How Technology Supports a Healthy and Fulfilling Life

What is the secret to a happy, healthy and rewarding life? Countless articles have been written, studies conducted, and millions of dollars have been spent in search of an answer to this essential question. As undergraduates, many students find themselves dealing with the stress of managing work and school while maintaining an active social life. Add to that worrying about paying off student loans and finding a job/career after graduation, and it is no wonder students feel pressured.

ASU students reported the following items as having a high or very high effect on their stress level within the last school year1:

  • 36.6% academic responsibilities
  • 27.3% being overcommitted
  • 21.2% career-related issues
  • 20.4% financial concerns
  • 17.6% personal emotional issues

The key to leading a healthier, more fulfilling life is to start developing the skills to cope with life’s challenges before graduation and make them lifelong habits. Fortunately, ASU has a wealth of resources and information available to students.

We have reviewed a variety of resources that can help us maintain a healthy, active lifestyle. Unfortunately, when the pressures of juggling work and school start mounting, healthy habits often go by the wayside.

Fortunately, technology has come to the rescue with a variety of solutions to help us support a healthy lifestyle. Some of these solutions are in the form of wearable technology like the FitBit (Links to an external site.). Others are more modest, cost-effective apps to download to your smartphone. Some of these tools harness the power of social media to connect you to a community of individuals with similar fitness goals for additional support.

Think about your Wellness Score and wellness goal you would like to work on for the coming year. Search the Apps in the iTunes Store (Links to an external site.) or the Android Market (Links to an external site.) for an app that you think would help you to maintain your wellness goals. Describe the app, what it does, how much it costs, and why you think it would be helpful. If you actually download and try out the app, let us know about your experience using it. Would you recommend the app to your classmates?

If you do not have a smartphone, or not into apps, look for a web site or wellness blog to review instead. Provide the same type of information as for the apps above regarding the site’s usefulness and recommendations for bookmarking.
