It is a shame to see this many people with health problems that can be solved by some very basic measures. The most daunting aspect of this is that we live in a world where information is freely available and we carry around pocket-sized computers with more computing power and options than house-sized supercomputers of previous eras. Apps are a great way to get all your needed information, motivation and reminders on the go. There are plenty of useful apps, one for every possible aspect of life it seems, but we seldom stop to think that we can use them to improve our health. Here are some very good health related iPhone apps that will help you get healthier and stay that way for a long time.


AlcoDroid Alcohol Tracker

Almost everyone in the world likes to have a refreshing alcoholic beverage every now and then to helps them relax, but it is easy to go a bit overboard, which can cause both social and health problems. With AlcoDroid you can log in what you drink and get some detailed data in chart form, so you can set some goals and cut back on your alcohol consumption.


Lumoback

Good posture is the cornerstone of a healthy body and is essential for avoiding injuries while training, avoiding muscle imbalances, preventing joint pains and strengthening your core and thoracic extensors. The Lumoback app is combined with a device that is attached around your waist like a belt, and as soon as it senses a slouching posture it will vibrate to encourage you to sit up straight, and it will even track the time you spend sitting down and encourage you to stand up and walk after prolonged periods of inactivity. More about this app read here.


Everyday First Aid HD LITE

Well, Everyday First Aid HD LITE has got you covered. You can have all the first aid information you need at the tip of your fingers, so you can know what to do in emergencies and act quick.


My Diet Coach â Weight Loss for Women

Women in particular are bombarded with unrealistic and unhealthy expectations every day and My Diet Coach strives to improve your understanding of how healthy dieting really works, to motivate you to work out and help you avoid emotional eating and giving in to temptation.


Moves

We have already mentioned the importance of a good posture, but the human body was designed to move and a sedentary lifestyle, even with good posture, can have negative effects on your health. Moves is a pedometer app that tracks your daily walking, running or cycling and the calories burned by these activities. It gives you a realistic idea of how much activity you have during the day and motivates you to get on your feet and get moving.


Workout trainer

Low intensity physical activity will only get you so far and if you really want to improve your health you will need to devote about 4-5 hours a week to a more serious form of training. Workout trainer is a great app that will help you strengthen your body. Mens sana in corpore sano, as the ancient Romans would say. The app provides you with a huge number of different workouts, with pictures as well as audio and video instructions detailing each exercise. The exercises included are varied â everything from interval running and weight loss specific workouts, to some serious weightlifting routines and relaxing yoga exercises. You can play the music you like while exercising and create your own unique workouts once you learn the basics and get used to exercising regularly.


These apps will cover most aspects of your health â from tracking alcohol intake in social scenarios, being mindful about what you eat and developing a good posture, to increasing your activity levels throughout the day, working out and being prepared to handle common illnesses and injuries.
