Health Check! 5 Apps To Keep Your Health On Track

A healthy body is often the key to happiness, but it is not easy to ensure a healthy lifestyle. And that is where technology comes to our rescue—it has several gizmos to help us out. However, we are not going to talk about fitness gizmos here as they would require some investment; we would, rather, we talk about apps that you can download right away on your smartphone and begin your fitness regime instantly. So, here we go!

HealthifyMe

HealthifyMe app is an interesting app that has simple and creative ways to nudge you towards healthy living habits. It allows you to track your lifestyle including your diet, exercise, weight, keeping the Indian context in picture. For example, the calorie tracker has options for Indian recipes and the calories they have. Another key factor that makes this app really cool is: it lets you talk to experts like diet consultants, nutrition experts, etc who not only track your statistics but also offer suggestions and guidance to help you stay on track with your goals.

Runkeeper

Running is one of the best exercises to stay in shape. And if you are a runner, you would really find this app really helpful as it would help you track your running performance. With it you can track how many calories you burned, time your run, measure the distance travelled, and more. Another smart feature of this app is that it can detect when you are working out and when you have stopped, and thus, it accordingly pauses your current workout tracking until you start moving again.

Waterlogged & Water your body apps

We all know drinking sufficient amount of water is really important, but do we? 9 out of 10 people don't because they forget. How about an app that can calculate how much water you need to drink on a daily basis based on your height, weight and lifestyle? Waterlogged is one app that iPhone users can use. For Android users, 'Water your body' app will perform the same function.

Sleep As and Sleep cycle alarm

The Sleep As app helps you keep a track of your sleep and also offers comparisons with other nights. It also maintains your sleep deficit, deep sleep and snoring statistics, which you may choose to post on social networks. Another good thing about this app is the gentle volume nature sound alarm that wakes you up at the right moment without disturbing your REM sleep. For iPhone users, similar features are available with the Sleep Cycle Alarm app.

Pedometer

Walking is one of the best physical activities, which can be easily incorporated as a part of day to day schedule. Just by walking 10,000 steps in a day your health and fitness can improve a lot. Thus, having the pedometer app that monitors your steps is an easy way to stay fit. Moreover, if you can see that you are falling short of the steps, you can start making small changes like taking stairs instead of lift to increase your step count.
