The secret of building up a new habit is Consistency and you get consistency with accountability. And to get accountability, you should get a coach. That’s an idea behind the habit building app called Coach.me.
How it works: The way it works is actually quite simple. Add a habit(s) you want to cultivate into the app and set your preferences (such as how many days a week you want to perform it, when to be reminded about it, whether you want to make your goal public or not, hire a coach or not, etc.) accordingly. The home screen of the app shows you a list of your chosen goals/habits – each with a “tick” mark that you are supposed to check off to let the app know that – “You’ve accomplished that goal today”. You can even add notes to jot down how you feel after accomplishing your tasks for the day in order to keep yourself motivated in the long run.
The app keeps a track of how many times per week and per month you’ve checked in. It is convenient to see the habit results as both frequency per week and frequency per month simultaneously on the same screen. You also get a hand to high-five when you meet a certain criteria.
What’s next? The app also has a strong social focus as it believes that peer encouragement works for a lot of people to help stick to their goals and works towards achieving them. Thus, you’ve an option to connect the app to your Facebook and Twitter account so that you can invite your friends and encourage each other in developing good habits.
Add to that, you’ll find an active Q&A community for almost every habit, especially popular ones within the app where you can not only ask questions you may have, but you can also help other members by sharing your inputs, such as what works for you, what motivates you to not to break the habit streak, and so on.
What’s more, you can also go for one-on-one chat coaching by hiring a coach who will work with you (via a text-based chat window within the app) on your goal step-by-step by developing a customized routine for you. Though the personal coaching costs $14.99 per week (per coach), but the app offers 3-day or sometimes 7-day free trial option, so you can try a coach before actually paying for his/her services. In case chat isn’t enough for you, you can also request to schedule a 30-minute skype call with a coach. Note: Each coach has its own fee structure – one coach may charge you $100 per call, whereas another coach may only charge $50 per call.
Overall, Coach.me integrates habit tracking tool, personal coaching and social community into one app, so you never give up on working towards your goals. If you’re serious about building up new good habits and quitting the bad ones, give this app a try. You never know it might work for you!
