Living off the grid is no longer an option for many of us who rely on the latest electronic gadget to keep track of everything we do. We can’t put our smart phones or computers down without getting an update on the latest changes for our electronic systems.
But what most of us don’t realize is that we have come a long way in how we process information and how to use what twenty-first-century technology gives us to promote good health and well-being.
Why is there an APP for your period?
In the old days, a woman’s menstrual cycle was an estimated guess. We stuck pads or tampons in our purse never knowing if our period was coming while we’re at the beach, in a restaurant or on a date. Those surprise visits are long gone… fast-forward to today with cell phone APPS that help track your periods for you! This amazing advancement could also be a great tool for those young women who are starting on their journey to womanhood and want to be informed and prepared.
