Self-improvement is one of the hallmarks of a happy and healthy life. Whatever happens, you always need to know that you have your own back and that you believe in yourself when nobody else does. Self-improvement is also a useful tool when you try to grow as a person. However, this is easier said than done.

So, when you finally decide that you want to improve yourself, how exactly do you go about doing that? Luckily, a handful of apps exist that can help you keep track of all the fantastic self-improvement goals you reach.


Turn one day into day one. It’s a helpful strategy that gets you working on your goals. It’s also a motto that motivates you to take a small step in the direction of your goals. The app itself works like a 21st-century journal. It keeps track of days, and you can do everything from scribble thoughts in it to add pictures from where you’ve been that day.

It’s an app that helps stimulate both sides of your brain. And you don’t need to be a professional writer. Instead, jot down your thoughts throughout the day. You may be surprised at the insights you come across through this action.


It happens to everyone. At specific points in life, you feel stuck. Everything is moving so fast around you, yet you feel like you’re moving in slow motion. If this has ever happened to you, don’t feel bad. It’s a familiar feeling, and there’s also an app that can help you get out of that rut.

The UnStuck app provides you with motivation and life-coaching opportunities. Digital advice on your life and the problems you face are at your fingertips, and you would do well to consider the app.

Imagine it’s Friday night. You get off work and the whole weekend is at your disposal! What are you going to do with all that time? If you need to socialize or want to get out and spend a night on the town, then Headout is the perfect app for you.

The app lists a bunch of activities that are going on around you. You can find things such as tours and other types of events that are going on in your area. More than a great app for finding stuff to do, it helps you socialize and opens you up to new experiences you would have otherwise missed out on.

Meal Snap

This app is the epitome of 21st-century technology. How annoying it when you keep track of your calories and what you eat? It’s a hassle to manually put in your calories during or after you eat a meal. Trying to find the right food in the proper category is time-consuming, and there must be a better way to input these calories.

Meal Snap solves this dilemma. The “snap” portion of the title comes from what you do with your meal. You open the app and snap a pic of it with your phone. Based on the photo alone, Meal Snap determines how many calories your meal is. How awesome is that!?


One of the primary goals of self-improvement is to become happier. A more joyful you means you have a better experience with life. But, being happy seems to just be out of reach for so many people. Since one of the widely held beliefs is that gratitude leads to happiness, the Happier app aims to help you experience and express gratitude.

You collect things throughout the day that makes you happy. And then you log it into the app. It’s like a personal happiness collection that grows each and every day!


Self-improvement doesn’t have to be a burden. It can be a fun and exciting adventure that changes your life for the better. Try one of these apps for yourself. And experience the self-improvement that follows!
