Increase health or stress – what does measuring your well-being mean?

At its best, a wellness meter awakens you to a healthier life.

Incentives and physical activity A study published in the journal found that those using these devices increased their activity by 34 percent.

The included gauges can help and even reveal latent diseases.

Follow the results for longer to learn

Individual measurement results should not be stared at. For example, when measuring the number of steps, activity bracelets from different manufacturers may show completely different readings for the same day.

It’s worth keeping track of the results for longer, for example, half a year to see if anything has really changed.

– For example, a half-hour sleep deficit that lasts for days may not be noticed very quickly. Gradually, however, such a lack of sleep can degrade performance, TTL Development Manager Teppo Valtonen points out.

Perfection is a deceptive goal

At worst, continuous measurement causes performance pressures. Journal of Clinical Sleep A study published in the magazine found that many users of smart devices have begun to “use themselves”.

For example, the phenomenon called “orthosomnia” has become more common due to self-observation.

More and more people are applying for research because of the measurement results without having a real union problem.

– One of the biggest threats is that measurement is starting to take control of a lifetime. In this way, a person loses their ability to listen to their body and believes completely in the meters, Valtonen says.

Basically, monitoring sleep and health does not require equipment or applications, but a sense of self.
