We hope that health and wellness is often top of mind when it comes to your daily routine, but we know how hard that can be with busy lives, children, and just trying to find time to yourself. So why not let your handy device (which we know goes EVERYWHERE with you) do some of the work in keeping your health and wellness goals on track? And while you’re cutting carbs, and doing at-home yoga, keep in mind that acupuncture is also a great add-on to the everyday work you’re doing to keep healthy. And it doesn’t have to be done everyday! A few sessions a year can boost the effectiveness of your health routine.

Take a look at 5 apps for your mobile device that we love and you may just enjoy!

Sleep Cycle – This alarm clock uses the accelerometer in your iPhone to monitor your movement to determine your sleep phases and wake you at the best time. Getting enough sleep is crucial to a healthy lifestyle. If you’re having trouble getting those 7-8 hours, this app might be for you.
