I really like the digital magazines from AARP. Informative and interesting. I would love to have a fitbit. It's one of those things I keep hoping someone will give me for a gift, but it hasn't happened yet, unfortunately Smiley Happy

I am fortunate that my younger self did a really good job of eating and exercising. So, instead of telling my younger self how to stay healthy, I continue to listen to my younger self advising me about what I need to do to be healthy.

You can also track food/calories and water intake.

I want a Fitbit to help  Me keep track of how many steps I take per day and how many calories I burn.

If I could tell my younger self how to stay healthy through the years it would start with stay active in things that make me happy and keep stress as far away as possible. Then I would tell myself that I need a healthy lifestyle of food not a diet. I would finish up by telling myself that movement is exercise so I should keep dancing with joy to keep myself fit.  A Fitbit or other motivation tool could help with this tremendously.

I am very active, walking, hiking, cycling, swimming and I teach yoga to seniors in Southern Arizona. Would love a Fitbit to track my activities and sleep habits. I love to encourage people to get out and move their bodies and am always happy to hear how good they feel after a few yoga sessions.

Guess not.  It really just takes a start and the proper mindset.
