Mo­ti­va­tion is what starts you on the road to mak­ing pos­i­tive changes in your life, but habit is what keeps you go­ing. Opin­ions vary on how long it takes for habits to form, but once they do your changes are fixed. Oc­ca­sion­ally, how­ever, we need to be re­minded that the good habits we’ve formed need to be car­ried out reg­u­larly, whether it’s med­i­ta­tion, ex­er­cise, or eat­ing more healthily. And that’s where Habit­Min­der comes in.

Habit­Min­der al­lows you to se­lect from a pre­set list of habits, split into sec­tions such as ex­er­cise and fam­ily time. So you could set up a habit to re­mind you to stretch for five min­utes at 8am every morn­ing, an­other to re­mind you to med­i­tate at mid­day, and a third to re­mind you at 10pm that you promised your­self you’d get more sleep.

The free ver­sion al­lows you to cre­ate up to three habits and see ba­sic stats on how you’ve done. To cre­ate more habits, you’ll need to pay a one-time fee of $9.99 or a re­cur­ring $6.99 an­nual sub­scrip­tion.

Whether Habit­Min­der works for you de­pends on how you view mak­ing pos­i­tive changes. To some it will be a boon, to oth­ers no more than a glo­ri­fied Re­minders app. You could also ar­gue that if a habit has been formed, you shouldn’t need to be re­minded of it. Nev­er­the­less, Habit­Min­der makes chang­ing your life fun and if it helps you on your way, then it’s to be com­mended.
