It’s officially 2016 and we all know what that means: New Year’s resolutions. This year don’t fall into the trap of setting unattainable goals only to find yourself discouraged and unmotivated to make positive changes in your life for the coming year. We’ve compiled a list of apps that can help you set and achieve your goals, and most importantly, keep those New Year’s resolutions.
