The hidden benefits of using BodyBarista during the summer holidays
Here's to summer! We all love it - well, most of us do.
And while you're out there enjoying it and having fun, it's a good idea to use BodyBarista from time to time to keep a pulse on your measurements.
You might not like it, but during the summer holidays, exercise and working out is probably not the first priority on your list.
And you probably don't watch out for what you eat as often as you otherwise do. Most people let go a little during this season, and that's ok.
However, monitoring how your body changes during this time might be interesting. You monitor how your body changes when you are putting the effort into it, so why not keep a pulse on what exactly is happening to your body when you don't?
It can also help to track where the changes are happening exactly.
You might have an idea of where you tend to put on weight the fastest or which of your muscles weaken first - but wouldn't it be interesting to see this data accurately in inches/cm?
And, furthermore, recording it for future use?
And if you're the type of person who only needs a little push to stay motivated, taking your measurements as the summer progresses might work to your benefit.
BodyBarista will be able to tell the small changes that you might otherwise not really notice at first, and consequently motivate you to try and eat (a little) healthier during your vacation, and to try to be (a little) more active.
Not to mention the health benefits to that.
Taking your measurements regularly even during summer could motivate you extra-hard when summer is over and you're back to your routine.
If your body has changed considerably during the summer months, you will, in turn, see the progress faster and easier as you get back to your regular exercising.
This works great for your motivation! Seeing progress is the #1 reason we stick to our fitness plan.
And let's not forget the long-term perspective.
Keeping a tab on your measurements regularly gives a long-term perspective to your fitness, health and physical appearance. You will have the data on your fluctuation of your measurements, your best and worst shape, all on your phone.
