Want to know how active you are? Fitbit Flex has you covered.

A couple of clients here at Minerals By Bee Organic Spa have been sporting the sleek FitBit Flex, which looks fashionable and minimal, and at first glance simply looks like one of those sporty rubber wristbands. As we all know, I’m not an active person myself; I attempt to eat healthy and periodically run on a treadmill, but upon researching this little gadget, I’ve found that it’s quite a useful tool. You don’t need to be a long-distance runner or a cardio stalker to make the most of this wristband, and most importantly, it gets you motivated to move and burn calories, leading to a healthier lifestyle.

FitBit not only tracks a step-based goal, but it also tracks progress toward distance, calories burned, or “very active minutes” of activity, although measuring high levels of activity can be hit or miss. It also has a very interesting sleep tracker, which counts how many hours you’ve slept and wakes you up gently with a silent vibration that won’t disturb your partner, which was incredibly thoughtful of the designers.

“Insufficient sleep is associated with a number of chronic diseases and conditions—such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and depression—which threaten our nation’s health. Notably, insufficient sleep is associated with the onset of these diseases and also poses important implications for their management and outcome. Moreover, insufficient sleep is responsible for motor vehicle and machinery-related crashes, causing substantial injury and disability each year. In short, drowsy driving can be as dangerous—and preventable—as driving while intoxicated.”1

FitBit is perfect for people on the go, who care about the progress of their health. And so is Minerals By Bee Organic Spa … not only do we provide both relaxation and therapeutic table massages, we also provide corporate massages 🙂 yes we come to you.
