Everyone should aim to live a healthier lifestyle in this day and age. People still smoke and drink to excess even though we know how bad it is for us, as well as eat rubbish and avoid exercise as much as possible. This all adds up to an unhealthy body! Luckily, technology has got us covered with the following 7 iPhone apps designed to help us live a healthier lifestyle:
Calorie Counter and Diet Tracker By My Fitness Pal
This app allows you to put in everything you eat, so you can monitor not only your calories, but your macronutrients too. This will give you an idea of how much fat, protein, and carbs you’re eating throughout the day. You can also enter your water intake, exercise, and get fit with friends to help you reach your goals.
30 Day Squat Challenge
You must have heard how amazing squats are? Not only do they work wonders for our legs and glutes, they’re an amazing strength training exercise that allows us to burn calories long after we’ve stopped doing them. Do the squat challenge and you’ll notice a difference in your shape and fitness levels!
Enjoy running or would simply like to get into it? Track all of your runs with Runkeeper so you can monitor your progress. You can even track walks, bike rides, and hikes. Be consistent with this and you may never get bad news from a bluecrest screening!
Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock
If you have trouble sleeping, this app can help you discover the secrets of your own individual sleeping pattern so you can have a higher quality sleep each night. Simply set the app before you go to bed and in the morning you’ll get woken up by a gentle sound at your lightest point of sleep. You’ll also be able to view a graph that tells you how you slept!
The Fitbit is a useful activity monitor that can help us to be more active in our day to day lives. With the app, you can have your activity streamed to your phone, so you can see just how you’re doing! Not only will you be encouraged to get more active, but you can also eat better, sleep better, and manage your weight.
