1001 steps, 1002 steps, 1003 steps…. Does this sound like you and your fitness tracker?
Counting up your steps till you reach your magic number of 5k, 10k or more steps in a day
Well studies have found over the past few years it makes us feel unhappier as our fitness trackers turn going for a walk, run or a bike ride etc into a chore.
Don’t get me wrong people who use fitness trackers have been found to walk and run further however they were also found to hate it much more than people who were measured who didn’t use trackers.
At the end of the day, fitness and sport should be fun so get out there and enjoy it!
