A few months ago, I began wearing a fitness tracker.
At first, I hesitated about wearing one because I didn’t want to obsess about the numbers that I saw on the screen.
For instance, I didn’t want to feel guilty if I didn’t complete my footstep goal for the day. Additionally, I didn’t want a device monitoring all my activities that closely. Basically, I didn’t want to become reliant on the device for my health and wellness. But there are also benefits to fitness trackers. The devices can monitor your sleeping habits. It can monitor the different stages of sleep and then tell whether or not you’re getting enough for the night. Furthermore, these fitness devices can also monitor your body temperature and potentially predict if you’re about to get sick. Not only can it monitor your sleep, but the device can also monitor your heart rate and blood pressure as well. This means the fitness tracker can be used as a preventative medical device that helps you to identify potential problems in your body. So if you’re concerned about health and wellness, wearing a fitness tracker might be the way to go. I have certainly used mine more than I thought I would. And all my initial hang ups are out the door. I am not obsessing about the numbers on the screen, instead I use them as merely a guide for my wellness and fitness. I am not getting any younger, so if this device can serve as a way for me to improve my health, then I am sold on the idea.
