Yesterday, we saw the importance of regular exercise if we want to improve our lives and our minds.
If you’re anything like me, you don’t find it easy to make exercise part of your routine.
We need to select a time, or preferably more than one time in the day when we’ll be able to do exercise, and then stick to it. This is where I always failed, as I couldn’t afford the time I thought I required.
Enter the fitbit!
One of the best things to enter my life in recent months has been the arrival of a Fitbit!
I discovered I didn’t need to set aside an hour or two a day! Every step I took counted. Even walking to put on the kettle to make tea. Suddenly, instead of saying, “Rob, when you’re in the kitchen, please put on the kettle,” I get onto my feet and go and put on the kettle myself! Then I walk back and forward in the cottage until the kettle boils. Every step counts!
Every hour, the fitbit wants me to get up and walk continuously for 250 steps! It sounds a lot, but I’ve discovered if I’m short on time, I can do this in two minutes!
I brought some of my creativity into play and I have set silent alarms (which vibrate on my wrist) to tell me to start walking 5 minutes before the hour, and then I walk until 5 minutes after the hour. That takes care of two hours’ worth of walks!
In itself, that is good, as it gets me up from the computer and away from the screen for a short 10 minutes.
Walking on the spot also counts. If I walk briskly on the spot for ten minutes, my pulse shoots up and that counts as ten minutes strength exercise!
I’ve put my newly-diagnosed (to me!) OCD tendencies to work here, and I’m being quite paranoid about completing every goal. I’m getting fit, losing weight, and sleeping better!
So am I recommending you get a fitbit? Oh yes!
Do I get paid to promote it? Oh no.
But really? I see this as a total life-changer in my life.
