7 fitness and lifestyle apps that will improve your life

Make your life ‘appier’ with the latest health and wellbeing software

For menopause…

If menopause or peri-menopause symptoms are getting you down, or you want to manage your menopause more naturally, why not download the new Health & Her Menopause App?

It features lots of clever tools, such as daily symptom assessments, supplement reminders and guided exercises in cognitive behavioural therapy, guided imagery for sleep, pelvic floor training, deep breathing, and progressive muscle relaxation.

The app is designed to work alongside the Health & Her supplement range and, drawing on the knowledge of more than 50,000 women, is thought to be the UK’s first integrated approach for women looking for a more natural way to manage their menopause. 

Download for free from iOS App or Google Play stores.

For stress and anxiety…

If you’re feeling tired, anxious, worried or overwhelmed, or just finding it difficult to deal with the impact of coronavirus on your life, Ailsa Frank’s new Feel Amazing hypnotherapy app could be just what you need.

Designed to help get your mind and life back into balance, the app is designed to help you sleep better, worry less, achieve more and break bad habits.

It features four free hypnotherapy recordings: Stop Worrying; Good Night’s Sleep; Release Daily Stress, and Fit and Well, as well as a selection of calm, easy listening music to help you switch off.

Or for an annual membership fee, you can tap into all 45 recordings and continue benefiting from rich hypnotherapy content for long-lasting change.

For overall wellbeing…

Classical music has been proven to improve mood, lower stress levels and boost overall wellbeing.

Discover hidden gems and the history behind the classics, as well as a wealth of in-depth podcasts, with Primephonic which is considered the ultimate streaming service for classical music lovers.

For vegans…

Being vegan just got a whole lot easier, thanks to the popular vegan foodie LiberEat app which has now teamed up with The Vegan Society to show specific products accredited with its trusted and reputable Vegan Trademark.

The app, which was created by a Scottish nurse, helps find meals based on individual preferences, as well as filtering food ideas for those with intolerances or allergies.

The in-app scanner also allows you to double-check whether a product is suitable for your vegan profile and the shopping cart means you can do a weekly shop from the comfort of your sofa! What’s not to love?

For happiness…

Take control of your diet, fitness and overall happiness with the new Beyond app, which combines a healthy mix of fitness guides, recipes, journal and in-app chats with a like-minded community.

Basically, Beyond is here to boost your positivity and wellbeing.

Expect positive daily phrases and affirmations to keep you positive and grounded, journaling ideas and lots of tools you can personalise to suit your goals, such as a calorie counter you can turn on and off.

For fitness…

Meanwhile, FLOCK is the first fitness app which allows you to subscribe to your favourite online creators, influencers and instructors.

It offers unlimited access to immersive workout experiences anytime, anywhere – and is proving so popular there’s actually a waitlist.

Released to a limited number of users at a time, it helps you stay motivated and get creative with your fitness regime one workout at a time – with real people!

For mental health…

Clinical advice doesn’t often go hand in hand with a holistic approach to mental health, but the NHS-approved My Possible Self app is bucking the trend.

The software is designed to help manage anxiety, tackle depression, reduce stress and improve sleep – pretty much what most of us need right now!

Its content has been curated and developed by wellbeing experts at The Priory Group and even tackles unhelpful habits such as drinking and gambling.

It tracks and monitors individual behavior and offers personalised insights into moods, thoughts and emotions, while promoting helpful activities, such as visualisation and CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) techniques, and positive thinking.

Download from the Apple App or Google Play stores for £1.99 a month.
