We all carry our phones around with us, but how often do you stop and think about how your phone can improve your life even more? There are tons of apps available that make our day to day lives so much better. Here are 5 apps that will help you transition or continue down the path towards a healthy lifestyle.
One of my passions in life is sustainability, and I think that is something we should all strive for. But starting on this path to being better for the Earth can actually start pretty small with household products. Searching countless websites can waste a lot of time and be overwhelming. Think Dirty is a free healthy lifestyle app that allows users to search whatever category or specific body, skincare, or household cleaner they want and it gives the item scores on how healthy/harmful the ingredients are for you and the Earth. This is a super easy step towards sustainable living with an app.
Reminders & Notes
I know none of this is ground breaking, since all iPhones come with these free apps installed on them. But how many people actually use them to their full advantage? In the notes app you can scan important documents and draw on them if needed. You can also create shared notes so if you are planning anything with other people you can all edit the list at the same time. Reminders are super helpful, because of the repeating feature it has. You can set a reminder to always drink a cup of water in the morning and set it so it goes off every morning, forcing you to create what becomes a healthy habit.
This app is the upgraded version of Pinterest when it comes to recipes. Think of all the time you waste trying to come up with good recipes that everyone will like, while stepping out of always making the same thing. This healthy lifestyle app simplifies everything for you, by breaking all the recipes down into easy to manage categories. When you find a few you like, it will automatically generate a store list in your notes of all the ingredients needed for those recipes. With this free app, there is no time wasted on writing things down, and there are easy to follow video and written instructions when cooking.
This app can be purchased for $1.99 in the App Store and it is totally worth it. This app is rated one of the top productivity apps in over 100 countries, and I can see why. You set timers and in that time you can’t go on your phone at all, which makes it great for studying or getting work done. If you succeed in taking that break form your phone it plants trees on your account, so the more goals you reach your forest grows. It also grows in real life which is the best part. This healthy lifestyle app works to plant real trees around the world, based on how many goals are reached by its users.
This healthy lifestyle app is free to download, but costs money for certain features. It features all types of guided mediations to improve your focus, sleep patterns, or center yourself back into your body. They also have breath work videos and workouts to get your body and mind into the same motion. Headspace is great for anyone just venturing into mindfulness and connectivity with oneself. This app makes it super easy and cheap to start.
