Have you ever noticed the moment you start to have an unhealthy relationship with someone or SOMETHING in your life? Well, over the spring of 2022, I made the decision to break up with my Apple Watch (or maybe still just taking a break like Ross & Rachel on Friends (iykyk)). I had worn it every single day for the last two years and it was time to reevaluate what it was actually doing for me.
But in all seriousness, this topic is very important because we live in a world where we have to have the next best thing OR we need to have validation for everything we do. What I mean by that is if I were to hit 10,000 steps on my watch, I would be recognized for it with a bunch of fireworks INSTEAD of recognizing the fireworks I would feel within myself by simply moving my body.
Here are five signs that it may be time for you to take a break from your fitness tracker:
You have anxious feelings about looking at your tracker.
You feel like doesn't count if you didn't record your workout.
You are disconnected from people and conversations because you are constantly looking at your watch.
You're constantly multitasking & feeling like you are never doing enough
You are feeling the need to step back & live life outside of tracking everything
These watches are a great tool but once they become an obsession, it's time to take a step back and tune into your body more.
