With a busy student schedule, it can be easy to put your health on the back burner and focus on everything else. But what if keeping track of healthy habits was as easy as pulling out your phone? It is! Here are three apps that can help you stay healthy, even during crazy school schedules.
A healthy lifestyle begins with building healthy habits into your everyday routine. Lifesum will help you be mindful of these habits by tracking it all — from food consumption to exercise. Built into this app are tips, inspiration and feedback so you can stay motivated and committed. Building these healthy habits is all about doing what is right for you! Use this app to personalize your plan based on your goals. Lifesum is your virtual accountability partner.
Being mindful is the first step to eating healthy. It is easy to not think about the food you are eating and just grab whatever is handy. Using a food tracker can help you reach goals on a day-to-day basis. MyPlate lets you view your progress and success through interactive graphs and charts. There’s also personalized meal plans and recipes – yum! MyPlate is a great resource when it comes to getting smart about your nutrition.
Not a runner? Maybe that’s because you’ve never had an app this fun to help you out! Join 45 million other runners, and let this app track your run and set a personal running plan just for you. After the run, you can look back and see the route you took and even share it on your social media accounts. Runkeeper tracks your progress and helps you reach your goals with tangible benchmarks customized to your lifestyle.
Take control of your health by making it easy and convenient to eat healthy and exercise. What do you have to lose? Research shows a healthy diet and exercise can be effective in relieving stress and anxiety. We hope these apps help you work toward becoming your best self – just like earning a degree from South College! Ready to take the next step? Contact us today!
