Twenty-five million people use Fitbit trackers to count steps and manage their physical activity, but I think they can be used for much more than that.
Consider these questions:
Before I share my own answers and how Fitbit ties into them, let's cover the basics of what Fitbit is and how it works.
What is Fitbit?
Fitbit is a tracker/watch, an app, and a fitness community rolled into one platform. Combining the Fitbit watch and app allows tracking of steps, activity, sleep, weight, and food intake.
The Trackers and Watches
Depending on which you buy (prices range from $100-$250) you can also track heart rate, blood oxygen levels, calories burned, and steps climbed. You can even track how many laps you swam in the pool, miles you biked, or paces you took on a treadmill.
Before you invest, take into account which features are most important to you.
Fitbit offers two categories of trackers: Basic fitness trackers and Smartwatches. No matter which you select, you still have access to the app it pairs with.
Downloading the Fitbit app is free, and the set-up is straightforward. Click HERE to get the Fitbit app from Google Play and HERE to download it from The App Store.
Inside the app are four main sections:
Challenges and Races
Finally, let's revisit the five questions I started this article with. How do you think Fitbit ties in with the answers?

Daylio is a free app (with a premium option) available for download on both apple and android. It's effortless to set-up and tremendously useful when creating new goals or trying to stick to old ones. Self-proclaimed a journaling app, Daylio tracks your moods and activities easily and with a simple to use layout. Most importantly, it helps monitor progress in any area of your life, and what you monitor nearly always improves.
I discovered Daylio after wanting to know how many good days vs. bad days I was experiencing with my chronic illnesses. I felt like I only had 4-5 good days before I got sick again, and I began wondering if there was a pattern somewhere. All I had to do was log it. But how? Tracking my activities and moods was what I needed to do, I just had to find a simple way to do it.
Using Daylio's tracking, I could finally answer the burning question, "How many days in a row have I had a headache?" (the answer is three, by the way.)
Imagine the kinds of patterns you'll discover.
Daylio is so simple my grandmother could use it, but it can also back up your data to Google Drive or export a CSV doc to Excel. You can even add a security pin so only you can see what you're feeling, what you're doing, or what you're tracking.
For getting back to the basics, I highly recommend this app over another that requires more time and effort- that inevitably you won't follow through with anyway.
Give Daylio a try. It's easy to set up, takes next to no time every day, and gives you amazing results and statistics for anything you want to monitor and improve.

We are back to talk to you about a unique and highly effective tool for increasing your focus, energy and sleep. THIS is Brain FM and you can try it free for 7 Sessions on your phone, tablet or PC.
Brain FM composes music/sounds that positively effect/alter your brain waves towards your goal of focusing, relaxing or sleeping. Plug your headphones in and within 5-10 minutes you will absolutely notice a difference.
As the owner of Eat2Live, I am always looking for new ways to help my Members better their lives and when I discovered Brain FM, it peeked my interest enough to test it for 30 days myself.
Once you provide your email and create a password you are taken to the home screen with three basic options of Focus, Relax, or Sleep. As of now, after providing my email address, I can happily say I've received zero spam or annoying emails. There are no pop-ups on the site, or anything else distracting.
After my first "focus" session, I was blown away at how much more productive I was. I worked at a faster pace and my quality of work was at it's peak. I just felt...clear headed and, well, focused!
I can only describe my first "sleep" session as a near hypnotic experience. The sounds you are listening to in your headphones really sound like they are right there, all around you, through you and next to you. I can only describe it as virtual reality for your brain and the science backs it up. Read more about how Brain FM works HERE
If you decide to purchase a monthly membership after your Free 7 Sessions, it's only $6.95 a month and gives you unlimited access to any sessions. It also opens up more choices for you when choosing your sounds. Read about Pricing HERE (it's worth it!)
Just choose what you need and let the sweet sounds take you away! The system was developed my neuroscientists who have dedicated their lives to this purpose and you know your monthly payments are going to good people. You can click HERE to learn more about the folks behind Brain FM.
Eat2Live highly recommends giving Brain FM a try for FREE at the very minimum. You be shocked at how life changing it can be, for sleep, for meditation, or for working. You're already blaring music anyway- why not put it to work for you and train your brain with Brain FM?
