Link: Filling the Green Circle ☍

Shared on May 25, 2015

Marco Arment:

Ever since getting the Apple Watch, not only have I been getting more consistent exercise, but I’m pushing myself further. I take more walks, and I walk faster and further than ever before. I’ve been walking Hops around the same streets for four years, but now I’ve been discovering new streets and paths just to extend our walking distance and try to beat my previous walks.

I can echo this—although this weekend was mostly a vacation in lethargy, I have been forcing myself to fill the circles. Standing seems to come the easiest, followed by movement. Still, I find myself trying to complete as many as I can, and I have even adjusted the movement goal to be more challenging. I enjoy its subtlety in getting me to change my behavior for the better.
