Life After Cancer: How the iPhone Helped Me Achieve a Healthier Lifestyle

Federico Viticci at MacStories:

Last year, I decided to regain control of my body, my life habits, and my health. I started tracking everything I could about my activities, my exercise routine, the food I ate, and the time I spent working with my iPad instead of walking, sleeping, or enjoying time with my family. Since then, I've made a decision to not let cancer and its consequences define me any longer.

I want to be healthier, I want to eat better, and I want to take the second chance I was given and make the most of it. What started as an experiment has become a new daily commitment to improve my lifestyle and focus.

And it wouldn't be possible without my iPhone.

An incredibly moving and inspiring piece by Federico on how he's using his iPhone to improve his health following his recovery from cancer.

It's stories like this that make it abundantly clear why technology is so important and beneficial to our lives. If you read one thing today, let this be it.
