If you spend most of your time behind your computer screen, this article is for you - keep reading! We understand that many of us are glued to our screens on a daily basis, whether it's working from home, gaming or bingeing a new Netflix show. But, that’s why understanding why metabolic health even matters so much.
You can think about metabolic health as the cornerstone of your overall well-being and prioritising it has a direct impact on your lifespan. If you have no clue about metabolic health, you are not alone - loads of people are not tracking it, which is why we want to share this information with you. So, this isn't just a regular blog post; it's our personal invitation to you to live a healthier and longer life.
Metabolic health may sound complex, but it's just about ensuring that your body functions smoothly and efficiently. Think of it as your health portfolio, including factors like blood glucose levels and blood pressure.These numbers aren't just random digits; they're like your body's own dashboard, showing you how well things are running inside. When these indicators are in harmony, it's like having a rock-solid crypto strategy.
Let’s face it, many of us spend hours in front of screens - I wrote this sitting down in front of a screen and it’s in moments like this that I wonder if I should get an adjustable height table and walking pad, but back to the point, metabolic health - we’ve become a little bit tooooo comfortable with our sedentary routines and it isn’t doing our metabolic health any favours.
The good news, the solution is (drumroll please) right under our feet - walking! Making walking a simple, daily part of your routine can be your metabolic health’s best friend. By walking more, you can make your body more responsive to insulin which keeps your blood sugar in check.
Walking is by far one of the easiest and most optimal ways to boost your metabolic health - so, why not use Step App to earn while you walk and make the most of this simple solution and earn while you do it? Step App’s Move-to-Earn (M2E) model rewards users for achieving fitness milestones. All you have to do is download Step App, create an account, and get some GEAR to start your earning journey. As you go about your day, once you start a session in-app Step App will automatically track your steps, converting them into tokens that can be traded for cash or spent on in-app purchases.
In case you didn’t know, yes, there is an optimal time to walk and guess what? It’s right after you eat!
Did you know that walking after you eat is a secret weapon for mastering blood sugar control? Studies have found that taking a walk after a meal can be a game-changer in keeping your glucose levels in check because they substantially reduce the post-meal spikes in blood sugar levels. And the best part? It's incredibly simple. No need for marathons or high-intensity workouts. Just a leisurely walk after eating can work wonders for your overall health.
Now let’s talk tech - Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGMs). These tiny devices are like having a micro companion that provides you with real-time insights into your glucose levels, helping you understand how your body responds to different factors. Veri, in particular, stands out by taking a fresh approach to enhancing your metabolic health. While standard health checkups might miss out on this, Veri focuses on something crucial – glucose variability.
Glucose variability is all about the fluctuations in your blood sugar levels. It's not just about the highs and lows; it's about the entire rollercoaster of changes. This often-overlooked aspect can have a significant impact on your overall metabolic health. Veri's CGMs are your personalised guides, offering insights into these fluctuations, making it easier for you to make informed choices that positively affect your metabolic health.
Meet the dynamic duo – glucose and insulin. They're the superheroes of your metabolic health story. But here's the twist – their performance is influenced by the choices you make daily, from what you eat to how active you are, and even how well you sleep and handle stress.
Understanding how these factors impact glucose and insulin is like decoding the central plot of your metabolic health story.
As we wrap up this journey through the world of metabolic health, we hope it's been more than just words on a screen. It's an invitation to take the first step toward a healthier, more fulfilling life. Think of it as an adventure, where simple changes like post-meal walks can make a world of difference in your well-being. We even crafted our app specifically to help you make movement a daily habit since your GEAR’s energy renews every 24 hours.
