I am sure you have heard the commotion about the mobile game app Pokemon Go! It seems just about everyone is currently obsessed with it! Aside from all of the crazy news stories, I wanted to know is this app effective at getting people off the couch and moving around? Click below to see my review!

The gist is that you actually walk around to get your character to walk through the game. As you walk Pokemon characters become apparent in your vicinity. Your character can throw a ball at the character & catch them. Throughout the game, your character catches Pokemon characters and obtains points, etc.

That’s great to know if you really care about Pokemon and the intricacies of the game. How about caring that you or your family members are now highly motivated to get up & move? That’s the genius concept behind this game. It has found an effective motivational factor to get people active. People who may usually snub away the idea of getting off the couch or gaming console are now eagerly walking. I think that is terrific!

A cool aspect of Pokemon Go is that there are goals of walking distances of 2k, 5k & 10k in order to get various eggs to hatch. It’s another clever way of the game to get people moving.You gain points for reaching distance markers, like an accumulation of 10k & visiting stops while walking.

I am not a huge Pokemon buff myself but I found the game immediately intriguing and addictive. There’s something compelling about the lure of the next character to find & catch. It’s also really fun to see your real world transformed into augmented reality. The game makes you want to keep walking just to see what’s right around the corner.

Clearly, personal safety and attention to the environment around you are imperative. Don’t cross streets while looking at your phone, don’t drive while playing the game & make sure you are safe at all times. No amount of points is worth causing injury to yourself or those around you!

So go catch 'em all while looking both ways!

I have previously reviewed the Bali Body Natural Tanning and Body Oil and the Bali Body Cacaco Tanning Oil here. The Natural Tanning and Body Oil is a lightweight moisturizer and will bring a tan when skin is in the sun. The Cacaco Tanning Oil gives an instant light bronze look even without sun exposure. If using them I the sun please remember skin protection with SPF lotion.
I personally choose not to expose my skin to direct sun. In 2013 I lost my mom to melanoma skin cancer. It is very aggressive and does horrible things to the body. I use these products without direct sun exposure, to moisturize, give a light glow to my skin and help my skin to be healthy with a flawless …
