As we’ve mentioned in the past, we strongly believe that in order to achieve our life goals, be nice to people, and maintain this blog, a healthy lifestyle must be maintained. As a part of that approach we have decided to incorporate the UP24 wristbands by Jawbone into our daily lives to help encourage that awareness. Staying healthy by regulating eating habits, maintaining fitness levels, and sleep cycles are basic human needs and keys to the beginning of happiness. We are excited to share that over the next few months we will be wearing these wristbands and tracking several things we’d like to become more aware of in our own lives: including our sleep cycles, daily food intake, steps per day, physical fitness, and moods.
The thing we love about these bands is that they keep you accountable by allowing you to set goals for yourself on the app (available for download on your smartphone). Once you have set these goals, you can then track them and see what improvements you can make to achieve these. You can even sync other apps along with the UP24 app to see how other daily activities affect your health. We have always enjoyed setting goals for ourselves when it comes to fitness, so we are excited to set fitness, running, and cycling goals. On another note, we are hoping to start getting more sleep and can’t wait to see how these UP24’s help encourage us to go to bed earlier! We plan to share more updates here and on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter as we track our progress.
