It’s the new year and I know a lot of you want to be more proactive in maintaining health as one of your top priorities. I have 3 apps to introduce you to and I hope they will make following your new years resolution much easier.
Clue is a period tracker that tracks your monthly menstrual cycle. Now, it seems that this app is geared towards females, but it was actually designed for couples. Clue provides you with the information you need to understand and monitor your monthly cycle. This information is useful when discussing about family planning, infertility, female hormones and sex. The goal is to encourage couples to be more comfortable and open talking about these subjects. In addition to tracking your cycle, it also keeps tabs on your food cravings, mood, energy and PMS symptoms, if any. At the end of each month, it gives you a monthly report so you can easily monitor trends in your menstrual cycle. You may also link this app with your fitbit which make it extra convenient for you learn where exactly you are in your cycle.
