Nowadays we turn to technology for everything, from advice about what we should be eating to looking up our symptoms to avoid having a trip to the doctor.
Nowadays we turn to technology for everything, from advice about what we should be eating to looking up our symptoms to avoid having a trip to the doctor. It’s safe to say that technology has been designed to help make our everyday lives easier. Not seen your friend in ages? You can reconnect via text message, WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, email, Snapchat – and that’s all from your mobile! With Christmas on the way and the cold weather settling in for the coming months, it’s more important than ever to take good care of your health.
So we’ve done some research and come up with a list of our five favourite apps for health and wellbeing – take a look!
If you suffer from Acne, it’s likely that some of the foods you’re eating could work as triggers, making symptoms worse. So the clever scientists at Northwestern University in America have come up with an app to help you determine which food groups could be having the biggest effect on your Acne. Armed with the knowledge, the user is able to make better informed dietary choices, which ultimately could help your Acne to disappear.
We’ve all seen the dietary information labels on food these days. While they’ve improved significantly in recent years, helping you to quickly spot just how unhealthy that cheese and tomato sandwich is, sometimes you just need a helping hand to remind you that there’s a healthier alternative. After all, what can seem healthy may be loaded with hidden calories – and that’s where FoodSwitch UK comes in handy. Simply use the app to scan the barcode of a food product. It will then display the nutritional information of the product using the traffic light system (red for unhealthy, green for healthy) – give it a go and see how healthy that salad really is.
We’re always being encouraged to be more active – and when you’ve been sat down at your office desk all day boredom eating, it can be hard to work up the motivation to go to the gym. With Garmin Fit, you can store all of your exercise stats, including the number of calories you’ve burned, how far you’ve run, and how long you’ve been exercising for. All of your progress is mapped out for you so you can refer back to it and it’ll give you the incentive to keep on going.
Nobody feels positive and happy 100 per cent of the time so when you’re feeling blue, the Five Ways To Wellbeing app sets you activities to complete to help you focus on improving your general wellbeing and happiness. And everyone knows that when you feel happy, you look great.
Beauty sleep is essential for staving off fine lines and wrinkles but sometimes a good night’s sleep can leave you feeling drowsy. It’s all to do with your sleep cycle – if you’re woken up during a deep sleep, you’re more likely to feel tired, which impacts on the rest of the day and over time, your health. Use Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock to ensure that you’re woken up at the best possible time, leaving you feeling refreshed and energised for the day ahead.
