You probably already know that your smartphone and tablet can be a great tool to help you stay fit and healthy (that is, if you aren’t spending too much time on your butt watching movies or tweeting) but you may or may not have already decided to take advantage of the many health apps out there. Here, I’ve made a short list of a few apps for Apple and Android that I use myself and love!
Daily Yoga gives you yoga lessons and meditation sessions right on your phone! It also keeps track of what sessions you’ve completed and how many calories you’ve burned. You get plenty of sessions for free, but you have the option to upgrade to pro if you want more.
This one is just for girls! It helps you keep track of your monthly cycle. You enter your data and it keeps a chart for you! It has a lot of features, so don’t get overwhelmed when using it at first! It comes with plenty of instructions! Kindara gives you tons of information about your reproductive health, and you can even share your charts with a community of other women and ask questions (but that part is totally optional!) It’s useful for all purposes, weather you are trying to get pregnant, trying to avoid pregnancy naturally (yes, you can do that) or just making sure all your plumbing is in working order!
The Fooducate app is a handy little app that scans barcodes on food for you, and gives it a grade depending on how healthy or unhealthy it is. It’s quite useful for avoiding processed junk! If in doubt, scan the barcode and see the rating! Fooducate tells you why a product is good or bad for you, and offers a list of better alternatives to the not-so-healthy stuff.
Ipiit is similar to Fooducate, but what makes it different is that you can set your own criteria for what you want in your food. For example: non-gmo, gluten free, all natural coloring and flavoring, etc. Once you scan a barcode, Ipiit will tell you weather or not the product is for you based on your chosen criteria.
I hope you give some of these a try, and let me know in the comments if you know of any more healthy apps that have worked for you!
