Apps, apps, and apps.
These days, everything is on apps. Open any website, talk to any service provider or, buy any product. The first thing they all want you to do it to install their app.
These days tutoring is done on your app, medicines are ordered on an app, shopping, bill payments, health checks and pretty much anything is done on an app.
Ever wondered why everybody is wanting you to install an app?
It is because your mobile phones have become that one inseparable part of you and everybody knows that they can constantly stay in touch with you through your mobile phones.
Why would a company lose the opportunity to stay in touch with their consumers?
In one of our previous episodes (episode # 115) we spoke about the harmful effects of the food ordering apps and how they are influencing our eating habits.
Indeed our habits are changing. Not just our eating habits but almost all of our lifestyle habits.
And most of the changes are being triggered by technology, primarily mobile phones, and their apps.
So, are all apps harmful to you?
Change is inevitable. Human beings are a much-advanced tribe now and technology is an integral part of this change. And in such a scenario, staying away from it would mean that you stay stuck to the stone age eventually making you the odd man.
So, using apps is inevitable. The only thing to keep in mind is that we ensure that we do not give over our controls to these apps (remember SKYNET in “The Terminator” series).
While some apps are harmful, there are yet others that are extremely good for your health. They help you stay fit, track your progress, keep you disciplined and can keep you committed to your goals.
So what are these apps?
I will tell you about 4 such apps that I found extremely useful.
Fabulous app – This is one of my favorite apps. If you lack disciple and the motivation to stay disciplined, then this is the app for you. The app helps you build new habits by providing a piece of science-based advice.
My fitness Pal – If you are somebody who wants to keep a check on your diet, then My Fitness Pal is the one to go to. In fact, I use this app a lot of check on the nutritional value of the various recipes I make or, eat.
Headspace – Interested in improving your concentration and staying energetic the entire day. Then headspace can help you achieve that. Headspace is a meditation app that includes a variety of guided meditations, emergency SOS sessions and various other programs based on your needs.
The Wellness Corner – This app does a lot of things including tracking your calorie intake and burnout levels, managing your health records, assessing your health risks and connecting with various health experts.
Samsung health is another great app for overall health tracking but that is available only for Samsung users.
I am not a huge App fan but, I do use some of the good apps that I feel, can add value to my overall schedules. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to stay away from technology because that wouldn’t be the right advice, considering the era that we are in.
But there is one advice I have for everyone. Be cautious about what aspects of your life and lifestyle you are giving control off, to technology.
With that let us dive straight into this week’s recipe.
Beetroot Halwa Recipe – Healthy Beetroot Halwa Recipe
Beetroot is something that, most people avoid, due to its sweet taste. But I just love beetroot. To date, I prepared 4 recipes including Beetroot Halwa, made out of beetroot, and all of them turned out really well and tasty. You can find those recipes link below.
Apart from this, I must say that the addition of beetroot in your regular diet can give you lots of health benefits too. Beetroots are an excellent source of folic acid and a very good source of fiber, manganese, and potassium. The greens should not be overlooked – they can be cooked up and enjoyed in the same way as spinach.
