Adequate sleep is also a part of a healthy lifestyle. In fact, adults 18 to 64 years old need at least seven to nine hours of sleep each day. Constantly tired in the morning, but can’t figure out why? This app could help you. Sleep Talk monitors your sleep and tracks any noise you make. Find out if you snore or talk in your sleep. Knowing your sleep quality also can help your doctor determine if you have health concerns such as sleep apnea.
The road to a healthy lifestyle is right at your fingertips. Just remember, whatever fitness app you choose, make sure it fits with your long-term health goals.
