Dr Mobile | Five Best Apps For Your ‘New Year, New Me’ Lifestyle



A new year signals a fresh start, a time for us to reflect on what we achieved (and didn’t achieve!) the previous year and what we’d like to change for the year ahead. Whether you want to get back on the dating horse, start regular meditation, delve into a new fitness routine or be more ethically-minded, 2019 could be the year that you change your life.

And luckily… there’s an app for that! Let’s take a look at the five best apps available at the moment to encourage that ‘new year, new me’ feeling:


This brilliant app tracks your habits and routines, allowing you to build a positive daily schedule. You set out your habits - e.g. ‘walk the dog’, ‘drink two litres of water’, ‘10 minutes of stretches’ or ‘read for 30 minutes’ - and track your progress in completing them. You can build streaks of ‘perfect days’ where everything gets done. Productive will also remind you to complete tasks, so there really is no excuse for 2019!


After a little more peace and clarity this year? Headspace makes home meditation simple with very short guided meditation tasks, building up to much longer and more complex meditation on a paid plan. This app will allow you to have a few precious minutes of silence in the morning to clear your mind and focus on the day ahead. It also has specific meditation for common problems such as getting to sleep, fear of flying and even meditation for children.


Have you heard of nomophobia? Well, even if you haven’t heard the term, it’s likely that you or someone you know suffers from it. Nomophobia refers to the fear of being away from our mobile phones, which may sound ridiculous, but studies show that the average adult checks their phone around 110 times a day. BreakFree is the solution; it’s an app which allows you to put time restrictions on those particularly addictive apps and limit your screen time. If you’re worried about how much time you spend scrolling and you want to cut it down for 2019, give BreakFree a go.


Hinge is the latest dating app on the scene and many people are attracted to its far more ‘real-life’ concept. It’s similar to Tinder in that it finds connections in your local area, for which you can swipe ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to, however, it offers a much smaller pool of matches. It will connect you with your mutual Facebook friends, and then friends of mutual friends, so somehow makes online dating feel that bit more natural. If you’re looking for love this new year, create a profile today.


This truly unique app is perfect for those looking to become more eco-friendly in 2019. It creates a community of neighbours and local shops who have surplus food they don’t want to throw away. Maybe you’re going on holiday and your fridge is full of food; with Olio, you can post what you’ve got and your local Olio community will put it to good use. Equally, you can pick up some tasty treats that otherwise would have gone to waste. It’s also a great way to meet new, like-minded friends in your neighbourhood!

Perhaps it’s been your new year’s resolution to finally get your faulty phone repaired? Or maybe you were dying to meet that dreamy match on Hinge but you dropped your phone on the way to the date? At Dr Mobile Phone Repairs in Nottingham, we can get you back on track to make sure your 2019 is just as you hoped, filled with positive habits, healthy routines and maybe even love.
