Not-Your-Usual Free Apps to Keep You Fit and Healthy
Most of the time, when we hear the words "Fitness Apps" we usually think of apps that count our steps or measures our heart rates which are usually fully functional with the help of a fitness tracker.
Naturally, we'd want you to be able to upsize your fitness and health but sometimes, we can be just too lazy or busy to hit the gym. We would advise a fair amount of exercise for you but we believe that these apps can be just as helpful in keeping you in tip top shape.
Check out these cute and amazing apps you just have to have:
Developed by Fourdesire's cool team, Plant Nanny is one of the App Store's Best of 2013 for a good reason. Plant Nanny combines health with fun to remind you to drink water regularly. The cute plant keeps you company every day by living in your phone.
With this app, you don't only help yourself when you grab a glass of water, you keep your plants alive as well! Every time you drink water, you have to manually water your plant to make it grow.
With cute plants and several pot designs, this will definitely keep you hydrated!
Period Tracker, My Calendar
Rated as one of the highest period trackers, Period Tracker, My Calendar is what we'd suggest you keep on your phone. This app tracks your periods, cycles, ovulation and the chance of conception. Period tracker helps both women looking to conceive and those trying to do birth control.
Perfect for any woman out there - active or not, trying for a baby or not. We hate having it, sure. But periods are inevitably a part of us and we have to make sure we get regular cycles to be aware of our health as well. There are several illnesses associated with getting irregular cycles. Sure enough, your period can also tell so much about your well-being.
We have to remember that late or too early periods are not just because you're suddenly pregnant cause even the single ladies out there (put your hands up!) can have these too. And it could be because you are overstressed, fatigued, having too much or too little exercise, or actually sick.
What we love about this app is that with regular tracking of your cycle, it can predict when your next one will come (so you can plan your travels in peace) plus, it can be locked for sure privacy as well as give you personalized and private notifications so you won't miss anything.

Calm - Meditate, Sleep, Relax
Calm is the perfect meditation app for beginners, but also includes hundreds of programs for intermediate and advanced meditators and gurus. It features scenery and background music perfect to achieve focus, clarity, and relaxation.
The Twilight app makes your device screen adapt to the time of the day. It filters the flux of blue light emitted by your phone or tablet after sunset and protects your eyes with a soft and pleasant red filter. The filter intensity is smoothly adjusted to the sun cycle based on your local sunset and sunrise times.
This is perfect for those who can't let go of their phones even when already on their beds. Tick on your Twilight app to ensure that your eyes are well rested even if you fall asleep using your phone.
This app is available only on the Play Store but worry not iOS users, your phones have a built-in night mode if you're on the newer OS.
