even better. Apps that could improve your life in the new year helping you accomplish goals, solve a few problems. The solver of all problems, Becky Worley is here with all the details. That's a heavy mantle, but I'll take it because new year's resolutions are hard to keep. Could an app help with that? Reporter: From fitness -- In the name of this app -- Reporter: To weight loss. You have got 12 points for that meal. Reporter: We know apps can help us track personal progress, but the trend has broadened significantly. Self-help apps? This is a thing? Oh yeah. This is a thing. So there is pretty much an app for any type of goal you have in the new year. Reporter: There are meditation apps. I think a lot of people might think it's just sitting there and being quiet, but it's not. It's a skill that you have to learn and get good at. Reporter: Apps help you get more consistent bedtimes. You may want to consider an app like sleep cycle. Reporter: As counterintuitive as it may seem in this age of tech overload, use it to work on your happiness. One app I love is called shine and it's kind of like a personal trainer for your mental health. Reporter: One feature, a chat robot that you can text about your problems. I feel tense. Okay. Then you can see here it has this heart emoji. We got you. It's so cute. Even though I know it's a robot, it gives me a warm fuzzy. Reporter: These apps have more reach because they can nudge us beyond our home screen. I got a notification telling me it's time to drink water on my apple watch. If you have something wearable, you can actually amplify your goals and these reminders through your wrist as well. Reporter: So even if your only goal for the new year is to stay hydrated -- 2019. And more water. Yeah. There's an app for that. Another place where tech can really help, sobriety apps from positive messages and connecting with others in the recovery community, they offer support with you 24/7 if you need it, and I just really learned a lot in that piece, especially about meditation and the fact that it's a skill you really need to learn it. So important. Amen.
