New Year’s Resolutions Made Easy With These Tech Must-Haves
Have you ever wondered how some people achieve their New Year’s resolutions? Maybe they adopted a healthy eating plan or launched the business of their dreams. In a recent survey, approximately 19 percent of those who made resolutions stuck with them through at least two years, and nine percent achieved success in turning their resolutions into permanent habits. While that statistic might seem low at first glance, it’s more than possible for you to meet your 2023 goals!
We’re here to tell you that with the right tech in your toolbelt, motivation to stick with the plan is far more likely. Our tech experts have narrowed down the top device in each major health category, so that achieving those goals for the new year can be as easy as switching the “on” button.
Best in Beauty: Inci Beauty App
We are in an era where everyone wants to know exactly what ingredients are being used in their favorite products, and according to a study, more than half the cosmetics sold in the United States and Canada likely contain high levels of a toxic industrial compound linked to serious health conditions. It’s time to make 2023 the cleanest and healthiest year yet by saying “no” to toxic substances in your makeup. With iOS app Inci Beauty, you can now check every single ingredient by using the seamless analyzer within the app. The app also educates users about toxic substances and informs which ingredients are better for them and their bodies. Now who’s owning those healthy New Year’s resolutions?
Best in Cooking: MasterClass
Let’s face it, the worst part about starting a healthy diet is learning how to cook at home – that is, if the skill doesn’t already come naturally. The MasterClass app isn’t new, but in just the past year, dozens of new classes have been added with a special focus on cooking and baking. From lessons in intentional eating, wine appreciation and vegetarian dishes, to deep fundamental courses in French pastry, bread baking, home cooking and more, taking control of what you eat has never been more thrilling.
Pair the app with a new iPad Air, and you have a hands-free, immersive experience in the kitchen where you can master any dish and inspire healthy eating every day. Now there’s no excuse for running to your local fast-food joint, because you have a way to cook amazing meals faster than ever in your own kitchen.
Best in Fitness: Apple Watch SE
When it comes to fitness results tracking and staying on top of workouts, the Apple Watch SE truly takes the cake. There’s a very specific reason we selected the SE model for those trying to stay ahead of their fitness goals this year – simply put, it was built to perform. Apple has long shown its prowess with fitness technology, and the great part about the SE is that it’s both affordable and high-powered. The watch features advanced health sensors and apps, so you can take an ECG, measure heart rate and blood oxygen, and even track temperature changes for advanced insights into your menstrual cycle. With Crash Detection, sleep stages statistics, and advanced workout metrics, it’s easier than ever to stay on top of those goals. After all, isn’t that what New Year’s resolutions are all about? Staying active, healthy, safe, and connected.
Best in Overall Wellness: Apple 14 Pro
The next best thing than having a great smartwatch to track your fitness is pairing it with the latest Apple smartphone. We know what you’re thinking: an iPhone for wellness? Just wait until you hear how it works. The Apple iPhone 14 Pro has all the bells and whistles for a healthier lifestyle. From viewing recipes and workout videos at up to four times the resolution of its predecessors, to connecting seamlessly with your Apple Watch SE to see all of your statistics and track things like workout reps, this is the way to stay on track. Plus, with superfast 5G and industry-leading durability features with Ceramic Shield and water resistance, you can take it with you on every hike, bike, run, walk, and bootcamp adventure around the world.
