5 Wellness Apps That Should Be On Your Phone

These days, our phones are with us pretty much everywhere we go, keeping us on track with (or distracting us from!) work, our families, and our schedules. And when it comes to health, there’s a wellness app for everything.

Many fitness apps even have filters that allow you to select exactly what you need in the moment. Have 20 extra minutes between work and daycare pickup? Find a 20-minute yoga class in an instant, or do a 10-minute meditation to de-stress from your day.

By limiting barriers like cost, location, opportunities to attend gyms or classes (and time spent traveling), smartphone apps can give us more opportunities to live our happiest, healthiest, and more productive lives.

With so many choices, sometimes the hardest part is finding the right apps. Read on to find our recommendations for the best wellness apps for your healthy lifestyle.

5 Best Wellness Apps That Will Transform Your Lifestyle:

Take your exercise outdoors! With AllTrails, you can find trails for running or biking and hiking opportunities near you – which is an extra bonus if you’re traveling and looking to explore while getting your sweat on. Plus, there’s a GPS tracker to help you find your way!

The community aspect of this top health app makes it even more fun. You can see photos and read reviews from other users, follow friends, and keep track of all your adventures in one place.

2. Headspace: Meditation & Sleep


With Headspace, you can select meditation based on what you’re looking for help with, whether that’s falling asleep, stress-relief, or personal growth.
