Technology often gets blamed for poor health and well-being. A classic example is when you’re sitting down for hours on end staring at a computer screen or your mobile phone.
The same technology, however can be used for good, namely improving your overall health in the following ways.
Smoking cessation is the act of stopping the habit of cigarettes and similar products. Every year hundreds of thousands of people are affected by it either directly or through secondhand smoke.
Modern innovations include nicotine patches to try and curb the addiction, and vaping as a way to wean off the real thing. Those who wish to try it can look up first time vaping tips and communicating with other enthusiasts on what the best MTL tanks are.
SMS reminders and apps can also help keep track of how many days you’ve gone without a smoke and may have notes so you could write down your experiences.
Fitness Tech and Wearables
With the pandemic driving everyone indoors it’s now more important than ever to stay fit and physically active.
Aside from the usual treadmills, exercise bikes and traditional gym equipment you can get additional help in the form of wearables. These tiny devices can do a lot of things- track your heart rate, calories burned and steps taken, as well as motivate you to keep working towards your fitness goals.
Recently these devices and apps can provide a fitness program either via video or guided training. Everyone, from beginner to gym enthusiasts will be able to find one that’s tailored to them. It’s easy and lets you get a workout in the comfort of your own home.
Better Rest and Sleep
Sleep is an oft-overlooked aspect of health but it’s just as important as any. Not getting enough or low quality sleep can impact your body as well as how you function throughout the day.
Smart lighting and installing blue light filters in the bedroom can make falling asleep easier. Aside from air conditioning and heating you can opt to get smart blinds that darken the room and activate during mornings.
Wearables can also track sleep quality and have recommendations on how you can do better.
Eating the Right Foods
There’s no more excuse for not eating healthy and nutritious foods. Kitchen advancements have made meal prepping as easy as throwing everything in a pot and letting it cook. You can also get a blender and get a few fruits and veggies together- if you’re pressed for time you can juice it and bring it with you.
Also, you won’t have to visit a doctor or a healthcare center to speak to a nutritionist and get a customized eating plan- you can just telecommute on a computer or smartphone and get a video conference for recommendations.
Apps and grocery services are there so you can have vegetables delivered to your doorstep. Lastly, you can browse the internet for delicious recipes using nutritious components so your body can heal itself and give you much-needed energy for the day.
