It’s incredible to me that less than about decade ago, our phones were merely used to call our friends and family. Now, you can do absolutely anything on it, and it’s become our very own personal assistant. We panic when we go to reach for the phone and it’s not where we left it last, and we wouldn’t dare leave it at home when we jet out to run errands. It’s a part of our lives now — and a huge part, at that. I like to take advantage of all that’s available and make my phone work to my benefit as much as possible. One of the ways I do this is by having several useful health apps on my phone that help me in various ways stay on track, no matter where I am. I wanted to share with you some of my clients’ favorites, in case they could help you, too!
FitRadio: Having a good playlist to motivate you through your workout is incredibly effective, helping the time go by faster and upping your energy. Download FitRadio and find the perfect station for you!
Couch to 5K: If you shy away from running because you feel like it’s been too long and you’re rusty, or simply not good at it, try downloading Couch to 5K. This free app helps you ease into running using a manageable approach, getting you from zero to 5k in about three months.
Happify: There’s not one of us that couldn’t use some help with our emotional wellbeing – we fluctuate day to day, and it’s something we need to be incredibly mindful of. This app was developed by positive psychology experts and is a beautiful tool in taking control of your emotional wellbeing.
PocketYoga: For those busy weeks where you can’t sneak away to a yoga class, the PocketYoga app is the perfect companion. Fit in a yoga class no matter where you are.
Charity Miles: This app is an amazing way to raise money for a charity of your choice as you also work towards your health goals. I think this is a fantastic motivation tool.
