How often do you wear your Leaf? What purposes do you wear it for? Here are four amazing benefits and reasons why you should wear it all the time, and not just while exercising.
1. Gives you insight
How many hours do you sleep at night? How active do you think you are? When is your period due next? You might be surprised to learn that most people perceive very different values than what they are in reality. Arguably, the single greatest value of wearing the Leaf health tracker is that it gives you the insight you didn’t realize you were missing. How can we improve things if we don’t know what needs improving? By learning about your body, you empower yourself to make changes that are long lasting and beneficial to your well-being.
2. Motivates you
Nothing motivates us more than progress. The value of those ’before vs after’ pics go beyond keeping a record. They let us visually see what the mind sometimes forgets and keeps us going when in doubt. It works the same way with your step tracking and active minutes. Seeing your daily progress in the Leaf app gives you that push to go a little further and the motivational messages are a great little pep talk. Who doesn’t love the occasional pat on the back?
3. Sets the bar
Walking 10.000 steps a day can seem impossible with the obligations of daily life. But did you know, more often than not, getting in some active minutes is easier than it might initially seem. Many people report surprise at learning how many steps they have actually made and how easily it came to them. Sometimes we just don’t realize our own strength. Tracking your activity with Leaf sets your very own bench mark and taking it up the extra notch starts to look like a piece of cake. Mmmm cake. Watch your personal goals increase in no time.
4. Helps with the math
Many women report getting a health tracker to help them with weight loss. You may have heard of the simple breakdown “weight loss = calories consumed < calories spent.” It’s a little more complex than that (as not all calories are the same), but by keeping a food journal and tracking your activity with Leaf, you can get a simple overview of your daily caloric expenditure. Armed with that information you can make smarter food choice and progress to a more balanced lifestyle. Healthy is happy.
