Holiday parties, shopping for gifts, and shorter days make it tough to fit in fitness. You need to stay active to rev metabolism, increase energy, and decrease stress – plain and simple! Sometimes, we need to grab that tool out of the toolbox to keep us in check. That tool for me this month is definitely Fitbit.
Fitbit Flex tracks your daily activity. Even intermittent activity you do throughout the day increases your overall health and wellness. It doesn’t have to be continuous to receive heart healthy benefits – it all adds up.
A good goal is to hit 10,000 steps daily and make those steps count!
Most days, I know I can cut out at least 20 minutes of me time for cardio. A run on the waterfront is perfect. Twenty minutes is just one third of one hour. That’s realistic and doable when your holiday schedule tends to fill up.
For those days that just seem to slip away, I will either try to walk to pick up the kiddo from school…
or I’ll take him to the park. He plays on the playground equipment while I walk the perimeter of the playground. We also explore the park and enjoy our surroundings.
Take the stairs instead of the elevators and escalators, meet friends for a walk at lunchtime, and park at the far end of parking lots to log in extra steps. Just sync the Fitbit to your phone to see real time stats of your efforts.
Not only does Fitbit track your fitness (steps, distance, calories, & active minutes), but it will track your sleep patterns as well. How cool is that!?
Anything that motivates you to move more and to live healthier is truly worth investing in.
