Sleep allows your body to recharge and repair. Getting enough sleep can help you stay alert throughout the day, manage your stress and improve your immunity.

Food Intake Trackers
One of the most exciting new technologies, food trackers allow people to track the exact nutritional value of what they eat and drink each day. Smartphone apps that can identify your food using a picture or put you in close contact with a nutritionist can help you plan and control you’re eating habits in a healthy manner. Additionally, new “smart cups” can actually identify the beverage inside of them and track your caloric and sugar intake during the day to help you maintain optimal hydration levels.
