The Top 5 Best Routine Apps for Improving Your Health

“The majority of life is routine – boring and unclean — yet routine is what keeps a man going. You'll be standing on the corner after the procession is a mile down the street if you wait for inspiration.”

The Top 5 Best Routine Apps for Improving Your Health

Many people appear to be strongly unfavorable to routine. I understand their point of view, but I totally disagree. Because just because you aren't actively developing routines and habits in your life doesn't mean you don't have them.

It just indicates that you have a bad one.

I have a number of applications on my phone that help me keep track of and manage my daily routines and habits.  "What is this app?"

I'm not listing the applications in any particular sequence; I'm simply putting them down as I think of them:



I've tried a lot of measures to keep track of my daily activities, but this is the only one that's worked well enough for me to use on a regular basis. And I can honestly tell that it has improved my consistency and productivity!

It's basically a To-Do list on a huge scale. You may arrange your tasks by project, set deadlines, reminders, priorities, and sub-tasks, and so on. But it's the UI's simplicity that brings everything together. And the option to set repeating tasks is probably my favorite feature of this software. This has helped me stay motivated with a variety of activities and establish new habits.

Trying it out is the greatest way to understand it. It's completely free and works on virtually every platform.

2. Streaks


What you'll note is that most, if not most, of the applications on this list include a "streak" mechanism, which is usually a list of artificial online points, accomplishments, stickers, and other game components meant to attach your brain's reward system to an in-app result. But wow, does it get the job done! This is why education is such a popular issue right now, and why applications like Candy Crush are so addicting.

Streaks take that idea and apply it to almost everything you'd like to accomplish on a regular basis. Is it possible to practice Language every day? Do you want to give up smoking? Do you follow a healthy diet? Every two days, run a 5k? Streaks have a lot of power. It's also really well-designed, even down to the sounds it plays as you strike streaks and the special functions. That's what makes or breaks an app like this (they even got an Apple Design Award).

If your objectives are health-related, such as "Meditate for 30 minutes" or "Walk 2 kilometers" Streaks will automatically collect data from Apple Health and mark them as accomplished when you complete them. Neat!

3. Nike Run Club

Nike Run Club Overview

Running has many physical and psychological advantages (causes your brain to develop!). There's no reason not to start running if you haven't already. If you're already a runner, you can always improve your speed and distance.

Both of these things may be accomplished with Nike+RunClub. According to the app! It was a fantastic app at the time, and it's only become better since then.

What began as a simple way to keep track of your runs has evolved into a fantastic tool to get started jogging if you're a beginner, and to improve and become more regular if you're currently running.

With tools like Trainer, you can create a personalized running program depending on your needs and ability level. Nike+RunClub is the finest app for runners on any platform, with audio-guided runs by sports stars like Mo Farah and Kevin Hart.

What's the cherry on top? It's totally free! There are no in-app purchases.

4. Insight Timer

Insight Timer

A regular amount of meditation is also necessary for a healthy body and mind. It's also something that many of us wish we could do on a regular basis. But don't do it. Insight Timer can assist you with this.

First and importantly, meditation has nothing to do with religion. Everyone should practice meditation. The advantages of meditation are various. Whether you're looking for peace, happiness, reducing stress, relief from tension or depression, or perhaps nothing at all, you've come to the right place. If performed correctly, meditation might assist you in recognizing it.

If you're new to meditation, an app like HeadSpace or SmilingMind can help you get started with a few fantastic guided introduction sessions. Insight Timer is just the way to go and if you're currently meditating or have a general meaning!

As the title suggests, Insight Timer has a timer feature that you may configure to your heart's content with bells and whistles (literally). But it also has some excellent guided meditations from a variety of masters, perfect for almost any scenario!
It also has social elements, streaks, and is totally free, making it the ideal tool for anybody looking to transition from guided to unguided meditation.

5. Duolingo


Learning a language, like meditation, has many advantages for the brain and changes how you view the world. Not only that, but learning another language may open up a whole new world of people, art, music, and movies to you that you didn't have before.

Duolingo not only reduces the time and expense of learning a new language, but it also makes it a great experience by including a lot of excitement. It's one of the greatest examples of an app that's been well-gamified. All you have to do is use the app for 5–10 minutes each day.

I had trouble staying consistent with Duolingo in the beginning, but they've recently improved it even more with groups and a fresh UI for streaks, making it extremely interesting.

It may appear to be too simple, but if you are constant, it will work. They've even done their testing (research).

Duolingo is free to use, but you may pay to have the advertisements removed. Which doesn't worry me the most. They also offer a fantastic online app that you can use when you don't have access to your applications.
