It’s no longer a hush-hush talk that we, as young human beings regardless of where we are from, are simply glued to our phones almost for 90% of our entire day. This is no longer a shame for any of us, all those memes and Facebook jokes about cell-phone addiction have simply failed to be funny anymore Ammi ki daant about that ‘24/7 tik tik hi karte rehna’ doesn’t seem to have an effect on us now because we know it for sure: everyone does it and everyone’s enslaved by smartphones, period.
And although it may seem possible for many to get rid of this obsession with our portable devices, what can at least be tried is getting some useful stuff on our phones that can actually be helpful for ourselves: body and mind equally. What we are talking about is how you can use your mobile phones to stay healthy and fit.
Eat Better, Live Better
Apps like MyFitnessPal actually help you keep a track of the food you are consuming, that too along with the food’s nutritional value. So basically, you know where you are going with all that meat and all those veggies, as well as how much calories you are taking in. Keeping a count of all that would help you balance and organize your entire weight-loss game because eating healthy as well as working out goes hand in hand.
Try Out Healthier Recipes
Long gone are the days when you would have to scribble down recipes from Zubaida Apa ka dastarkhwaan on TV each day or rummage through those big and bulky cookbooks your momma might be keeping because all those recipes are now just a click away. Download food apps like Yummly, BigOven and CookPad and the entire world of scrumptious food recipes would be open to you. Best of all, these apps are free and there are so many varieties of food to pick from. Also, if you still wanna stick to Zubaida Apa, even her recipes are available online on her Facebook page.
We know how much you absolutely love putting up your own face as your phone’s wallpaper, but hey, what motivation would that be under fifteen layers of filter? Pick up inspirational fitness quotes from Google or Tumblr, they are easily available and say so much. Set up a quote that best relates to you on a personal level, something like ‘Train like a beast, Live like a beauty’ and each time you access your phone, your wallpaper quote would be there to remind you of your fitness goals and give that spirit of yours a boost.
Download apps like Blogilates and Couch to 5k to help you try out different styles of working out, without going to the gym. All you need is a small space at home and some ‘YOU time’ to get started. Videos on the apps show trainers teaching you how to do those moves and what part of the body they are targeting to lose fat.
