9 Wellness Apps that Have Nothing to Do with Calories

 9 Wellness Apps That Have Nothing to Do with Calories

I recently shared nine of my favorite mobile apps on The Sophisticated Gal.

If you've been here for a while, you know that I believe true Health & Wellness is about much more than calories, grams, and macros. More than that, I think that focusing too much on those things is actually hurting us a lot more than it's helping.

In this list, you'll find nine apps that will help you take care of yourself without any of the nonsense of calorie counting and food tracking. If you pay attention, you'll see that the one thing they have in common is that they help bring more presence to your days, so you're more mindful of your needs and wants.

Here's the short list:

  • Stop, Breathe & Think
  • Seven
  • YouFood
  • Meetup
  • Kindle & Audible
  • Aqualert
  • Fabulous
  • Five Minute Journal
  • Sleep Cycle

And I have a bonus tip that you can find only over at The Sophisticated Gal!
