No more excuses! Apps and tech to help you build an exercise habit

A roundup of what I’ve been writing about this month

Have you tried using apps to help improve your well-being? Having recently marked my first year of writing for MUO as a wellness writer, I have certainly sampled the great and the not-so-good examples.

This month I uncovered one of the very best examples of a ground-breaking fitness app. It comes from Olympic legend Dame Jess Ennis-Hill and her team, and it’s called Jennis. The idea of harnessing hormonal health and devising workout strategies to suit your body at each stage of your menstrual cycle sounds as though it should have been devised decades ago. But now it’s here, I can’t recommend it highly enough.

I wrote about the Jennis app for MUO, and also included it in this round-up of the best fitness and well-being apps designed by women.

Another ground-breaking app is Breathonics, which I explored this month and received some welcome feedback from the company CEO.

For the most part, I’ve been writing about how to find motivation to exercise when it feels easier to just watch another episode of Succession instead. So I’ve explored different ways to boost your flagging workout motivation, and the best YouTube channels to find short workouts. There is lots of great tech to help you overcome barriers to physical activity.

Although I didn’t write about it, my own exercise regime this month has been powered by watching season 3 of Ted Lasso. Whatever will we do without Ted’s kind wisdom when the series ends?

Exploring Apple Music Classical further revealed a neat trick; I wrote about how to download music from Apple Music Classical.

Elsewhere, I’ve been working for an education client and starting out on the final term of my 12-month creative writing course. And trying not to get over-excited about the imminent trip to Wembley for the play-off final, where my team Coventry City face Luton Town. We’re 90 minutes away from a return to the Premier League! Yes, I’m daring to dream…
