In this day and age we're extremely lucky with the vast amount of information and potential at our fingertips. Our smartphones offer us a unique opportunity to accomplish many of our goals in life, and becoming healthy is just ONE of them.
With a little adjustment, your smartphone can turn into your own personal health assistant, nudging you and prompting you towards a healthier, happier, and more vibrant version of you.
In today's post, I’ll be exploring exactly how you can transform your smartphone into a healthy living device.
First and foremost, we all know about apps, they're nothing new, and they've been around since the dawn of the smartphone. However, with the recent advancements in technology and the world of applications, they're now more beneficial and useful to those with healthy living goals than ever before.
Whether you wish to follow a diet, learn a new diet, learn yoga, track your fitness progress, and so on, you can achieve it via an app.
Let's take yoga for example.
If you wanted to learn yoga or to improve your yoga skills, you could use any number of the yoga apps available that will give you daily reminders, alerts, videos, audios, and tutorials on everything you'd need to know about your chosen area of yoga.
Alternatively, if you're interested in improving your mental health, you can use apps related to meditation, mindfulness, and healthy thinking.
Alerts and Reminders
Alternatively, if you already know your health-related routines and information, you can take advantage of what comes with every smartphone, alerts, and reminders.
Simply set up daily reminders that prompt or remind you to take action on your health plans.
Let's face it, we all have the greatest of intentions for our health related goals, but life can sometimes get in the way, and we often forget about them.
Alerts and reminders take care of that issue, as they can be set to go off at numerous times of the day, each and every day.
For example, if you wanted to ensure that you're drinking enough water throughout the day as you've noticed you're frequently dehydrated, you could set up daily reminders to go off every day reminding you to drink more water.
It's such a simple approach yet it works wonders. Also, there's a subtle feeling of satisfaction by ticking off daily reminders as they come up, feeling as though there's one less thing to worry about or “to do” that day.
Wrapping things up…
Overall, turning your smartphone into a healthy living device is easily achieved through setting up a few automated solutions.
Installing apps and filling out your requirements takes 1-2 minutes at most, and the same goes for setting up daily alerts and reminders related to health goals you have.
I believe that the best solutions in life operate in a simple yet effective way, and that's what smartphones are all about. However, it's surprising how many people don't take advantage of the benefits and features that their phones have to offer.
Perhaps it's because people see them just as “phones” or social media devices. Your smartphone can do so much more than send a tweet or make a call; it can help you transform your life and reach your health-related goals.
Try these ideas out for yourself, and see how much more aware you are of taking care of yourself. Alerts and prompts can eat away at people if they go unaddressed, which is why they're so effective.
