Think you’re using the most of Alexa?
You’re probably asking her to switch off the lights. Or check your flight details. But are you using Alexa to keep your health in check too?
Yes, Alexa possesses tons of health-related skills that shape your overall well-being, keep your calm, and protect your health. Here are some of these helpful skills.
1. Alexa can help you start your day on a positive note
Have a busy day ahead?
The Stop, Breathe & Think skill Alexa skill helps you relax with its guided meditations that lessen the stress in your daily life. Each meditation of the day lasts for between 3 to 10 minutes long and if you don’t like the current meditation, you can skip to the next one.
Whereas, the My Morning skill gives you things to do each morning to start your day right. It gives you affirmative sentences, encourages meditations, helps you set priorities, and even suggest a couple of stretching exercises.
2. Alexa can guide you to eat healthily
Living a healthy life is not easy. You need constant reminders to keep your head on your health goals.
With Alexa’s Health Tips, you can easily listen to interesting and easily applicable tips from exercising to your daily nutrition. If you’re on guard about your eating habits, you can easily ask Alexa’s Calorie Count skill to tell you the calorie count of certain food, “Alexa, ask Calorie Count about pizza”.
3. Alexa can tell you how to use a certain drug
If you aren’t sure about, say, the dosage of common drugs, you can tap the help of MyPharmacist. You can ask it how to take Motrin, for example.
4. Alexa can answer your medical questions
For simple health questions, Alexa can help you find answers through its DexMD Skill.
Don’t know what to do with a burn? Why does your knee hurt after running? Want to know how to treat your acid reflux? Or just want to ask what gluten is? Feel free to ask Alexa. She knows the answer.
Of course, like the MyPHarmacist, these skills are just for informational and educational purposes only. It is still best to consult your doctor.
