iPhone Apps for Health and Wellness

Our iPhones have become an integral part of our lives and have ended up becoming much more than just our phones. There are thousands of apps available at our fingertips, and for those concerned about their health and well-being, there are countless ways to make sure you're meeting your wellness goals.

The following 5 iPhone apps for health and wellness will help keep you living the best life you can possibly live.

  1. Fooducate

Designed to educate you about the foods you eat, this app comes rated with an average of 4.5 stars. The barcode scanner installed in this app will read the code you swipe at the store and inform you all about the information contained in the contents of your choice. This scanner will also pull up things normally not found on the nutrition label. Not exactly the healthy option you were looking for? Fooducate will offer healthier choices of something similar to what you’re looking for.

  1. HealthyOut

With 5 stars across the board, this popular app is a no-brainer for those concerned with what they put in their body. This guide to local restaurant preferences lets you set your dietary preference-vegetarian, gluten-free, paleo, Atkins, etc and then will search for local restaurant preferences that meet exactly what you’re looking for. This is definitely a must for those who eat out on a regular basis.

  1. Moves

This app will track your walking, biking, and running using your smartphone’s GPS system. All the activity you do is laid out on a map and timeline so you can see exactly where you’ve been in the day. It runs continuously in your phone’s background, so as long as you have your phone with you, you’ll receive a report of calories burned, miles travelled, and other activity statistics.

  1. The Mindfulness App

This upfront and simple meditation app offers guided meditations that run from 3-30 minutes and offer a break from the sometimes craziness we all experience in our fast-paced lifestyle. Meditation sessions can be personalized, you can enjoy silent meditations with a gentle bell reminder, and even be reminded when it’s time to meditate so you can uphold a regular practice. With 4.5 stars, this app has been successful in helping many people find their zen.

  1. PocketYoga

This popular yoga app is excellent for both beginner and advanced yogis and is an excellent choice for yoga you can take with you wherever you go. If you’re feeling the need to balance out, this app offers a variety of options for extremely well thought of routines where poses flow gracefully into each other. The five pose sequences can also be customized by the level of difficulty.
