I use this app called "rewire", it counts your streaks, makes graphs and even remembers your record and sets it as a goal. Really good app. [link]
Personally, I find gamification unnecessary. Doesn't motivate nearly enough and eats up more resources. I really think you should check out HabitHub. It's only for Android right now but it's coming soon to iOS. It's neat. Has all the features you might want. I subscribe to the notion that it takes 3 weeks to form a habit. You might feel like it takes a different number, but it has you covered, you can define the number of days for each habit and check your progress. It's an app that just works and has a neat UI
I haven't used Productive, but I like Rewire. I have tried HabitBull a few times, since it looks cooler, but I tend to return to Rewire.
Maybe look into any of the habit apps like HabitHub or Loop Habit Tracker
Lots of apps like that which will help you track your health habits. There is HabitHub, for example.
And Habit Tracker
Nothing super exciting /new it's a habbit tracker.. But its recent updates have made it really amazing.
The widget on my home screen makes it easy to update, really easy to see what you wanna do and easy to see how your tracking. Has graphs and all the nice data views.
It's really helped me a lot get back into reading, riding to work going to the gym etc. I love it.
Another related thing that it helped me with was changing jobs. I used to to quantify all the things that I loved / hated about my job on a daily basis and was amazing in really helping me inform that decision to leave. I was even able to show it to my boss when I resigned and said " Hey checkout all the things I found valuable and all the things I disliked about my job and here are the metrics over the last 6 months after you said things would change to prove to you, from my view nothing has changed" He was a bit taken back by it. Every time I think "oh should I have left that last job?".. I think back to that data and say to myself nope I made the right decision.
Thank you HabbitHub!
That's really useful for me, but I already use an app that does this you're saying, the name is HabitHub, you can see it here: [link] . I really love this app. By saying this, I don't want do discourage you, but only to warn that maybe there's already an app that does what you want to do :).
You're just making up excuses so you won't do the dailies.
Use r/theXeffect or habit apps like [link] (by the way that app is 100% worth the premium upgrade!)
Subscribe to sites that promote good health and mentality, like quora, lihehack and health.com.
Or just basically break the goals into smaller bits, like take if you want to learn programming break it down into what language you want to learn, what do you want do with it, what subtopics and aspects are needed for that goal etc etc
First of all smile(literally) and know that you'll get there eventually if you just try, even a 5 minute learning session is fine, as long as you keep it up!
It's not we-them, it's just we.
I was going to suggest /r/getdisciplined and /r/thexeffect. Habit forming would be a great way to get yourself into studying/working on assignments every day, so that's why I suggest the x effect. It's a simple tool to track "streaks" of completing a task over time.
There are apps that can help if you need a ping every now and again to get started too. At the moment, I'm liking Rewire for my habit tracking.
First off, the carb cravings diminish over keto time accumulated they can even subside altogether after some time.
I can relate to your plight. Personally I've found if I binge on carbs I'm just not happy with myself and it gets me nowhere but I do understand that it is hard.
One of the things I use to help myself stay in check is a daily habit app called Rewire (android) - where every day that I stick to my diet I mark as done and I create a chain. I've set a 144 day goal that leads up to a vacation I'm taking where I will be spending a week hiking Hawaii - which is a nice incentive.
Additionally I don't require that my diet be perfect - sometimes I need to fall out of Keto because I'm in an environment where that is necessary, in those cases I just require of myself that I'm doing the best I can with what I have and not using it as an excuse to eat whatever I want and fall off the wagon. For instance this upcoming Tuesday I am going with my friends to a prominent Italian restaurant - I will likely eat carbs. But I will do my best and that doesn't mean I'm going to go cray with bread, drinks, desserts, etc. That's perfectly fine - in fact I think the occasional controlled fallout of keto is just fine.
One thing I will say is as you get some keto time together you will start to feel markedly better. My diet has been on point as of late and I feel incredible - my energy is so on point which sends me into an upward spiral with other areas of my life. I do not want to throw that away, so that helps me on the diet as well.
But at the end of the day keep in mind that your human and the very fact that your trying to improve is commendable - no one expects perfection of you and this stuff isn't supposed to be easy per se.
Anyways feel free to reach out if you have any questions or want to check in with someone.
How about something like a tracker app for different things in life? I like to track multiple things in my life to see when and/or how often I do something (my last haircut/frequency of Tylenol intake/lawn mowing, etc.), or to utilize the Seinfeld chain-method to stick to a new habit(s). I could track all of these in one app, possibly. I'd love to be able to scroll through a monthly calendar to see my progress/milestones. Just a thought.
Edit: I occasionally use Rewire for the above things ([link]), but I could never shake the feeling that it wasn't made for what I was exactly looking for. For example, I would like a way to toggle between a monthly calendar view and a list of dates to see when I did something in the past; as well as a widget that I could tap to record that I did an activity (for multiple activities, too).
Bah, iba a poner los míos y me olvidé.
Yo estoy o mejor dicho estaba en medio de una pausa por una lesión en la espalda y el hecho de que tenía que cambiar la barra porque la otra estaba muy baja. Ahora que estoy bien y ya arreglé eso, puedo empezar de nuevo. Mi meta es lograr formar el hábito que no he logrado formar este año, porque cada vez que empiezo alguna weá me distrae o detiene.
Mi objetivo por lo tanto, será completar mi rutina básica de resistencia por 6 semanas, entrenando al menos 4 días a la semana. Para registrar mi progreso, voy a usar la app HabitHub. Después de las 6 semanas creo que cambiaré a un objetivo más relacionado con el desempeño físico.
Those are a lot of changes you want to make at the same time... I'm cheering for you, but you should keep in mind that it's very hard (not impossible, but hard) to stay on track this way. You can try to make it work, but have a "plan B" in mind if it doesn't. Maybe an app where you log your "win streak" would be motivating? (something like this)
I use Rewire. It keeps track of everything and even makes graphs so you can easily visualize your progress over time. I use it for other habits I'm trying to cultivate or weaken, too. It's got a lot of features; I highly recommend it.
I did all of the following and it seems to have worked:
My sleep schedule isn't perfect but it's now a lot more reasonable. I'm able to get up early enough to do my whole morning routine and get to work at a respectable (early for a software engineer!) 9:30am. Since I can wake up early in the mornings, I'm thinking I can now integrate a morning run into my routine to work towards some basic fitness goals of mine.
Not sure if it's what you're looking for, but you might want to take a look at Rewire. I use it personally to track 6 daily goals as well as weekly. Features I like about it are the ability to set reminders, categories, widgets, skip days, and auto-backup. The regular version is free, and there's a premium version for a one-time $5 in-app purchase that unlocks the ability to add more than 5 goals and apply themes.
What if someone told you to floss only one tooth everyday? Or start the new year, not with grand resolutions, but with a simple challenge.. like ONE push up a day?
For eg. The push up habit. The first day I did 10 push ups, which only took 15 seconds or so. The second day, I did 11 push ups. This was a very tiny improvement. I've continued this patter of adding 1 pushup per day, every single day. I did 28 this morning, which was still easy to do and took less than 30 seconds. You can track your habits too. I use Rewire- Habit and Goal Tracker [link] It keeps me motivated through its quotes,rewards and simplicity.
What if someone told you to floss only one tooth everyday? Or start the new year, not with grand resolutions, but with a simple challenge.. like ONE push up a day? Don’t design for the outcome. You need to design for the behavior that leads to the outcome.
If you ask me 'Forget big change, start with a tiny habit'. For eg. The push up habit. The first day I did 10 push ups, which only took 15 seconds or so. The second day, I did 11 push ups. This was a very tiny improvement. I've continued this patter of adding 1 pushup per day, every single day. I did 28 this morning, which was still easy to do and took less than 30 seconds.

4 days is long time, I always hope for that long of a streak, because it helps the skin to heal, and the better it looks, the less likely I am to pick on it (I feel more motivated to keep it untouched).
If you like visualisations, maybe Rewire app will be useful for you.
For me its two apps: Rewire (a visually apealing app based on the "seinfeld chain method") And Instant Quantified self (A app that tracks the time you spend/waste on your phone) this was a real enlightment for me.
I like the app "rewire" on Android. Very fine app and I've used it for quite a few things. Complete with nice graphics and home screen widget.
I've started to use Rewire few days ago. So far I'm happy.
We as humans are habitual creatures. Whatever you want to improve about yourself you need to do every day. A good app to help you build habits is Rewire (Play Store link) for android.
If you're a student Thomas Frank on youtube has some good videos to improve your productivity and retention of information.
Writing a journal entry every day before bed about your accomplishments and goals. Writing about your day will help you reflect on what you are doing good on and what you can improve about yourself. Remember to be brutally honest in this journal, being honest with yourself is one of the most important parts of becoming a better person.
A few times a day, give someone (especially people you don't know) a genuine complement and remember to smile as you say it. Doing this, since complements seem to be few and far between now a days, you'll more than likely make someones day and you might even make a new friend. Smiles are contagious and infect everyone around you.
If you are afraid to talk to other people I will leave you with this

Nice app. I personally use rewire on android
HabitHub - 4.4/5
[link] here it is on the play store, might not have an ios version though
I've tried a bunch, but have stuck with Rewire - Habit & Goal Tracker, as it does everything I need.
I like to use Rewire on my android. It helps with habit forming.

Try HabitHub, I used this all this year, and really like it!

This one maybe
Rewire is pretty sweet. Customizable goal/habit tracker.
I like myfitnesspal for a nutrition/water tracker. Mainly just because it was the first one I tried so I'm used to it.
If you have mental health issues at all emoods is pretty decent. It'd meant for bipolar disorder I think but I use it to keep track of how many hours I slept, my depression, anxiety, period, and my medications. It's not great but I haven't come across anything I like more for tracking my mood.
If you're a woman clue is a sweet non-girly period tracker. It tracks your cycle, pms symptoms, when you have sex, sex drive and notifies you when you're ovulating, when your pms will likely start and when your period will start.
Of course! [link]
This is the same thing, but in an app form.
My personal favorite app for habits is Rewire: [link]
HabitHub or Loop Habit Tracker
Habit Hub lets you define how many times a day you perform something:
Otherwise, what you're describing sounds like a daily timer app like ATimer that let's you track duration of one or more things in a day and track over weeks, months, years.
Have a look at "HabitHub"... very similar and has some nice graphs and the ability to set rewards for your tasks....
Is it this one- HabitHub
I used Flaredown to track my symptoms & well-being for a few months. Somewhat ironically, a hard-hitting flare put an abrupt end to my effort.
On the side I'm also having -
All the apps can export their data to CSV for further aggregation. I'm yet to try that.
Something like smart wristband makes it much easier to track data on sleep, activity, heart rate. I'm getting by with the low-end Mi Band 2.
It's a balancing act. Between generic but readily-available means vs. making a custom system. Between the data precision & detail vs. managing cognitive overhead it brings.
Ultimately it's means to an end of improving your own well-being. Starting with minimum-effort take on most meaningful metrics might be a good way to go.
I wish I could automate more of this. Manual entry can get tiring on its own right. I believe this comes with its own unique challenges - past some point the cost of monitoring is enough to negatively affect the system being observed. Something along those lines.
Android or Apple?
If Android, try Rewire
It's only available for iOS. I use Rewire for Android.
It helped me to build a lot of good habits.
Rewire works great as well
Check these. I came across in /r/getmotivated sub
Buy the full version, it's 100% worth it!
I've been using an app called Rewire. It helps a little with motivation when you can see the streak you have going.
