Life After Cancer: How the iPhone Helped Me Achieve a Healthier Lifestyle

I’ve had this arti­cle from Fed­eri­co Vitic­ci in my Instapa­per queue for along time and final­ly got a chance to read it over the week­end. Despite it’s age I want­ed to share it just in case any­one else is like me and has had it saved to read for a long time.

First up, kudos to Fred­eri­co for mak­ing the changes to his life he has and not slip­ping back into old habits. Sec­ond, the idea of using my iPhone to track ele­ments of my life has always con­nect­ed with me (I like stats!). Sev­er­al times I’ve tried it with MyFit­ness­Pal and Sleep Cycle but they’ve nev­er stuck for some rea­son, but see­ing the moti­va­tion behind Frederico’s meth­ods has struck a chord with me. I’m not recov­er­ing from a severe phys­i­cal ill­ness but I am recov­er­ing from a men­tal one and there’s def­i­nite­ly a con­nec­tion between my men­tal well being and how I feel in my body. Pos­i­tive atti­tudes in one area of my life fil­ter through into oth­er areas and it’s with this in mind that I’ve decid­ed to have anoth­er go at putting that Health app to good use. My thanks to Fred­eri­co for high­light­ing some apps I’d nev­er come across that are much more pleas­ant to use than ones I’ve tried pre­vi­ous­ly.
Here’s to anoth­er attempt at track­ing some stats about my life and to liv­ing more health­ily.
