Struggling to maintain your New Year's Resolution for a "healthier you"? Who can blame you when the monotony of dieting and exercising loses its sparkle after the first few weeks? There's got to be something out there making it easier to live a healthy lifestyle, right?

Right! There is! If you're the owner of a smartphone, there are numerous apps for healthy living that are waiting to be downloaded and put to use. Here's a few you might find helpful in achieving your New Year's Resolution in 2014...


This calorie-tracking app is designed to help you lose weight in a healthy fashion...and it's FREE. If accountability with a friend is important to you, you'll love the progress updates between you and your friends who use the app as well. The coolest function of the app, though, is the bar code scanner that allows you to keep easy track of your calories from store-bought foods!

Moody Me

Find yourself getting cranky over the little things? Manage your mood with the Moody Me app and monitor what makes you happy and sad!


For the runners out there (and those who are striving to be called such): iMapMyRun is for you! This app will keep track of your pace, distance, elevation, calories burned and nutrition. And when you're in the midst of a marathon (or quarter mile jog), a voice updates you on your progress, and you have the choice to listen to music at the same time! Very motivating if you ask us....

Superfood HD

Last, but certainly not least, is the Superfood HD app. Sometimes it can be a challenge to find healthy recipes that incorporate superfood ingredients (like avocados), but when you download this app you're privy to over 200 superfood recipes that are disease-fighting and that will carry you to the healthy lifestyle you desire!

Other healthy living apps to check out include Accupedo Pedometer, MediSafe Medication Reminder, Sleep Cycle, Lumosity and HeartWise.
