Harness your iPhone for good, not procrastination! Our favourite wellness & productivity apps.

Because there's no escaping your smart phone, why not use it to enrich - rather than detract - from your existence? If you're keen on living mindfully, sustainably, productively, healthily & with superhuman levels of fitness - check out these excellent apps: our recommendations for the most helpful tools in town. 

 

If you want to shop with a conscience, use:  

Shop Ethical - This app gives you the environmental & social record of companies behind common brand names. If you're still shopping at the supermarket - or looking for new clothes & household goodies - this stellar app gives you the unbiased low-down on just how ethical these brands are. Prepare to be shocked (and sometimes disgusted. You've been warned!) 

 

Good Guide - The GoodGuide mobile app makes it fast and easy to find safe, healthy, green, and ethical products. You open the app in a store, take a photo of a product's bar code and instantly discover information about how green the product is. Gets our vote!

 

If you want to eat with a conscience, use:

Australia's Sustainable Seafood guide - It was developed in response to growing public concern about overfishing and its impact on our oceans and their wildlife. Designed to help you make informed seafood choices and play a part in swelling the tide for sustainable seafood in Australia.   

 

Slow food planet - Helps you discover the best slow-foodie hang-outs around the world. The most mindfully prepared local fare, wherever you're holidaying. More cultural & gustatory than specifically health inclined - we still think that the love that goes into source & preparation can be equally as important as Paleo-approved ingredients. A good one for travel.

 

 

 

If you want to exercise like a BEAST (outside of Enliven Fitness, that is): 

Tabata timer - Everyone needs intervals in their life. This app lets you clock on/clock off your effort & rest periods. Because it's primed for short bursts of intense exercise, this app is perfect for home or office use - to keep you active and engaged throughout the day. We love using this & feeling decidedly badass!  

 

Zombies, run! - OK. This is up there with the coolest apps we've ever seen. A completely revolutionary - and inordinately fun - way to workout. The premise? You're inside a virtual narrative where there are zombies. Zombies that lurch after you. The upshot? You have to bolt in the opposite direction, fast! It's part Playstation, part interval training, epic endurance & endlessly heroic. Will not disappoint! 

 

If you want to practice more mindfulness, meditation & gratitude, use: 

Headspace - Using proven meditation and mindfulness techniques, you learn how to train your mind for a healthier, happier, more enjoyable life. It's a gentle, accessible and fluff-free approach. Excellent for professionals who don't necessarily want to meditate in an overtly spiritual manner - rather, harness mindfulness to enhance focus, productivity and body awareness.

 

Gratitude - The sweetest way to make gratitude a daily habit. Log in & list 5 things you were grateful for on any given day. Simple, mindful & fodder for happiness. 

 

If you want more efficiency in your business or personal life, use:

Scanner Pro - Transforms your iPhone and iPad into portable scanners. How much time does THAT save?! It allows you to scan receipts, whiteboards, paper notes, or any multipage document. Scanned documents can then be emailed and printed, uploaded to Dropbox, Google Drive and Evernote, or simply saved on the iPhone/iPad. Efficiency plus.

 

Evernote - The best way to keep all your lists & brilliant ideas in one place. We use it to keep in touch with off-site colleagues - share article ideas, business plans, documents, to-dos. Keeps everything together. Couldn't live without it!

 

1Password - Ever feel like you have so many passwords that one day you're going to lock yourself of your own life? Be denied access to your bank account, email, website? Keep them all together! Better still, it's completely impenetrable. Safe as houses (with known pass-codes). Brilliant!

 

Pocket - There's a tsunami of quality content to read online...and so little time! Save all those intriguing articles for later. Don't ever lose a fascinating blog post or newspaper story again. Put them straight into your Pocket. Hurrah!

 

We hope you find this virtual toolkit as helpful as we do. Organic produce is imperative, but so is streamlining your existence! Be efficient AND well fed. It's what we're about!
