2020 was a very interesting year for us all. From Global pandemics to lockdowns and beyond – let’s just say we are all relieved that it’s nearly over. On the other hand, we have faith in the fact that 2021 is going to be a year refreshing, replanning, and prioritising the things that really matter in our lives – and if we have an app to help us all along the way, why not embrace it with open arms?
Here are 5 apps to help jump-start your 2021:
Have fun with fitness: My Virtual Mission App
For most of us, it is difficult to stay motivated while exercising. My Virtual Mission helps you stay focused and driven by creating your own fitness challenge. Plot your own start and end points on a world map, record your exercise distance, and watch your progress on the virtual map. As you virtually travel you are able to see a street view of your current location, join in group missions, share your progress with friends and even dedicate your mission as a fundraiser. Run from Cape Town to Nelspruit or cycle from Belgium to Poland, the choice is yours.
Reach your goals: Higher Goals App
With a new year come new goals, and 2021 is going to be new different. When the new year comes about, we create new year resolutions and goals we want to achieve – but more often than not we forget about them as our daily lives distract us. Higher Goals – Goal Setter & Habit Tracker is a well-designed app that will remind you about these goals you have set and will keep you focused on achieving them. On the Higher Goals app, you are able to create a customised dashboard to track and remind you of your goals, get tips for designing habits, stay motivated, and relieve yourself of stress.
Make budgeting easy: 22seven App
If there’s one thing we can all agree upon, it’s that keeping track of your spending habits and trying to save each month can be difficult – so we’ll take all the help we can get! The 22seven app helps you budget, track and invest your money better. See all of your money in one place; Bank accounts, credit and store cards, investments, loans and rewards from over 100 South African financial institutions.

Help your community: South African Red Cross App
Helping and building our community is something that we should always be doing, especially considering the difficulties many have faced during 2020. One way to help is via The South African Red Cross Society (SARCS), which is a member organisation of the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) – the largest volunteer driven organisation in the world. The South African Red Cross app allows you to receive emergency alerts for your community, become a volunteer, enroll in courses offered by SARCS Training Department, buy SARCS merchandise and more.
Less Stress: The Calm App
Our lives can get overwhelming and sometimes we just need to stop and take a deep breath. The Calm app is the #1 app for sleep, meditation and relaxation – and was named by the Center for Humane Technology as “The world’s happiest app.” If you need a break from all the stress in life, The Calm app this is the RIGHT app for you. Access music that helps you focus, get more restful sleep, listen to audio programs taught by world–renowned mindfulness experts, and more.
