Maintaining excellent health used to mean visiting the doctor regularly, exercising when you could, trying to remember to eat right, and hoping your general level of wellness stayed on track. Now, in the midst of a technological and marketing revolution in the healthcare industry, convenience has taken over. You no longer have to drive to your doctor’s office for a checkup, nor do you need to wait for those checkups to find out what your vital signs are. And eating right? You don’t even have to shop for groceries or prepare your own meals if you don’t want to. Welcome to the 2020’s, the decade of convenient health and wellness. What are some of the top ways that people are combining convenience and wellness? Here are a few that you may have not yet heard about.
Use Wearable Fitness Devices
You don’t need to spend a fortune on a few of the most essential wearables. In healthcare jargon, those products are the ones that usually go on your wrist and give readouts of blood pressure, heart rate, calories burned in an activity, and miles walked. If you ever wanted to know where you stand in terms of vital signs, wearables are the way to go.
Order MMJ To Your Door
If you live in one of the 33 states where either medical or recreational cannabis is now legal, you’re in luck. You can use a marijuana subscription service to get cannabis for less than if you purchased it from a local dispensary. These organizations are one of the newer wellness-related services to pop up in the last few years. They’re catching on with consumers not only because of the deep discounts but also the convenience factor. Why waste a car trip to a dispensary that might be 10 or more miles from your home? And why bother letting everyone know what you’re buying when you walk into the store. So, there’s an anonymity aspect that also appeals to subscribers.
Sign Up for Telehealth
After the recent viral pandemic, millions of people learned the simplicity and convenience of telehealth. Using nothing more than a simple video/audio app on their computers, they discovered that a 30-minute session with the doctor means never having to drive to an office, find parking, sit in a waiting room, or be around other patients who might be carrying contagious illnesses. Telehealth is taking off and the COVID scare did a lot to popularize it.
Use Meal Delivery Services
Want to make your daily intake of vitamins and minerals a simple task? Opt for a home delivery meal service. Most of these U.S. based companies began in California but have now sprung up in most medium and large cities. They’re perfect if you’re on a special diet and don’t want to cook or go grocery shopping. Prefer vegan, vegetarian, diabetic-friendly, low-carb, or gluten-free meals? They’re got you covered. Most bring three days’ worth of meals at a time so you can conveniently store them in your fridge for later. Another big change is that costs have come down, which means convenient, nutritious eating is now quite affordable. The part about not shopping or cooking is worth its weight in gold, according to people who use meal delivery regularly.
