Research shows that being in a positive frame of mind is the most powerful predictor for success. Focusing on New Year’s resolutions that are personally inspiring and fun will make it easier to stay motivated. In fact, it may even lead you to accomplish other goals. For example, planning to travel to somewhere you’ve never been may actually motivate you to lose those five pounds!
Experts say that having the chance to work on something you enjoy a little bit each day can help keep you in a positive mindset and motivated to accomplish your goals over time. A smartphone can be a useful tool for that journey.
U.S. Cellular has identified a few smartphone apps that can help you achieve personal growth in 2013:
• Learn a New Language – For anyone who’s ever wished they’d put in an extra effort to learn a new language, the 50languages app can help you do so now. Users can explore 100 different lessons in learning any of the app’s 50 languages. The app combines audio and text to maximize its efficiency in teaching and the success of its users. The benefit of using an app like this is the ability to practice and complete lessons anywhere—on the bus, on your lunch break, on a walk, etc.
• Travel Somewhere New – This year, make it a goal to broaden your horizons by visiting a place you’ve never been (and maybe even practice the new language you’re learning!). Triposo’s World Travel Guide app provides information on more than 8,000 destinations. The app will make sure that your trip runs smoothly with its detailed city and country maps, background information on major sights, recommendations for great restaurants and spur of the moment travel and activity suggestions based on weather, location and time of day.
• Try New Foods – For people who don’t want to abandon the popular healthy eating resolution, why not replace cutting foods out of your diet with introducing yourself to new ones? ChefTap is an app that helps gather and organize recipes from any website. Whether you like a particular food blog, see a recipe on Pinterest, or find a recipe on any English-speaking website, ChefTap can import the recipes to your phone—after which you can create categories and sort your recipes however you wish. An app like ChefTap makes it easy for people to actually try the recipes they find online, rather than bookmarking and forgetting about them.
• Take Care of You – There are many apps designed to help people relax, de-stress, stay positive and find motivation. Two apps that U.S. Cellular recommends are the Yoga Nidra Meditation app and the Inspirational Quotes app. Through guided meditation, the Yoga Nidra Meditation app aims to reduce stress and anxiety, clear the mind, improve focus and build self-confidence, among others. In addition to relaxation, motivation and inspiration are also important in taking care of youself. Users of the Inspirational Quotes app receive daily inspiration from over 600 quotes through the app’s daily quote widget. The quotes can be shared via Facebook, SMS and e-mail, so you can also help others while you help yourself.
“At U.S. Cellular we believe your mobile phone helps simplify and organize your life to make things easier and help you achieve your goals,” adds Poellinger.“We also believe your relationship with your wireless provider should be the same. In addition to getting great holiday deals now, U.S. Cellular customers get a better experience all year long, including unique benefits like Overage Protection and a valuable rewards program that recognizes loyalty. You can use your rewards points for faster phone upgrades and free ringtones.”
With your smartphone or tablet, like the 4G LTE Samsung Galaxy S® III or 4G LTE Samsung Galaxy Tab™ 10.1, in hand, you’ve got the tools you need to conquer your New Year’s resolutions, no matter where you are, and achieve more in 2013.
