Health & Wellness

Sometimes it can feel like app developers are reading your mind. A glance at the App Store reveals a wealth of mobile tools created to tackle wellness goals. It’s clear the smartphone can be a positive force to help you tap and swipe your way toward a more healthier — or at least sweatier — you. Let’s start downloading.

 

7 Minute Workout Challenge

With 12 moves broken into 30-second high-intensity interval exercises that range from jumping jacks to planks, this app gives you a full-body workout in no time. No equipment required. Afterward, feel free to enjoy a cocktail by the pool — you’ve earned it.

 

MINDBODY Connect
This app is the best to help you find a physical place to locate yoga classes, day spas and meditation centers within your current vicinity (thanks Google maps!). It also lets you book and pay right from your phone to easily navigate your way to nirvana.

 

GoodFoodNearYou

GoodFoodNearYou lets you search through local restaurants based on your location to get healthy food options. It comes complete with a list of low-calorie meals from their menus.

 

Charity Miles
Just by lacing up your sneakers and heading outside, this app allows you to earn money for charities like Stand Up To Cancer or the ASPCA. The app tracks your distance and then tallies what you’ve earned.

Your Home Away From Home

Experience a big-city hotel stay that doesn’t feel like your typical urban visit at Chicago’s Claridge House, nestled in the sought-after Gold Coast neighborhood. The hotel’s sophisticated décor and serene residential ambience foster the atmosphere of an oasis amid the hustle and bustle of a busy metropolis.

Stay Cozy with These Neck Pillows and Blankets

Traveling is hardly comfortable because of plane seats. Airplane seats also have poor neck support and headrests and can be cold. We found two-in-one pillow and blankets that may help make travelers' journeys more comfortable.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
