Fitness trackers or mindfulness apps as an aid to fitness and wellbeing. Anyone with experience they'd like to share?
My daughter's OT suggested getting a fitness tracker (eg FITBIT or similar) as a tool for encouraging her to be aware of her fitness, but also as a way of tracking her types of sleep, as she is often exhausted all day. (She is 26.) Having completed recently a training in Mindfulness to help combat constant anxiety we wondered about acquiring a Fitbit which also has breathing exercises as an option. I have heard that some peole can be allergic to the straps, and also am aware that my daughter really doesn't cope with anything round her wrist for very long. Having looked at several online, including others which can attach with a clip, I'm confused as to which direction to take - a simple one for £20 or something like the Fitbit Charge 2 at £113 which has more sophisticated programmes. I'm a bit of a tech virgin so would love some feedback. Has anyone found these useful tools to encourage personal fitness/motivation/wellbeing either for themselves or for someone they care for? Or is it more likely to be relegated to the bottom drawer (like many other worldbeaters before!)? It's an expanding area and I just feel these things could be incredibly useful, though self motivation has to be the key I would think.
