It’s hard to stay healthy during the holidays — here’s how tech can help

"Sticking to your wellness routines during the holidays can be tough, especially when you’re busy with family or attending social events.

But it is possible to follow healthy habits that you’ve built for yourself, said fitness expert Oonagh Duncan, author of wellness book Healthy as F***. 

She told hosts on Global News’ The Morning Show that the first aspect to be mindful of is how often you’re using your technology. Canadian adults spend about 3.6 hours in front of screens per day, according to Statistics Canada. 

Before finding apps to help you follow a routine, understand what you’re using the apps for and whether they are truly benefiting you, said Duncan.

“You have to have appropriate boundaries,” she said. “You have to make sure that you are using your apps, and their not using you.”

Boundaries that work for Duncan include one hour of screen-free time every day, along with one day that’s screen-free per week."
