Why Taking a Holistic Approach to Weight Loss and Wellness Makes Such a Big Difference — and the Go-To App to Try
Committing to a healthier lifestyle doesn't just revolve around eating better — your sleep, physical activity, and mental health can all have a huge impact on your overall well-being.
The same goes for weight loss: if your goal is losing a few pounds in a healthy way, you need to take a look at your overall daily routine — not just how much you're exercising or what you're eating. That's why the improved WW app takes a holistic approach to wellness by giving you all the tools you need to build a healthier lifestyle overall.
It all comes down to four key pillars: a healthy diet, physical activity, quality sleep, and a positive outlook. Keep reading for a sneak peek into how the WW app makes it easier to create your healthiest and happiest life — and why you might want to consider a membership today.
Easy Meal Planning
Creating a weekly meal plan — and sticking to it — has never been easier. The WW app has a new meal planning tool that makes it super simple with a database of more than 9,000 recipes, or you can opt for one of WW's premade weekly meal plans. Plus, once you've planned a few meals, the app will learn your preferences and suggest recipes based on your favorite meals and eating patterns.
The WW app also helps you focus on moving more with FitPoints®. Every time you do something active — whether that's gardening in the backyard or going for a walk — you earn FitPoints. It even syncs with your phone or activity tracker! The app also includes a suite of on-demand workout videos from FitOn® and guided audio fitness instruction from Aaptiv®. You can try everything from a five-minute stretching routine to a gratitude walk to a heart-pumping interval workout with a few taps. It doesn't get much easier than that.
When you're not getting enough rest, it's tough to stay committed to a healthy lifestyle all day long. Tracking your sleep in the WW app helps you become more aware of your sleep patterns so you can focus on getting better shut-eye and feeling your best. You can even create a custom bedtime routine with a relaxing meditation or stretches to help you wind down.
Of course, having the right mindset can also play a big role in sticking to a healthy routine. That's why the WW app also offers guided meditations from Headspace® and five-minute audio coaching sessions from WW's Director of Behavior Change. Recordings focus on everything from self-doubt to mindful eating to stress-reduction techniques, so there's something for every mood. You'd be amazed by how much of a difference it can make — join WW today to try it out for yourself!
