That’s why I was delighted to partner with Jawbone to try out their new UP24 band – it was just what I needed to help me keep a focus on my daily levels of activity, exercise and diet. As the UP24 band syncs my movement and sleep patterns automatically via bluetooth with an app on my iPhone, it really does streamline the process of recording and remembering my activity on any given day. I recently had problems with my back due to too many hours spent working at a computer, so I am hoping that the vibration within the band that happens automatically if you have been inactive for too long will help remind me to take screen breaks. In addition, I’m hoping that I’ll be able to utilise the app to keep a closer track of what I am eating and how my diet is shaping up around my busy schedule. In the past eight months or so I’ve found it both rewarding and challenging as I explore and think more deeply about how to achieve my mission to live a make-you-smile style life. I know for sure that eating better and being more active is a huge part of this, so I’d love to hear of your own stories of leading a life that’s more respectful of your body? How do you stay motivated? Perhaps you have some great tips to share for exercise and diet? I’d love to hear them all! Have a great weekend, guys.
