We all want to be the best version of ourselves. But sometimes, our shortcomings get in the way and prevent us from becoming a success. The path to self-improvement is a thorny one, and embracing your imperfect side is the first step.
What do you need to do to change your life for the better today? Get rid of your old ways and adopt healthy habits. While it sounds simple, it’s not easy to do because, as we know, old habits die hard. You should arm yourself with a strong desire to change, some willpower and use a smidgen of technology.
In this post, we have pulled together a list of self-improvement apps that will help you to boost your brain work, achieve more during the day, and get healthier.
This set of apps are designed to improve memory and concentration.
BrainNation is an app that offers several levels of puzzles, solving which helps strengthen memory, process new information faster, learn to think on the spot, and concentrate for longer periods. Moreover, BrainNation gives you an idea of brain functions and parts of it that you could improve. You can rely on those insights to plan your training using the app or other means.

If you are struggling to stay productive, these apps will help you get things done.
Todoist is an excellent way to organize and manage your tasks, create to-do lists, set deadlines and reminders, and even collaborate with others. It also has a handful of useful features you can play with to make it even more user-friendly. For example, you can transfer websites and articles from the web to the app, see all files you have in Gmail and use them as tasks, never forget about a task using location-based reminders, and much more.
Do you need a way to kill off distractions? Forest helps you zero in on a task in an aesthetic way. The idea is to plant a seed when you start a task and set a timer. As long as you are focused on the task, your plant grows. To keep it alive, you should keep the app open because the tree dies if you exit. Try it and see if you can grow an entire forest and boost your productivity.
The following apps will help you adopt healthy eating and exercise habits.

MyFintessPal doesn’t offer a diet program, but you can use the information to enhance nutrition.
