15 Habit-Tracking Apps to Usher In Your Season of Productivity
We all want to build healthy habits. But if you've ever sat down to watch Netflix, blinked, and realized you just spent three hours rewatching"Selling Sunset" or "Never Have I Ever" then you know how hard it can be to stick to your goals. Most nights, I dream of big plans for the next day — wake up at 6 a.m., work out, drink tons of water, finally organize my closet — only to forget it all the following morning while simply trying to survive. If you too tend to lose track of time (and your goals), you may want to try one of these brilliantly organized apps.
While bullet journaling is great and printed habit trackers are so fun to fill out, habit-tracking apps are so effective! These aesthetically pleasing habit-tracking apps live on your phone, helpfully reminding you with notifications and motivational messages to meet your goals. From finding more time to read to limiting alcohol, you can set custom habits you want to track to reach your goals. Find 15 of the best habit-tracking apps in the slides ahead.
Done: A Simple Habit Tracker
Looking to quit smoking or start meditating? Done: A Simple Habit Tracker is an easy-to-use app that allows you to track three habits you either want to build or break. (You can track more than three habits with the premium version.) Once you've created goals for each of the habits you want to track, the app lists them in a colorful graph format, allowing you to very quickly see how productive you've been in achieving your goals. A calendar tracks your "streaks," and you can also add a helpful widget to your home screen that will help keep your healthy habits top of mind.
Social butterflies will get a kick out of Habit Tracker, the app that lets you build habits with friends. First, select the habits that you want to build.

It's perfect for those with a competitive streak or those who want to encourage their besties to live their best lives, too.
Manage your moods at the same time that you track habits with the Daylio Journal app. As often as you want, input your moods (ranging from "rad" to "awful"), then keep track of things you've done throughout the day, like watching movies, talking to family on the phone, and reading a book. This cool app will allow you to look back on how your moods dictate your health so you can practice self-care that's good for your mind, body, and spirit. It will show you what actions make you happy or sad, so you can adjust your behavior accordingly.
