Finding time to improve your health can be tricky with our current "always on the go" lifestyles. You may have even thought to yourself, "Shouldn't there be an easy way to be healthy?". Well, your in luck because today we're breaking down 7 ways you can improve your health with Amazon, making what once was a huge task, as easy as asking Alexa to play some music.
1. No More Worrying About Going To The Gym
Forget the gym, all you need is your television or smartphone to get your fitness on. If you thought two-day shipping is the highlight of subscribing to Amazon Prime, you’re going be surprised with its other feature you probably weren't aware of.
When you are subscribed to Amazon Prime, you have access to fitness videos you can use anywhere you happen to be. Prime has everything from yoga to strength training to cardio. And you can stream them all on-demand at the comfort of your home.
Can you believe that? We were surprised when we discovered this little benefit of Prime. You can even put together your own workout sequence so you can leverage all the power of a professional trainer at a fraction of the cost.
2. Alexa can keep you fit and healthy
Amazon Alexa has taken the world by storm. It will never complain about the work, and it has tens of thousands of skills available for download. But what a lot of users don’t realize is, some of virtual assistant Alexa’s most powerful capabilities are those that improve both physical and mental health. Some of the best health and fitness skills available for download include Breathe, Yoga Trainer and 7-minute workout.
Simply ask Alexa to start your work-out and you're off. You can even ask her to set a reminder for you and automate the entire process - giving you the motivation and drive you need to make sure you're constantly progressing towards your health goals.
3. Basic Care, Amazon’s recently launched line of OTC products
Did you know that Amazon already launched its own line of OTC or over-the-counter products? Today, you can already purchase basic medicines such as Mucinex, Advil, and more straight from Amazon.
Now you can get all of your ache and pains taken care of without even leaving the home - and once Amazon gets that drone delivery system figured out, you could find relief from your symptoms in a matter of minutes.
4. Upgrade your diet with Amazon’s long list of healthy foods and snacks
