    Pillow App Review

    The pillow app is my new favorite health app that I have started using. Like the old saying goes there is no substitute for a good nights sleep. Think about it when you have a bad nights sleep you suffer the entire next day. Just because you get a good nights sleep does not always mean its a good night sleep. There are 4 stages of sleep Awake Light Sleep Deep Sleep Rem Sleep Each one of these stages is important in its own way and can be monitored by the Pillow App. The pillow app works as follows you open the app right before you are about to fall asleep and hit start. Then when you wake up you hit the end button and that lets the app know when you woke up. The interesting thing is the data the app collects while you are sleeping. The Pillow app collects a lot of data while you are sleeping using the speaker of your phone. I would like to point out that their Apple watch app is great but since I charge my watch at night I don’t use it on the watch. I have tried it and it works great. The Pillow app records your Time In Bed and your Time Asleep. The breaks that time down by the stages of sleep then uses the time sleeping and the stages of sleep to determine the quality of your sleep that night. The pillow app then later in the day will ask you about your mood to help determine if this was enough sleep for you. If you are wearing you Apple Watch the Pillow app with record your heart rate while you sleep and for a one time fee of $4.99 will let you listen to some of the...
  • Technological innovations have revolutionized almost all areas of life, and training or exercising to achieve fitness is no exception. Technology has permeated the fitness industry in a big way, as can be seen through wearable technologies, fitness mobile apps, online tutorials, and training equipment. Below are some of the hottest training technologies that you cannot ignore: Fitness apps With mobile devices becoming so common and widespread, developers across the globe have developed apps that help people take control of their workouts and nutritional program. The apps have also done away with the need to have personal trainers to guide the trainees. Some of the apps, like Yoga studio, Runkeeper, and Strava, guide users, especially in activities where technique and guidance are necessary. What renders apps so popular is their ease of access and their user-friendliness. Moreover, the apps come with video content and tutorials. They also have features that monitor your fitness or that can be used as a diary. Speaking of fitness apps and their great contribution to fitness, it is crucial to point out that you can improve your workout results and achieve your goals faster by including steroids in your routine. You should ensure you purchase steroids from reliable vendors, which you can find on the Steroidsfax website in order to sort out your steroid needs. Wearable technologies Fitness enthusiasts often want to keep tabs on their progress and activity levels. This need has made wearable gadgets embedded with sensors become more popular. For example, the wristband helps to determine your heart rate and activity level, and it gathers crucial information about the user’s improvement. Other gadgets help to encourage users to attain their fitness targets, for instance Pavlok, which produces a mild shock to influence behavioral activity, thus preventing negative tendencies and motivating users to achieve...
  • Dental, surgical, and radiological offices are vastly different operations. From equipment needs to uniquely skilled staffing considerations, the healthcare landscape is an ocean of individual nuances and quirks that may be hard to identify from the patient’s chair. Even though Americans make nearly one billion physician’s visits year after year, it can be hard to take note of some of the more subtle things that go on in the office. For instance, we often take it for granted that our doctors see an average of 19 patients per day. Each patient is but one of a score, and each file must be updated with appointment records, diagnoses, prescription information, follow-up appointments, and payment data — and that’s just the beginning. While it may be hard for your regulars to discern a high-efficiency office from an average one, it is incredibly easy to uncover lapses in professionalism: the most blatant being the calling system employed by your staff. If you aren’t using the most efficient healthcare call center software to operate your phone lines, you are leaving money, time, and energy on the table. Benefits of the cloud Today’s healthcare industry relies on two critical necessities: impenetrable data security and intuitive access to confidential information when contacting patients. These may seem to counteract each other, but if you remember years past when rows upon moveable rows of file shelves littered the back office, you know the struggle of keeping your records easily accessible and still secure from prying eyes. Calling operations among healthcare providers are increasingly moving to the cloud in order to deliver on both of these requirements. Cloud based systems provide a few advantages over traditional calling solutions. Primarily, they are easy to implement and cost less than a traditional calling setup. Your staff needs only to log into...

    EHS Programs When Utilized Right

    Back in the old days, the internet was one of the most awesome things ever discovered. Before its advent, interests for personal computers and cell phones were not so common. Now, almost everyone has it, for ordinary citizens to keep up with life and catch up with technology, and for businesses not just to keep up with competition but also to experience its benefits. Nothing justifies better than all the benefits business software can provide. Hence, over the years, we have seen a lot of businesses already unafraid to invest in various systems for a business, e.g. POS software, Accounting and Bookkeeping Software, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software, and of course, who can’t say yes to Environment, Health, and Safety (EHS) Software. The EHS of Today Environment, Health, and Safety or EHS is a general terminology that basically refers to the rules, laws, regulations, and programs required to be implemented in a workplace to support the law of protecting the health and safety not just of every employee but also the public. It also covers the ABCs of environmental hazard reduction and management. Companies nowadays make use of different platforms to better implement EHS Programs and address EHS concerns: The Use of BBS Different methods have been introduced to better implement every aspect of EHS. One of these is behavioural safety – a method designed to change safety behaviour of all employees with a vision of having less to zero injuries or incidents going down in a company. Records show that averagely, businesses that practiced BBS or behavioural-based safety for one year attained a better rate in terms of average injury counts, specifically realizing a decrease of 29%. It was projected, consequently, that after five years of using BBS, the reduction rate would likely reduce by 72 per cent, and...

    Health Hacking – Low Carbing

    I wrote a while back about my recent health hacking and my weight loss goal I have again recently changed the way I am doing things again to accommodate my lifestyle. So as I have mentioned in past articles I have a very busy life between my business and family life. I at times take on to much and with everything it gets pretty crazy at times. My life has recently gotten busier as I have been dealing with both my family, business and some additional responsibility. I needed to change my health habits to accommodate my lifestyle. To start with I upgraded from a Fitbit Charge 2 to an Apple Watch. I did this because of easy ability and functionality with my iPhone. You can read all about it in my Apple Watch Series 4 review. As far as health goes I have started low carbing and carb-cutting and have gotten much more serious about doing this recently. Again notice I said carb cutting and low carbing, not no carb free. I tried to go carb free and I just can’t stomach the gluten free, soy or rice based kinds of pasta. I basically have cut out white flour as a way to cut back on the carbs. This in its self has been hard, but doable with some effort. I noticed when I did carb free after a few days I got annoyed and thought about quitting my diet. The next thing I did was started eating a grilled chicken salad for lunch to cut back on my carb intake. I am a big sandwich guy which is not a good habit as lunch meats are full of salts and fats plus the carbs from the bread are bad. I have started eating the spinach leaves as well...

    Fitbit And Health Hacking

    I figured it’s been a while since my last health update, so I figured I would just update everyone on my health. I recently upgraded to the Fitbit Charge 2 which was a major update from the Fitbit Flex 2. I have dropped weight from 287 to 264 since the fourth of July. I have made many life changes the first one has to do with the Fitbit itself like setting 2 goals a day one for 5000 steps the other for 10000 steps. I have set the Fitbit to remind me every hour to move a certain number of steps which for me can be an issue while I am at work. I have started messing with the Fitbit community competing in the work week hustle and the weekend warrior competitions. For me, I need that stuff to help push me to move and lose weight. I have made other changes not relevant to technology for starters I have started the 12 hour fast. While I am not a huge fan of fasting, it has been a major help. I usually eat breakfast around 8 and finish eating dinner around 7 or 8 at night. So, I adjust my 12 hour fast to accommodate this life change. I have made other changes to my diet. I first have given up junk food no more salami, cheese, pepperoni, chips, and cookies. Instead for snacks, I eat fruit grapes, apples, pineapples, grapefruit, and watermelon are my snakes of choice. Coffee! The Coffee! Those of you who know me I am a huge coffee drinker. Coffee is my beverage of choice decaffeinated or regular it’s my beverage to drink during the day. So how do I cut these calories down? I drink fat-free creamer or no fat creamer. I know cutting it...

    Role of Technology in Beating Addiction

    Technology has proven to be an aid in every aspect of everyday life. It can be seen used in virtually every industry, for almost every task from mundane to complicated, and it is also being integrated into many lines of work to create more efficient processes. We have come a long way since the dawn of technology, and our society has become sort of a cyborg in the way we handle everyday matters, almost always with the use of some form of technology. The health industry has benefited greatly from the inventive inventions offered in the technology markets which can be merged with traditional and modern medical fields providing less room for human error. Technology has proven successful in aiding the prevention, assessment, treatment, and recovery of the patients of those medical industries who harness its ability to integrate into medical processes and make them a bit easier and a lot safer. Even the world of Behavioral health has evolved with the assistance of technology. Technology is currently being used as a base for therapeutic tools which are used for affected the quality of therapy for addiction treatment and recovery support systems. Technology such as computers and smartphones have also been implemented to assist in supporting and housing data on patients. A study has been commenced that indicates that the use of technology in the therapeutic recovery program for addiction can not only assist in the patient’s recovery but also lead to them beating a crack addiction, alcohol addiction, opioid addiction, and other substance addictions while retaining sobriety. Technology implemented into recovery strategies for institutions who provide treatment and recovery options for addicts create opportunities for increasing the effectiveness of therapies and ease of recording and keeping records of patients during and after recovery processes are conducted. Technology systems are...
