First off, Happy Easter everybody.
I recently wrote about my decision to purchase an Apple Watch to help in my diabetes management. One of my favorite things that I didn’t talk about was how the watch reminds me to stand up. As someone who owns a digital marketing agency, an e-commerce craft site and a multitude of affiliate marketing websites, I spend a lot of time in my chair all day. Like, a lot of time. Some times up to 16 hours a day just sitting.
All of that sitting is just horrible.
I have the app set up to remind me to stand up once every 30 minutes. I tend to work, when I plan it out, with the Pomodoro Technique which is work on one task only for 25 minutes an then take 5 minute break and then start back up for 25 minutes. So, I plan my days in 25 minute blocks. During those 5 minutes, I try and stand up and walk around or get a quick game of hide and seek with the kid (perks of working from home).
There are some days that I just sit for 3-4 hours at a time without getting up and oblivious to the world around me. Those are usually project launch days! The watch helps remind me with a little vibration every 30 minutes.
The more and more I use the watch and all of it’s features, the more and more I love it and can’t wait for the next product that Apple releases that can help manage my diabetes.
