Use Your Phone to Get Healthy in Various Ways

By Brandi Swieter 

Phones can be harmful to health if people are spending the majority of their days looking down at their screens. Text neck is a serious problem many chiropractors see. However, phones can also be beneficial if people use them wisely. Individuals can use their phones to get healthy in various ways.

Tracking Sleep Patterns for a Better Night’s Rest

Without enough sleep, many people struggle throughout the day. They tend to feel tense, snap easier, and have trouble coping with stress. Getting enough rest at night can be a huge step in the right direction for one’s health. Tracking sleep with the help of a phone is one way to ensure a better night’s rest. Apps that allow users to track sleep may ask for food intake, number of hours spent looking at the screen, exercise, and other details that could help people pinpoint where their problem lays and help them see where to make changes.

Tracking Food Intake for Weight Management

Whether a person is trying to lose weight or simply maintain the weight they’re currently at, a food tracking app will come in handy. Tracking what he eats throughout the day will help a person discover whether or not they’ve received adequate nutrition. Should some substitutions be made? Did plenty of fruits and vegetables consumed? Were there too many desserts in the diet for that day? Tracking these details helps people make changes for the better.

Tracking Steps for Improved Fitness

Tracking steps helps people improve their fitness. Each step a person takes will get recorded into the app. It will show how many steps were taken throughout the day and tell the number of calories burned. People can see how much they’ve walked and how they can add more steps into their day by forgoing their daily commute in a vehicle and opting for a walk instead. It is also possible to input other fitness activities and workouts to see calories burned and other beneficial details.

Tracking fitness, food, and sleep with the help of a phone app is a simple way for people to get back on track with their health. Phones and other devices come in handy for health as long as individuals are using them wisely. Apps such as MyFitnessPal, SleepTime, and Strava Training are some possible choices.
