Let us guess — your smartphone is filled with apps? Games, calendars, weather trackers — you name it, it’s available. So if you’re not taking advantage of apps that track your health, you’re missing out. If you’re generally healthy, technology can help you stay that way; if you’re not, some apps can help you stay on top of your condition, while others can even help you achieve weight loss or nutrition goals.

While there’s an app for everything, here are a few for you to consider that are focused on health:

My Fitness Pal offers a simple way to keep track of your calorie intake, complete with a massive internal food database. You can also add personal recipe calorie counts to the app. The app also tracks exercise and allows you to add calories burned and calories ingested.

Johnson and Johnson 7 Minute Workout is just that — a 7-minute workout geared toward your exercise needs. And the best part is all the exercises can be done with a chair! The workouts are medium intensity, and the app coaches you through each move.

Brain Health
Did you know your brain can be trained? Think younger with apps like Lumosity and Elevate. The apps focus on areas like memory, flexibility, math and concentration, and games get harder as your brain improves in these areas. You can track your progress, and see how your brain is improving!
