Why We Love Health Tracking apps

Tuesday, November 14, 2017 | By JP Emerald Coast

Remember pedometers? Perhaps the OG heath trackers—they started simple. Take more steps and burn more calories. The step tracker world has evolved a lot since then. Trends in wearable fitness tech and health tracking apps are continuously popping up to keep people accountable to workouts. Sleep and nutrition tracking apps are an emerging market as well. At JourneyPure, we have developed our own health & sobriety tracking app, JourneyPure Coaching, taking it a step further (no pun intended), with personalized coaching!

It seems that healthy living is becoming increasingly trendy. Athleisure (a fancy word for workout clothes as fashion) touts a U.S. market size of $44 billion dollars. In 2016, the number of worldwide connected wearables, tracking everything from steps, sleep, sobriety, heart rate and more, amounted to $325 million. The benefits of health becoming increasingly trendy are obvious. And the trend doesn’t seem to be slowing down, with wearable health tech expected to leap to $929 million by 2021.

Why are health apps becoming so popular?

Apps are making it easier than ever to log daily activities that help you reach your goals. In a recent survey, 72 percent of respondents felt they were able to track progress on the go, anywhere, with mobile app technology. Only five percent felt mobile app health tracking provided no benefits whatsoever. That means 95% see it as a powerful tool!

Besides ease of use, the apps are helping us to develop healthy habits for life. You’ve heard the expression that it takes 21 days to form a habit? What science is teaching us is that it’s all about repetition, routine, and habit loops when it comes to building healthy habits that last a lifetime. And, with the added bonus of an actual coach, our JourneyPure Coaching app offers clients real support and encouragement beyond automated notifications.

JourneyPure Coaching is the Best Health & Sobriety Tracking App to Get Healthy and Stay Healthy

We have developed our JourneyPure Coaching app to be an innovative program that goes beyond just tech and adds a personal touch. Each of our patients is provided with a personal recovery coach, and they have the option to sync their app data with their coach.  The coach and app provide a modern, individualized program of recovery that is available for Apple or Android. All JourneyPure clients get a minimum of one year with the recovery coach and app completely free.

JourneyPure Coaching promises to dramatically increase your chances for long term sobriety success. And because we realize healthy living is more than monitoring recovery from addiction, we prioritize recovery while combining it with the three “pillars of health”—sleep, nutrition, and exercise. JourneyPure Coaching’s goal in this approach is to help our clients achieve total wellness for life. 

Could JourneyPure Coaching Be Right For You?

You don’t have to be at someone else’s version of “rock bottom” to seek help. If you feel alcohol or substances are preventing you from achieving your goals or living the life of wellness you see for yourself, we’d love to help. Give us a call at (844) 849-7957, and let’s talk about JourneyPure as an option in your quest for clean, sober healthy living.
