best that money can buy (which is ironic, considering it’s free). Jillian Michaels Fitness Motivation is an iPhone fitness app that was created with the help of Biggest Loser star and fitness master Jillian Michaels, and it is perfect for anyone looking to lose a few pounds, stay in shape, or just keep those pounds off. The app does a variety of things, namely giving you tips and guidance to your workouts from Jillian Michaels herself, but it also allows you to track calories burned, check the intensity of your workout, chart your progress on graphs, and a slew of other things. The best part? The app is completely free.
