I would tell my younger self, Thank the good Lord for everyday and love yourself first.  Then take a jog and work the rest of the day.  Your family will love you for your efforts.

Younger self - skip that candy bar at the check out lane.  Walk more, eat more green, stop having pop at your meals.  Take time to laugh.  An evening walk with your spouse will be perfect way to end your day.

protect yourself from the sun, learn to snack on fruits and veggies and learn ways to love them, keep active doing things you love outside and indoors as well, and have a full social life to sustain you.

Oh, younger self, are you in for a wild ride! 

Younger self - I have a secret to share, one that will help you enjoy life (more) to the fullest. A secret that you DO need to hear. Protect yourself from the sun more, wear that baseball cap. Keep fit, don't go crazy - enjoy being active.

Be mindful of the amount of sugar and fast food you'll consume and over indulge in hugs, smiles, compliments to others, and love for family and friends.

Younger self, listen to your body, your thoughts and enjoy the years to come - they'll be a blast!

I would tell myself to walk and exercise everyday and to eat mostly fruit and veggies.

I enjoyed the Be Healthy edition, however it would be easier to read if the content pages fit to the tablet screen. Too much scrolling and clicking is required to read everything. I prefer to just turn the page. 🤓

I enjoyed the latest Health and Wellness issue.

If I were able to go back to my younger days, I would make every effort to establish a daily meditation routine to alleviate stress and allow for mindfullness. In addition, I would say, "Yes!" to  more opportunities that came my way, especially travel, in order to build character within myself and open my eyes to the world.

Loved the article on how to read the new nutrition labels. I would have told my younger self to read the nutriton labels better; never realized how much sodium & sugar I was consuming. I am much more careful about that now! Also learned about serving sizes from the labels & realized I was eating way too much food per serving. Now I know better & the new labels will be a big help in the future. 

I have the FitBit Zip but would love to win the FitBit Charge 2. Good luck to everyone!
