We live in a culture that is consumed with doing things quickly. We are connected to our phones, and rarely leave our homes without it. This has lead to epidemic increases in depression, anxiety, as well as unhealthy obsession with our physical image. But what if you could use the power of our phones, coupled with the speed and availability that makes them so effective, for our health instead of for our detriment. We’ve put together a list of our favorite apps that are changing the way we observe our feelings, our cycles, our health, and or health care.
