3 Essential Apps For Your Health | Meghan TV

 

The phone. The thing we love. Love to hate. Hate being attached to. Love killing time with. We pretend it makes us more productive, but really it just keeps us busy. We feel lost without it and simultaneously a little freer, too.

And so it is, the complex relationship we have with our smart phones.

But what if we could use our phones to improve our health? That's what I wanted to find out, so I called the best person in all the land to help me answer this question: The Queen of Social Media, my friend Amber Mac.

Since we're ditching New Year's resolutions in favour of awesome intentions, I asked Amber for three apps that could fuel our minds, bodies and spirits.

In this episode, Amber shares her top recommends for taking care of ourselves inside and out. Extra bonus -- not a single one of her recommendations counts calories or tells us how far we need to run to burn them off.

Here are the links to the three apps for your health that we discuss in the video:

App #1: Spirit with The Calm App

App #2: Body with Fooducate (click on the "Our Apps" link in the menu)

App#3: Mind with Lumosity

If you aren't already following Amber on Twitter, do it!

What apps do you use regularly to help you stay on track? Please share your wisdom!

    What a bummer, Fooducate is not available for use in Canada (says my Android phone). Do you know of any programs that are?

      I felt the same way. Can't get any of these apps on my android phone.

        Oh no! We'll have to dig up some Android friendly versions for everyone.

    I already use lumosity and love it and have recently added fooducate but the latest love and for me a literal lifesaver is an app called "healthy out"! I love, love, love this app. I have just changed my diet to gluten free and vegan and this app has been so helpful for me. You just plug in your specific dietary requirements and it tells you every restaurant in the area you are in at the time who serves food you can eat, what the dishes are and how to modify the dish to meet your dietary requirements. It has boosted my confidence and my commitment to following this new diet I have chosen. Everything is so new and this is one thing that I can be certain of. I literally have 15 cookbooks from the library as I learn to eat and cook differently but on the 5 occasions I've eaten out I felt totally comfortable thanks to this app. I consider it one of my essential apps.

    From what I can tell the Fooducate apps are available in the USA only.

    Fooducate now works in Canada? I've been reading their blog for years but the app was sadly U.S. only. I can't find Lumosity for Android. I was using it on my iPhone. I don't see The Calm App in the Google Play store but I'm sure there's something comparable. I got rid of a bunch of apps when I recently made the phone switch - not just because of the platform but because I had so many. Two health and wellness apps that made the switch and that I recommend: 1. Hormone Horoscope. Google the website and sign up for the newsletter - it is SO informative. The app also sort of works as a period tracker (though I have one of those too that so far I'm only using on my old phone until I feel like paying for new apps). 2. MapMyFitness. I've been using it for years and now that I have an Up wristband the two integrate. I'll have to check my iPhone when I get home to see what I have on it because I occasionally still use the iPhone apps over wifi. On the spiritual side, I miss having Gabrielle Bernstein's Spirit Junkie app and sometimes go to Pinterest for my fix of that. I also like the "Yogi Bhajan Quotes" app (iPhone and Android).

      It does not yet... haven't found a perfect option for Canada yet.

    Thank you! I've been hoping for some new apps to help me with my resolutions! I can't wait to try fooducate!
