As we head into the New Year, lifelogging apps and services like Fitbit are topping the App Store. To reach your fitness, productivity and health goals in 2017, lifelogging apps on your phone can be of great assistance. Here is how you can start achieving your New Year goals with lifelogging apps.
Most people treat journaling as something they are told to do, or know that they should, but seldom do they ever take up the practice. Even if they do, they fall off track within a few weeks. Journaling is one such activity that teaches us better than any other the art of solitude; how to be present with our own conscious, bear witness to our experience, and fully inhabit our inner lives. Not only that, journaling also has such a positive impact on our mind that it has now also been integrated with many therapies in treating patients with mood disorders. It is getting easier by the day to journal, especially with various apps available for your phone.
To be the best of the storytellers, you’d want to have vivid descriptions of your escapades. People travel to have a sense of situations in life when they wish to have intense experiences. So naturally, you’d want to have a memento from that place. You could pick up fridge magnets or keychains to remind you of your travel. But it’s not the magnets or the keychains that’ll send you on a euphoric journey back in time into your travel, it’s not the material things that’ll make you laugh over a Saturday night beer; it’s the memories. The best souvenir you can pick up from any place while you’re travelling are the memories that you have of your journey. Recalling your travel adventures with a Journal app always pumps one up with an unexplainable pleasure.
Keeping a journal or a diary is perhaps the most fundamental lifelogging tool out there. It is simple, effective and in most cases is directly proportional to the user’s interest levels, since there is a more personalised recording of data.
