While the bulk of my Pinterest pins are recipes I mean to try when I have time and energy to do more than click and save, there are a couple of boards I do actually use/try almost right away in a lot of cases. I’m not perfectly consistent with where I put stuff, but my thought process is that Health is, well… wellness-related, although it does include some yoga/stretches for back pain, but you might also find similar under Fitness, and still more fitness-related pins can be found under Hit the trail! which is where anything related to running, walking and/or hiking can be found.
Pinterest is probably my favorite time suck – er… social media site. I don’t have to remember to snap a photo or upload it somewhere (Instagram) and I’m not even going to touch Twitter. I just don’t get that one, maybe because I don’t get the whole concept of brevity either.
Anyway, Pinterest is especially handy for my fitness “ooooh shiny!” moments because I can access it everywhere and anywhere. I can pull up that playlist on the trail, in the gym… wherever I am when I realize I need it. Same with yoga routines. Sure, I bookmark them on my laptop, but what happens when my iPad and I are waiting for a meeting to start and I have a moment to center myself and work the kinks out before the others arrive? Yeah. I do these things… you don’t?!
Do you pin?
Do you have a favorite … whatever site? Pinterest? Instagram? Twitter? (And seriously, if you love Twitter, why? Can you explain it to me?)
