Apple Watch Goes With The Flow To Help Women Track Their Periods, And It's About Time

Yep, my watch will let me know when "Aunt Flo" is on her way.


Tracking your period is about to become easier thanks to Apple's new watchOS, which was announced earlier this week. If you're a female who is asking every woman in the restroom for a tampon because you didn't know you were about to start, you no longer have to worry.

The app will not only track when your period is coming but the flow as well. You enter how heavy or how light it was. You can enter any abnormal symptoms, too.

While you might find this a little creepy, I'm loving the idea! I know I am super forgetful and when I go to the gyno and she asks about my last cycle, I often am left staring in confusion because I honestly don't know.

This isn't gonna just help you with the gyno, but help you monitor your cycles. This is going to help you figure out your heavy days, your worst day, and what symptoms you get on your period. This will help your gyno in diagnosing conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome or endometriosis.

The will also be helpful for family planning. Your watch will inform you of the days you're likely to be ovulating to make sure you're trying during those days. The update is everything women need.

As a woman who needs a little reminder every once in a while, I love what I've seen of watchOS so far and I'm excited to get my hands on it when it's released this fall.

Thank you, Apple, for looking out for women who need a little help keeping up with when a visitor will be arriving.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
