Apple has shared five new videos on YouTube today that promote healthy and active lifestyle choices, emphasizing the importance of a regular sleeping pattern, proper nutrition, taking moments to calm your mind, and staying active. The fifth video explains how these healthy habits are all connected.
Apple Health - Sleep promotes the natural rhythm of going to bed at the same time and getting enough hours of sleep each night. Apple introduced a new Wake Alarm in the Clock app on iOS 10 that, when enabled, reminds you when it is time to sleep, tracks how many hours you slept, and provides detailed sleep analysis.
Apple Health - Nutrition is centered upon eating healthy foods, and being aware of how much food we eat. The video emphasizes the importance of eating more real foods than junk foods. Apple says nutrition is not about eating perfectly, but rather about making better food choices "one bite at a time."
Apple Health - Mindfulness explains how the human mind is not wired to be "always on," and encourages finding a few moments to take a few deep breathes to help eliminate day-to-day stresses.
Apple Health - Activity is centered upon "sitting less, moving more, and getting some exercise" by "squeezing in a minute here and a minute there." Apple says being active does not explicitly require going to the gym, but rather simply finding enjoyable activities that get you moving throughout the day.
Apple Health - Everything's Connected ties the first four videos together by explaining how small lifestyle changes can become healthy habits when you see how they connect. The video recaps the importance of four key areas that can improve your health: sleep, nutrition, activity, and mindfulness.
