A working woman’s job is never done. A career-focused woman is just that; her mind is often on the job and fulfilling her endless to do list. Often times in the quest to climb up the ladder of success, women forget to take care of themselves and their health and wellness ends up at the end of that long to do list.

This is where helpful apps and wearable technology comes in. The trend of wearable technology is growing and it gives a career-minded woman the chance to focus on their own health and wellness in a very hands-on way. There’s three basic needs that will help you to be a boss–better sleep, more physical activity and a happier mood.

Melissa Thompson, CEO of TalkSession–an online counseling company–offers a few tips to get moving, get some rest and get a fix of happiness, all through seamless technology and increased awareness.

Check out the apps here:


Sitting at your desk all day isn’t as relaxing as it sounds. After eight hours a day of work time, your body craves physical activity.

Shine is the elegant activity tracker that inspires you to live an active life. Wear Shine anywhere on your body with comfort and style. Shine’s long-lasting battery and automatic wireless syncing mean you’ll spend less time plugging in and more time moving. Shine helps you to create and set goals, monitors your steps, displays the highlights of your days, weeks and milestones.

This app requires a Misfit Shine and an iPhone 4S or newer. Get your own Misfit Shine HERE!


Sleep yields positive effects on memory, health and productivity, leading to physical and mental restoration. Getting a good night of sleep is easier said than done when you’re a busy businesswoman. Get the sleep you deserve with The Sleep Cycle.

The Sleep Cycle app is an alarm clock that uses your phone’s accelerometer to monitor movement and determine your sleep phase. The app will wake a person within a preset window, triggered by coming out of a “deep sleep” into a more awake state, improving one’s probability of waking up on the right side of the bed. The app is also smart enough to rhetorically ask, “Short night or nap?”


Happier people are healthier and more productive, seriously. How often do you love to share your good news on social media? Imagine if there was one place for you to share and receive good news and uplifting messages ONLY. Well, there is!

Happier is a fun social gratitude journal combined with a positive community! Be inspired to keep track of the small happy moments in your day and feel awesome when they help someone smile. Happier is a platform not for humblebrags, but for the little moments that bring us joy. An entry from the current feed: “The scent of a harvest berry candle and soft music on a cool autumn night.” Doesn’t that bring a smile to your face?

Research shows people who focus on finding a few positive things about their day are happier, healthier, and less stressed. Happier encourages you to find that moment.
