Ever wished it was easier to track your health? Ever made a visit to the doctor’s and known something was wrong, but you couldn’t quite pin it down?

Do you ever find yourself wishing that you were more dedicated to your health, but you just don’t have the time?

If this is you then good news! Application developers have come up with the solution. In the day and age of innovative technologies, you now have the ability to keep track of your health from your phone. Now all your excuses can be pushed away. With the accessibility of health care tracking apps right at your fingertips, there’s no reason to avoid taking care of your health any longer.

There are many options available in the category of health apps, so it may seem overwhelming when you try to figure out what is best. Here’s a breakdown to help you figure out which apps can be most helpful for you.

General health

We often find ourselves experiencing unusual symptoms without apparent correlation. When this happens, it’s difficult for a doctor to help diagnose your problem without measurable data recorded. One recommendation to solving this problem is keeping a symptom diary. This is where apps like CareZone come in.

CareZone is an app that helps you manage all aspects of your health. On this app, you can get free medication delivery, upload your prescriptions, manage your medications, and track your health information. The categories available for tracking are blood glucose, blood pressure, pain, headache, mood, nausea, weight, seizures, and more. This app is a great resource for journaling your symptoms between doctor’s visits and keeping track of your health so that next time you go in for a visit you have tangible proof of your ailments.

Managing your sleep

If you weren’t already aware, your sleep can impact your health. Sleep deprivation can impair both your mind and your body, so it’s important that you take your sleep seriously. There are many apps out there that claim to track your sleep and help you manage it, but some do it better than others.

One great sleep tracking app is SleepScore. This is an app that provides you with an in-depth analysis of your sleeping patterns. With this app, you can learn what really happens when you go to bed at night.

Fitness

If you’re looking to use your phone to help you shed a few pounds, you have a ton of options. There are two main categories for fitness apps: exercise and diet monitoring.

A great option for tracking your exercise is the 30 Day Fitness Challenge Log. This app challenges you to dedicate time to your health every day for 30 days. It becomes the motivational coach you’ve always needed but never wanted to pay for. Loaded with hundreds of exercises and video instructions for all routines, you can’t go wrong with this app for fitness tracking.

When it comes to monitoring your diet, My Fitness Pal may be the right choice for you. This is a fast and simple app to use to count your calories and keep yourself accountable throughout the day. Next time you go to pick up a second dessert, you’ll be able to stop yourself by remembering your progress throughout the day.

Mental health

One of the often forgotten about factors to maintaining a healthy, balanced life is dedicating time to your mental health. Your mental state is an important contributor to living a fully healthy life that shouldn’t go ignored. Thankfully, there are many resources available that help you track your own progress and continue your path towards achieving mental health.

One way to focus on your mental health is through Calm, a meditation and mindfulness app that can help you reduce anxiety and stress, increase happiness, and sleep better. By using Calm, you can learn how to meditate for relaxation. Another feature of Calm is Sleep Stories, audio recordings that help you fall asleep. This app will help you be another step closer to living a wholesome, balanced life.

HabitMinder is another great option available to help you take time for yourself throughout the day. In this app you can track and log your habits (walking, hydrating, relaxing, stretching, etc.) to ensure you’re dedicating enough time to healthy habits and not focusing on unhealthy ones.

All of these apps provide a simple, convenient way to find time to dedicate to your health. While each of these apps can help you monitor your health and progress, it is always advised to contact a medical professional for accurate diagnosis and treatment.
