    Apps for mind, body, and soul

    Meet all of your needs from your phone

    Mind, body, and soul need to be regularly fed in order to feel like a complete person. Most of us now live and die by our phones, so you can take care of all of your needs with your device.

    Here are my recommendations to feed your mind, body, and soul.

    Mind: Lumosity

    Doing a 10-minute mental work out can't hurt. I haven't cared enough to see how conclusive any of the studies are regarding the science behind Lumosity, but I can feel the difference. This app also a replacement for the unhealthy, time wasting, video games I gave up a few years ago. It gives me a chance to get my competitive fix on, pitting me against brains in my age group. The app also provides a bit of a morale booster as well because your improvement is easily seen via the progress charts.

    Body: 7-Minute Workout

    There are a few secrets to my six-pack. I put the right amount of good things into my body, and I keep fit with simple calisthenics. The key is having a virtual personal trainer helping you out. For those of you who spend an hour at the gym, you are probably wasting a lot of time. Go hard for seven minutes with this app, and I bet you will find it comparable to the hour you spend in the gym.

    Soul: Mindfulness

    For about a year, I have been meditating on a consistent basis. As a newbie, I still enjoy the guided meditations found in the Mindfulness app. It keeps track of how much meditation I have done, and it provides me with reminders to do it. For me, meditation helps keep chaos at bay and my soul at ease.

    Bonus: Meet all three with Tinder

    Tinder is a people-connecting app that can possibly help with all three. Mind, body, and soul might be taken care of if you find that special someone. Tinder connects you with locals with a mutual interest in setting up a meeting. This app is great if you’re travelling and don't want to eat alone. Hop on Tinder and find a dinner date!
