5 APPS FOR A BETTER YOU! (and a 'nudge')

June 3, 2015

 

 

 

I'm always looking for ways to simplify my life. Whether it's better time management, better routines, less stress, feeding myself better, I want more time to enjoy the beauty & less time going throught the motions.

 

For most of us, trying to create a healtheir, happier life, steals a lot of our energy. Here is a list of 5 apps that have helped me make progress with my goals, while taking the stress & energy of planning out of the equasion. Take a look & feel free to leave a comment with your favorite "better you" app!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1) Nudge

I recently became a nudge coach and really love this app! It's a great database to track food, beverages, movement, sleep, indulgences, energy and weight. It's possible to sync apps like fitbit, jawbone & strava to Nudge to track movement and exercise too! A simple way to plug in your day, see it all in one place & us the accountability to reach your goals. The app is great on its own but if you're considering a health coach, you can hire a Nudge Coach (me) for $50 a month by using my promo code. I can view all of your progress from the backend and help you when you need it most. Give the app a look, contact me to learn more.

2) Owaves

The Owaves app is the first day-planner designed to help you prioritize healthy activities – like exercise, sleep, and nutrition – alongside traditional work and errands. You decide how big of a chunk of your day you want to devote to certain activities and Owaves helps you get in that groove. A great reminder for people who are on the go!

3) MyFitnessPal

MyFitnessPal has the world's largest nutrition and calorie database. For those of us who need a little more intel about the nutritional value of our foods, this app holds a lot of empowerment. This app has helped millions lose weight with the free calorie counter.  We get to hold ourselves accountable for what we put in. I wouldn't recommend this app to anyone with an eating disorder or past eating disorder.

4) Skin Deep 

It's really easy to say yes to a product that reads 'all natural' or 'organic', but sometimes getting the behind the scenes info helps us make a more educated decision about what were putting on our bodies. What we put on is just as important as what we put in.  Get critical info on your personal care products right at your finger tips.

5) Food Scores

We all want to eat healthier, but it's not always easy to know how. Food Scores let's us compare foods for the healthier choice, scan our grocery items for on the spot info, and gives us intel on pesticides, food additives, contaminants, and even antibiotics. This app is a gem; especially in the grocery store before I put something in the cart!

C25K is the easiest program to get beginners from couch potatoes to 5K distance runners in 8 weeks. The program is tailored for first time runners and over 5 million people have gone the distance.
