5 Helpful Health Apps

If you are like me, you have a lot of things in your life you would like to keep track of. Probably the most important is our health, which is also the thing we most likely let slide. I’ve put together a list of five apps that can make keeping track of our health a little bit easier.
1. Runkeeper, Free
This is an app that tracks your mileage, whether it be running, walking, hiking, or cycling.I really like this app because it is simple to use and it also has a website. There are a variety of cool features, but my favorite is making routes. I can see where I’m supposed to be going while I’m on my run instead of having to memorize directions.
2. Pacer, Free
There has been a recent craze of wearable step trackers, but if you want a simpler option of tracking your steps then Pacer is a good app to do that. It runs in the background of your phone and is simple to use. It has challenges and graphs as well. My favorite part is being able to see your friends’ step count. I used this before I got my FitBit.

If you want to track your food intake, My Fitness Pal is the best app I have found. They have a variety of food choices and the interface is very user friendly. They also have an online component, so you don’t always need to use the app. I really like the ability to add my workouts in to get a better feel of my calorie usage.

4. Sleep Cycle, $0.99
This is the only app on this list that isn’t free, but it’s well worth it.
This tracks your sleep and has an alarm that will wake you up at the end of your sleep cycle so you can wake up refreshed. It also has a variety of other data to help you get the most out of your sleep.
5. Glow, Free
This one is for all the ladies out there. This is the simplest app I have found to help you track your period. It has a simple interface and so many different things you can track. Glow can also function as a fertility estimator. My favorite part is tracking period symptoms like tender breasts and cramping.
It can be really hard to stay healthy and track all the necessary information to do so. These are some of the best apps I have found to be able to do that. Please tell me what you think or name some of your favorite health apps.
