The Holidays are here!!! You know what that means??? GIFTS!!! There is so much to choose from out there but there is one thing that everyone wants. TECHNOLOGY!!! That new gadget, that new “It” thing!!! What is nice is there are so many different types of new technology; you have stuff like I-phones, Androids, and tablets. If you decide to buy one of these cool great gifts for someone this year, make it more interesting and download some Healthy Apps for them.
What do I mean by Healthy? I mean apps that don’t consist of an angry bird. There are so many cool apps that can help you lead a healthy life.
My favorite one is an app called My Fitness Pal!!! This app is a great calorie counter and it is so easy to use. It has the largest food database from all the calorie counter apps out there. The nice thing about this app is you can personalize it for your needs. Also it doesn’t only count your calories it also tracks your exercise; it has over 350 different types of exercises.
Another cool app out there is an Oral Health Buddy app. This app helps you keep up with your oral health to keep Dr. Gibbs and Barb happy. It will send you reminders on when you should brush and floss. It also has this cool audio player, what it does is it picks a song from your music and plays it for two minutes while you are brushing, so you will know when you can stop brushing.
You also can find some helpful apps to monitor your diabetes and blood pressure. These apps will send you alert to let you know it is time to test either. They also help you keep note of how your stats are doing. So when you go to your physician next time you can pull out your I-phone, droid, or tablet and give a history of how you are doing.
There are so many cool gadgets out there that can help you lead a healthy life. Keep in mind motivation is the key to living a healthy life, so make it an effort this new year to stay on track using these fun new apps.
