Journy is your personal development planner. The app will help you get rid of your bad habits and get you out of your rut. It helps you find inspiration, keeps you motivated and helps you create and achieve new goals in various areas such as health, character development, mental health, finances, fitness and relationships.

Draw your life differently!
Journy is the most impressive cross-platform companion for tracking your daily habits and plans
Measure and track everything under the sun. Track your own schedule and track your own goals. Get informed any time you want to achieve something significant.
Eliminate bad habits from your life
Basically, start tracking bad habits like nail biting, smoking or excessive drinking. It's easier to break them down when you see examples. Journy keeps you accountable.
Add some positive habits
If you're up for the challenge, pick up a new good habit like reading a book or taking regular walks to keep yourself fresh.
2. Office yoga
Can't leave for a full yoga session? Then use this app to make useful poses in the office. The app contains 75 lessons, organized by both time of day and situation, so you'll find stretches you can do while on the phone, as well as invigorating exercises designed for your lunchtime walk. Available for iPhone and iPad.
I'm sure you've seen the ads for this app before, but I'll mention it just to be sure.
Lumosity is an amazing collection of brain games designed to test your mental acuity and give your gray matter a good workout. A more comprehensive web version is available, but the app offers a free trial that includes five sessions of three games and a pro version of the app for $9.99 per year. While the app version isn't as robust as the web version, it's still worth the 10 bucks.
Use it daily to improve your memory, increase your observation skills and generally become smarter.
4. Pick up
If you want to start small, this is the app for you. Lift lets you choose simple habits you'd like to implement—from flossing to going to bed before midnight—and then you can "check in" each time you complete the task.
The app tracks your progress and other users can give you kudos to keep you going to add to your sense of satisfaction. Available for iPhone right now, but the website promises that a web version is on the way - you can sign up for future updates to know when new versions are released.
This last one is currently web-only, but the creators say they're working on a mobile version, and it's so damn cool, I felt like this list wouldn't be complete without it. Instinct is a new (and fun) way to learn guitar. It uses the built-in microphone on your computer to listen to the notes you play and corrects you as you go. It can teach you songs and riffs, and it also has a tuner to help you find the perfect pitch for each string. It's free and offers a variety of lessons for both beginners and advanced players.
By the way, I regularly tweet about my adventure with change and love to encourage others to do the same, so follow me on Twitter if you'd like to expand your support network and we'll grow together.
So, here's my list...do you have a favorite app or resource that helps you be all you can be?
