I never thought I would be one of those people who uses an Apple watch. I mean, why do you need a watch when you have a phone? And you KNOW my phone distracts me enough, the last thing I need is more access to Facebook. Instagram, email, etc. But let me tell you, the apple watch has been a game changer for me since becoming a full time homemaker. Here's why...
The Connectivity is Key
One of the best things about the apple watch is the connectivity with my iPhone. I can answer phone calls and texts without ever having to know where my actual phone is. We all know how elusive our phones can be when we're trying to find them in a hurry. With the apple watch, I don't have to worry about that anymore. And trust me, as a homemaker, there are plenty of times when I'm in the middle of something and can't stop to find my phone. So being able to answer it right from my wrist has been a total lifesaver.
My watch connects to all of the important apps on my phone. Being able to glance quickly at my wrist when I get a notification is a huge time saver. I never miss anything important (like a freebies app notification for a product we are searching for) but I can ignore everything that is not important. My screen time has gone down and I get less distracted while doing tasks!
Apps like calendar, notes, and reminders keep me on task throughout the day. I even use alarms and timers from my watch to keep me moving and getting things done.
The Phone Finding Feature is clutch
Speaking of not being able to find my phone, the handy "phone finding" feature on the apple watch has come in handy more times than I can count. Let's face it, we've all been there. You're looking for your phone for what feels like forever and then you finally find it...only to realize that it was in your hand the whole time. With the apple watch, you can avoid those frustrating situations entirely because if you ever can't find your phone, all you have to do is open up the app on your watch and it will ping your phone so you can easily find it - even if it's on vibrate. No more wasted time!
I'm More Active When I Wear It
I've noticed that on days when I wear my apple watch, I am much more active overall. And that's because the watch has a built-in reminder function that encourages you to move around every hour or so. For me, this has been key in combating the sedentary lifestyle that often comes with being a homemaker. Let's face it, sometimes it's hard to remember to get up and move around when you're knee deep in laundry or scrubbing toilets. But with the apple watch, I don't have to worry about that because it reminds me to move every hour whether I want it to or not! And trust me, my body thanks me for it at the end of the day.
If you're thinking about making the switch to full-time homemaking, then you need an apple watch in your life! It will change the way you connect with your family, stay active throughout the day, and stay organized (even when everything else feels like it's falling apart). Trust me, as a fellow homemaker, I know what I'm talking about! So go ahead and treat yourself to an apple watch today. You deserve it!
