Watch Your Neck App Helps You Avoid Text Neck

image

With over 2.19 trillion text messages sent annually, there’s a little known condition that is plaguing smartphone users known as "text neck." The injury involves stiffness in your neck and shoulders and typically is caused by excessive smartphone usage.

A 2011 study published in the International Journal of Occupational Safety and Ergonomics found that 53 percent of mobile phone users suffer numbness or neck aches. Another study led by Erik Peper of San Francisco State University showed that 84 percent of subjects reported some hand and neck pain during texting. Moreover subjects also displayed other signs of tension, like holding their breath and increased heart rates.

W/Me by Phyode ($169.99) 

3 out of 5 stars

W/Me by Phyode is another wristband, like Fitbit Flex and Up by Jawbone, that monitors your health. What sets W/Me apart, is its ability to inform you of your mood and your body's vitality level. This fact alone was enough to inspire me to try out W/Me, but it also has some other really cool features. I received a free evaluation unit from Phyode, the company that produces W/Me.

Introducing Worry Watch - a journal app to track anxiety

Introducing Worry Watch - a journal app to track anxiety

 

Cupertino, California - November 13, 2013
Often we worry and get anxious about everyday things. Later we realize most of those worries were unnecessary and some times irrational too. Yet we don't tend to remember these momentary realizations when we worry again next time.

Worry Watch for iOS, is a unique journal app designed to log and track every day worries and anxieties visually. It is built on the foundations of cognitive science where awareness of one's thoughts has a profound effect on one's emotions and behaviors.
