One of the common apps you will see are exercise and fitness tools. I’m sure we have all been there; we catch a side view of ourselves in the mirror and wish our bellies were a little smaller. Especially if we’re going away on holiday soon or after an indulgent Christmas, but the reality is that we find it too hard to motivate ourselves or make excuses like not having the time, working too much or not being too tired.

Getting and Staying Motivated

Well with these apps we can get real feedback about the exercise we do. Many use your phones built in sensors such as pedometers and GPS to track how far and how fast we move. They can advise us how many calories the exercise is expected to burn and let us plot and compare our daily, weekly and monthly progress so we can see just how effective our workouts are. We can even get this plotted on a map when we get home so we can have a visual aid to help us. This in turn gives us a sense of achievement and helps us gets motivated for exercise.

Sleeping Correctly

How many times do you wake up tired in the mornings and feel like rolling over and going back to sleep? You need that mug of coffee or three to get into gear.

They will also suggest the optimum times for you to sleep so as you should be waking up well rested and ready to tackle the day head on.

Checking You’re on the Right Tracks

Another useful app is a cardiograph or heart rate monitor, some of these can measure your heart rate by having you put a finger on the camera lens, and this can then detect changes in the picture and measures your heart rate. For people with heart conditions or who want to keep tabs on their health this can be very useful as a history of readings can be saved to track medical progress or medication effectiveness.

Eating healthy

Doing exercise and monitoring our health are all well and good but we’re only as good as what we put into our bodies. Have you ever heard of the acronym GIGO, It stands for Garbage In, Garbage Out, so in order to have geed health and function well we have to put in good food to power our bodies.
