As a mother to 2 young children, I love the sleep habit from the Basis app. I love to know how long I actually slept for. Sleep is crucial for my ability to be patient and energetic for my kids so any feedback as to how I can improve my sleep is definitely appreciated.

Basis Habits Game

I love Basis habits game! I really enjoy picking my goals/ habits based on areas I choose to improve, not some general goal of reaching 10, 000 steps a day. As a fitness professional and mother of 2, my goals vary week-to-week.

Goals I’ve chosen:

  • Wear it- habit to wear the Basis Band more each day.
  • Get more sleep- as a mother of 2, this is a goal based on group effort ;)
  • Move it- I knew I would accomplish this goal merely chasing after my 2 kids.
  • Don’t be a sitter- I loved seeing how long I sit for at one time…not very long with all the demands of motherhood ;)
  • Morning lap- this is the habit that keeps me motivated to create time in the morning for my mommy hour of intense workouts, either weight-training, running, or Yoga.

I really like how Basis habits are fun and easy to understand. When I click on the habit, I receive more specific data, like how many minutes in each zone, how many calories burned, how many steps taken, how many hours I slept and of course the crème de la crème, heart rate.

The best part of having the Basis Band on my wrist is feeling empowered to create a healthier life, like I’m truly in control of creating a healthier me. I feel more in-tune with myself overall and more connected with my mind and body. The data will also be very useful to give realtime feedback to any health professional in the future.

Stay tuned for more updates soon :)

Basis Tracking My Heart Rate and Sleep

I have been wearing my Basis Band for about a week now. I love the data! I especially love the pattern feature, it tells me my sleep quality, duration, perspiration (definitely a sweaty Betty) how many times I was awoken (thanks to my toddler) and heart rate. As a mother of 2, I rely on quality sleep and any data I can use to improve my restful state is highly beneficial.

The overall habits game motivates me to keep wearing my device for the precious data I collect on myself. What better subject to study than moi :)
The “constructive feedback” I was surprised to find out was I don’t walk as much as I thought I did. I do a lot of driving with all the kids’ activities, but walking is an area I can definitely improve upon. I am a total fitness enthusiast and I stay active by weight-training, running, and practicing yoga but general walking is an area I can increase. I love challenges to improve my overall health. Here’s to another week of health-tracking  with my Basis Band :)

So happy to own my very own Basis Band. Now I can track my lifestyle and improve areas of my life I was otherwise clueless about. As a mother of 2, and a fitness professional, I am excited to know more on my overall lifestyle habits, especially sleep. I will be blogging soon with updates on my experience using the Basis Band so stay tuned!
