An App a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

Put your phone to good use and download an app for better health.

You may hear a lot of advice to cut back on screen time––and for good reason. There are plenty of negative health effects from sitting around staring at your phone, computer, or television all day. But if used the right way, your phone can be a catalyst for bettering your health. Millions of apps are available on your smartphone that offer ways to improve your physical, mental, and emotional health. The best part is that many are free. Even when they’re not free, they’re normally pretty cheap.

With so many health and wellness apps to choose from, it can be hard to know which to pick. Here are a few of the most popular apps to try out for your good health.

Nutrition

Looking for an app to help you eat healthily, maintain good habits, and lose weight? MyFitnessPal offers an extensive food database with calorie and nutrition information, a barcode scanner, healthy recipes, and more.

MyNetDiary is another popular diet app with high ratings. Get motivation and accountability to reach your diet and weight loss goals. It allows you to keep a food diary, count your calories, plan meals, track your macros, and record your exercise progress.

Want something different? Try MyPlate. Known to be user friendly, MyPlate offers personalized daily goals, calorie tracking, nutrition facts, and meal plans. You can also access their food database, a barcode scanner, and stats about your personal nutrition.

Fitness

Whether looking for motivation, accountability, fitness tracking, workouts, or classes, there’s a fitness app out there for you. The JEFIT Workout Planner offers a simple way to track your exercise training. It also creates workouts tailored to meet your personal fitness goals. Many users claim it helps keep them motivated to keep moving.

It’s called Map My Run, but it does a lot more than track and map the runs you take. This app can be used to record more than 600 different activities, including walking, cycling, yoga, cross training, and more. When it comes to running, the app can locate places to run, track the number of miles on your shoes, and connect to other devices to analyze your data.

One of the best for beginners, Sworkit offers customizable cardio, strength, flexibility, and yoga workouts at the push of a button. Set goals and track your progress. Only have ten minutes to work out? The app will create a ten-minute workout designed for you. Connect the app to other fitness devices for added tracking capabilities.

Mental Health

Struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, or anger management? There’s an app to help. The tools offered on Moodfit can help “shape up” your mood. Track your symptoms, listen to audio files, read articles, understand what’s affecting your mental health, and learn new coping mechanisms to improve your mood.
Don’t want to drive to an appointment with a therapist? Get connected with a licensed mental health professional for therapy through your phone, tablet, or computer with the Talkspace app. There’s a monthly fee and you can choose either unlimited messaging or messaging plus one live video chat per month.

For those dealing with anxiety, stress, or depression, Sanvello may help. The app tracks your daily mood and health to identify patterns. It then teaches life skills and clinically validated techniques for coping with negative thinking patterns. You can also connect anonymously with a community that understands what you’re dealing with.
