To my younger self:  Stay hydrated!  Stay hydrated!  Stay hydrated!   Continue with a yoga program to stay flexible and to maintain balance.  SING!  DANCE! EVERYDAY!  Have a diet with many anti-inflamatory fruits and vegetables.  Step outside the box more often to explore and be present.

Everything in moderation. Think before you act. Enjoy this day. Be thankful.

I have heard so much about the fitbit and I would love to have one to help me keep track of my exercise routine. I walk on the treadmill every morning at a fast speed and I use free weights every day to help with my bone density. I would be thrilled to get a fitbit. Thank you for giving me this chance!

I could use a Fitbit, to tell me how incredibly unhealthy I am. Maybe one that says, "Hey fatass why don't you take a walk instead of eating that big bowl of ice cream. It would be nice if the Fitbit kept track of my oxygen levels too. I have COPD and have to monitor my O2 levels. I intend to lose forty pounds over the summer, get rid of this winter weight, and try to enjoy life a little more. Stay healthy out there people and good luck to all those trying to get healthier this year!

I would tell my younger self to watch my weight, what what I eat and exercise more.  I would tell me to get out of my office chair and move during the work day.  And most of all, try doing yoga!  I have had a weight problem most of my life and now that I am over 60, I am finding that I either lose it or get a knee replacement.  It is a simple decision but doing it is not so easy at my age.  I would tell my younger self to get the weight off, pay more attention to what I eat and WALK while it is easier!   This digital magazine came at a perfect time to help reinforce what I am doing to get healthy and lower my weight.  I am particularly interested in the stretches and the yoga parts as I am doing that as part of my daily regimen.  Thanks AARP!

Until I joined a health community at work, I did not see the value of a fitbit.  Now I see how advantageous it would be to be able to track steps, monitor sleep patterns, etc.  

 

Due to limited funds, I thought I could use some apps on my phone, but since my phone is not an appendage, it could not track my every move.  Would be really, really nice to own a fitbit.  I promise to journal and share with my AARP community.

Surprisingly, I disliked exercise as a kid.  And lo and behold, I am not fond of it now, either!   However, it appears that I need to do it anyway.  Darnit.  Hopefully, my new Fitbit will help!!

I would tell my young self to keep dancing and walking all the time.  Start using mosturizer sooner, it makes a difference.  Don't be so shy, it's easy to talk to people, just breathe and go for it.

Think healthy; think young; think a bit; think fitbit!
