Now, more than ever before, we have access to thousands of apps and other means of technology to help us live healthier lives. We have found five apps which will help you stay connected with your health on various levels:
Daily Yoga With different programmes focussing on different areas of your body, you’ll become yoga-fit and fab in a few weeks after starting. Easy-to-follow videos will guide you through the movements with soothing music helping you through your workout. As an added bonus you can choose the length of your workout so you don’t have an excuse to skip a day.
My Cycles Period and Ovulation This beautifully designed app helps you track your period each month and is perfect for women who prefer not to use contraceptives or those who want to fall pregnant. The app shows you the next date of your period, when you’re most fertile and when you’ll be ovulating.
My Diet Coach If you need to lose a few kilos and lack motivation, My Diet Coach is an easy app to help you. It comes with tips and motivational nuggets from the online community and allows you to set certain goals. Tick off a goal each time you achieve it and see your progress visually represented. You can even upload motivational images to keep you inspired on your journey.
This is one of many great running apps on the market, but we like it because it makes running social. You can take photos of beautiful scenes encountered on your route and share it with friends. On a technical level the app helps you combine your running stats in an easy-to-read format that you can track whilst running. Use this app for other activities like hiking and cycling as well.
I’m Expecting – Pregnancy App Track your baby’s growth week by week and become part of an online community of women all sharing their experiences. You can also keep a log of your pregnancy symptoms, your baby bump growth, monitor your weight and prepare yourself for your baby’s arrival.
