Anyone who knows me well knows that I am forgetful, very forgetful! I stay busy but honestly, even if I didn’t have much on my plate I would still be forgetful. I have an amazing planner that helps keep my organized but I don’t have a daily reminder to exercise, call my mom, or take my vitamins. There is a new app from Life…Supplemented for iPhones and iPads that can help take the worry out of forgetting to take your pills. You will have to find another reminder to call your mom though.
The first thing I noticed about this app is that it’s free!! You can get the WannaBeWell app from the iTunes store absolutely free. The app has ton of neat features! I’ve already mentioned my favorite though – the reminder to take (or restock) on supplements. You can also create your own personalized Wellness Coach by choosing from a selection of customizable characters who will deliver daily motivational and educational messages. I think these little guys are cute and it’s a fun way to be reminded to live a healthier lifestyle. Did I mention you’ll receive “Healthy Mission” tasks given by the Wellness Coach and you have the opportunity to collect trophies for successfully completing missions? How fun!
On top of the entertaining ways to be reminded and encouraged about living healthy this app is packed full with supplement resources. If you download the app, be sure and take a few moments to browse the Suplement Resource Center which gives information about vitamins and other daily supplements in a simple format and an easy to understand language. I haven’t looked at them all but I’ve heard that it has thousands of articles and insights designed to help make users as informed as possible about their dietary decisions.
LifeSupplemented.org also offers several tools to help keep us readers at our ultimate health. They have a quiz called “My Wellness Scorecard” which gives an initial wellness assessment and free tips for improving your health! Through this test you can find out if you are a AlphaWELL, WannaBeWELL, or an OhWELL. Which do you think you are? I got WannaBeWELL! I’m on the road to wellness.
LifeSupplemented.org also has a blog that provides a forum around topics such as a healthy diet, supplements, and exercise. This forum is ran by an expert panel of bloggers. This is an interesting way to keep up to date on the latest trends and it often helps give a fresh look at old topics. The website also houses the information wealthy Supplement Resource Center that the app has.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this app! I have reminders to take my vitamins, a wealth of knowledge at my fingertips, and my own personal trainer. What more could I want?
On top of all the benefits this app has for you, with each app download, they’ll donate $1 (up to $13,500) to Vitamin Angels. Vitamin Angels is an organization that gives children under five years old the vital nutrient, like vitamin A, that they need. Did you know that just one vitamin A capsule taken every six months can prevent blindness and reduce the mortality rate of children under five by 23 percent? It’s true!
So what are you waiting for? Go download the WannaBeWell app now!
If you’ve already downloaded the Life Supplemented WannaBeWell app what did you think? What did you get on your scorecard?
