Using my smartwatch to monitor heart health.

Between doctors visits, I monitor my heart health by keeping track of heart rate (active and resting), blood pressure, respiratory rate, and how I feel in general after getting my blood pumping. I use my smartwatch to help me learn about my common stats and what is normal for me. I’ve learned to really be in tune with my body. How am I feeling? What is by body trying to tell me? It looks like I didn’t drink much water yesterday, is that why I feel icky today?

By the way, smartwatch apps REALLY need a “new mom setting” where it doesn’t sleep shame us for only getting 5 hrs of sleep because of a fussy baby. Am I right or am I right?!?

I used to be able to get my heart rate up enough during a brisk walk to call it a workout. Today I went for a quick 1.5 mi stroll and my Garmin was like, umm your heart rate never left zone 2. Those were steps, not a workout.

That’s great progress in my book! Never forget the little accomplishments on your journey. They add up to create important milestones to a happier, healthier you.

What’s something small that has helped improve your overall health?
