Applify your life

Research shows we spend 3 hours of our day on our cellphones; or 23 days per year – on our phones browsing through memes, reading news, checking emails,making check lists and setting reminders to not forget to feed the dog. So if we spend a good part of our day on our phones  why not make it beneficial  to our health and habits.

The content of this blog is not an advert nor was I paid to say this, it is based on my personal experiences and practices. 

 

So why not use our devices to keep track of our healthy habits? Or help us start and maintain good habits? That is exactly what Samsung health is doing since I switched to samsung Android phones back in 2013 with my galaxy S3.

It keeps record of your sleep patterns (waking and going to bed), caffeine, food, and water intake for the day. And with the more buffed up Samsung S8 you can also measure your heart beats per minute regularly.

You basically have your personal health tracking literally in your pocket.

 

My personal favorite is the step counting it does on a daily basis.

In the image above it gives my step count so far for the day and 6000 steps is the goal you need to aim for per day ( yeah, I still got a long way to go today). The last and latest heart beats per minute measured is also shown as well as the option to check it again.

Yes. It comes with reminders. Depending which habits you looking to achieve daily and your personal settings, you will be reminded of it throughout the day.

Apart from changing these habits, samsung also has a smart trainer with various exercise programmes to get you started with easy exercises as well.

There is some other cool Apps to look into you can download on your phone as well like: Fitbit, the Nike training app, Fat secret and google health. Most of these apps do the same things like tracking habits and giving reminders when necessary as well as keeping record of your activity to give you a weekly summary of your activities.

Fat secret is a calorie counting app that gives the energy of the food you are eating. I do not and I repeat DO NOT use it for myself on a daily basis, but it is a good tool to use when you are uncertain about the nutrient value of a food and it does come in handy when I need to get an estimate of a clients calorie intake based on the diet history given.

A lot of major companies like samsung and Fitbit are also into making healthy lifestyle gear in the forms of watches, phones and mp3 pods that can basically also do everything the phone does just in a smaller more compact lifestyle friendly size.

And with the added bluetooth function you have music in your ears via a watch to do your workouts with.

There’s lots to be read up on discussed when it comes to health, apps and habits but the only thing you need to know is your phone can do a lot more than just share memes and take calls.
