For a $5.99 flat fee, you can get pesticide-free avocados, sprouted whole grain bread and chili flakes at your door in time for a delicious snack of avocado toast. Or, you know, a case of thinkThin bars. Take that mile-long line.

This Meditation App Like everything else, serenity is now just a tap away. Our latest favorite is Buddhify. Just choose a color-coded tab that corresponds with what you’re doing right now--waking up, traveling and eating are among 14 choices--and listen as a soothing voice guides you into a state of blissful well-being. Sigh.

House of Cards is back so Frank may be joining you.

That’s why you should sign up for BodBot, an app that functions like a personal trainer so you have a coach with you anytime, no matter how your schedule shifts. Plus, it adapts to your personal goals and workout routines (in case you get sick of 28 back squats in a row).
