Here at Healing Boxes we’ve been testing and researching and we’ve rounded up our favourite apps for chronic illness, to help people in pain and their caregivers.

Part 1 of the app round up is here. Part 3 of the app round up is here.

Check out our list and let us know your favourites on Twitter.

Energy Saving

Stylebook

Stylebook

Stylebook is a sensationally energy-saving app. Once you have photographed all your clothes – a process that’s much quicker than I imagined, it’s then easy to plan outfits without rummaging through drawers and wardrobes.

If you want someone to bring you clothes into hospital then you can show them exactly what you want on the app – your whole wardrobe is in your phone!

Energy saving for style, plus it’s pretty close to Cher’s wardrobe program from Clueless (no mis-match facility yet!)

30/30

30/30

A task management app. It’s great for managing time on distracting devices. If as you get tired you get less conscious of boundaries and energy levels, this apps gets you to check in.

Yes! Daily

Yes! Daily

Here at Healing Boxes, we love Sarah Von Bargen’s YesandYes.org and so we adore the app. WE ALL NEED THE OCCASIONAL REMINDER TO SAY “YES” – to big things like forgiveness, intention, or moments of silence and to small things like a new cocktail, bad karaoke, or snail mail.

‘Yes! Daily – A Year In Yes’ sends you sweet, daily reminders of something you can say “yes” to today.
Sometimes meaningful, sometimes awesomely frivolous, each reminder will add a teeny, tiny bit of positivity to your day + phone.

Save the reminders to your phone, share them on Facebook and Twitter, or text them to your friends when they could use a bit of encouragement or a gentle nudge in the direction of “yes.”
