In today’s modern world, technological advances have provided the general public with a myriad of different ways to monitor, track, and enhance their health. Aside from the usual steps of exercise and diet—people can now keep up with different aspects of their health through apps and programs available for download on most mobile devices.
No matter what service provider you have or where you purchase your device, there are apps available to you that will help you create a healthier lifestyle. T-Mobile, at&t, Sprint, and Verizon all offer a wide variety of cell phones and tablets that will allow you to download applications and tracking programs where you can log the meals you eat, your caloric intake, the number of steps you’ve taken in a day, how many calories you’ve burned throughout the day, and even what types of exercises and how much water you’ve drank.
There are also programs to help you keep track of doctors and specialists appointments so you never have to worry about missing an important appointment because of your busy schedule.
Some of the most popular apps and programs include Daily Burn, MyFitnessPal, Daily Health Tracker, Google Fit, Runtastic, and Lifesum. There are even exercise apps that throw in a little fear and fun to your daily run–like Zombie Run! With this app, you can put in headphones and hear vicious zombie creatures running behind you. If that’s not motivation enough for you to push yourself to run faster, we aren’t sure what is!
There are also apps available for download that help you find healthy, easy, and affordable meals to prepare for you and your family. Some apps assist you in finding fresh, locally grown organic fruits and vegetables. Other apps offer coupons and savings to help you afford healthy food. And some may even offer recipes that are nutritionally beneficial and definitely delicious for those who are trying to achieve a healthy lifestyle but may lack a little know-how in the culinary department!
