03 May Wellness Wednesday: Using Your Smartphone for Better Health
There are thousands of apps available in app stores these days, and many of those can help you focus on improving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. These apps allow you to track your diet, measure your fitness goals, and even get better sleep at night. When looking for a new app to assist in improving your wellbeing, shop around and try a few out. There are plenty of free apps available, making it easy to learn what you want out of an app. You can also read reviews before making a decision.
Below we reveal just a few of the ways you can use your smartphone to enhance your overall wellness.
One of the most popular ways to track your fitness these days is using wearable technology, like a smartwatch or similar products. These wearables often connect to your smartphone to record and analyze activity, heart rate, and more. However, depending on how you want to track your fitness, you may not need a wearable at all. Most smartphones these days are equipped with motion sensors that measure steps, distance traveled, and even stairs climbed. Some even have built-in heart rate monitors
Apps can be used for more than just running and walking. There are apps available that have a database of exercises using free weights and more, giving you even more options to achieve your fitness goals. Smartphone apps that track your fitness show your daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly totals, and allow you to compare trends and measure your progress.
Meal Planning and Nutrition
Smartphone apps can also help you log your daily food intake and track things like nutrition and calories to give you an insight into how your diet may be affecting your overall wellness. Many healthy eating apps even let you use your smartphone’s camera to scan a product’s barcode to automatically add to each item you eat to a food journal. Keeping an eye on your dietary intake each day and tracking trends enable you to make healthier choices – even when you’re not using your phone.
Smartphones are being put to use to help people better understand how trouble sleeping is affecting their wellness. Some available sleep apps offer motion tracking and sound recording. The apps can detect and record your sleep talking, snoring, and other sleep disturbances so you can better understand in the morning why you may be having sleep issues. You can also download apps with smart alarms that learn your sleeping patterns and wake you softly each morning during optimal phases of sleep.
A number of health apps can help you manage medications, vitamins, and supplements with reminders, including when to order refills. With built-in notifications or alarms, these apps alert you when it is time to take prescriptions and dietary supplements you are taking. Removing the worry associated with remembering to take your pills and supplements frees you to focus on the rest of your day.
