Health is kind of a big and scary word. It can seem like a huge responsibility to need to manage your heart, your weight, your shape, and mental and emotional wellbeing.
That’s why we made Lifesum. We wanted to make it easier for you to manage your health. No stress, no fuss, just simple everyday choices that help you point your health in the right direction.

1. Eat a little less red meat

Not only is it good for the environment, but it’s good for your heart and cholesterol too. Use the red meat tracker in the Lifesum app to check how much you’re eating each week.

2. Exercise often

Getting your heart rate up for about 150 minutes a week is the key to a healthier heart, a longer life, and a stronger body. You can track all your exercise in the Lifesum app; anything from yoga and barre to CrossFit and running.

3. Drink more water

Thirsty, fatigued, grumpy, and with dull, prematurely ageing skin; this is who you become when you don’t drink enough water. It can be hard to build the habit, but start with filling a water bottle each morning and taking it wherever you go, and use Lifesum’s built-in water tracker.

4. Eat more fruit and veg

We’ve all heard the old adage an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but in reality it takes a little more than that. We need fruit and vegetables for all the vital nutrients they offer; vitamin C and vitamin D, potassium, fiber, and folic acid are just a few of the nutritional benefits provided in fruit and veggies. They help us regulate blood pressure and blood circulation, healthy hearts, quick healing, and good bowel moments. Use Lifesum’s fruit and veg trackers will help you make sure you’re getting more than enough of your five a day.

5. Keep an eye on things

Managing health is all about knowing how well things are going and staying ahead of everything with good habits. Make sure to check in on your cholesterol, weight and other measurements to make sure you’re on track. You can keep track of body measurements and more in the Lifesum app to make sure that you’re right where you want to be in your health.
