9 Apps to Fast-Track Your New Years' Resolutions

Whether your goal in 2013 is to lose five pounds, manage your finances, or spend more time with friends and family, there are a growing number of apps that fall into the self-help category and can assist you in accomplishing these resolutions.

At Mashable we've tested a lot of them out, but we're still always hearing about new ones. There are a ton of fitness and health apps to chose from, but you might be pleasantly surprised to know they're not all about weight loss. A device and app called Tinke monitors your stress levels and how deeply you're breathing. An app called Fig will remind you to drink more water, skip fried foods and take breaks at work to keep you feeling good. Arianna Huffington also released an app called, "GPS for the Soul" that focuses on wellbeing.
