If you are always pressed for time and feel stressed out, then one of the first things that will be adversely affected is your health. Today, people claim to not have enough time for sleep, in addition to leading more sedentary lives – both of which again adversely affect health.
The good news is that technology can help you live a healthier life. There are in fact a few solid ways to use technology (in moderation) for better health. Here is a look at a few easy ideas that you can implement into your day.
There are more than a handful of Healthy Mobile Apps that can help you monitor your condition and also make suggestions as to how you can improve your health. All these apps can be found at places like Blackberry App World, Android Market and of course the iPhone App Store. Many of the apps that you come across are even backed by the main pharmaceutical companies.
Examples of these apps include the likes of Journal Entry, Ambi Science, and MyFitnessPal. The last named app keeps track of the calories consumed by the individual. It also allows you to enter exercises to obtain calorie credits. The app can also be synced with your account with MyFitnessPal.com and you can then enter your data on the Web or even on your phone.
Mobile applications are closely related to wearable technology as smartphones can strapped to your arm. These apps can provide diagnostic information and they can also provide treatment that can help you treat yourself if need be. The apps help you by monitoring body functions of the foods you consume, the number of calories burnt and your heart rate.
If you want to test how healthy your nervous system is, then you need to track your HRV. SweetBeat allows you to measure heart rate variability (HRV) in just one session that lasts for three minutes. It also provides you with a holistic view of the way that your body is responding when you perform some workouts. It tells you about various power or energy output levels and in addition it also makes recommendations about how you should train based on its readings.
There are watches that you can use to track not only your heart rate, but also the number of calories that you have burned. These watches also provide information about lap times and duration of your exercise and more. A good watch is not only easy to wear but it also accurately monitors your heart rate. These watches are also very lightweight and so you can easily wear them when exercising them without feeling weighed down. Some watches are even rated for up to fifty meters underwater and they are also waterproof and come with adjustable bands to fit well on any wrist size.
Wearable devices and related computer technology systems can help you stay healthy by checking how rapidly you eat your food. The Bite Counter is a device that appears to be like a watch. It counts the number of bites you make per day by tracking the motions of your wrist. You can use this device to set an upper limit of bites and then stick to that limit. This can help you stay healthy, especially as the device will sound an alarm as soon as you exceed your upper limit of bites.continue...
