10 Benefits Of Owning A Fitbit

Fitbits are the biggest fitness tracker out there right now. And nothing compares to hitting 10,000 steps. Don't you agree?

1. Nothing feels better than reaching your step goal. When your wrist starts vibrating, it's (almost) like you won the lottery.

2. You'll sleep more. It makes you realize you really don't need to lay in bed and watch episodes of Hawaii Five O because that's valuable sleep time. Gotta meet my goal.

3. You literally never take it off. Never. Just to shower and charge it (which you do when you're sitting, so you don't miss tracking any activity).

4. "Friendly" competition keeps you movin'. The fact you can challenge your friends on who gets the most steps is the best and worst thing to happen, especially if you're competitive. You'll walk around your house like a madman just to get those last 200 steps (Thanks Ashley).

5. When you do take it off and forget to wear it, life is over (but kinda). That's thousands of steps. So many floors. Gone.

6. You are more aware. Seeing stats of how many calories you're burning, how much activity you're getting, your quality of sleep, how much activity your friends are getting, etc. opens your eyes. I've been sleeping better because instead of falling asleep to Netflix (which, can people actually do?) I listen to a boring podcast that knocks me out in a few minutes.

7. You don't have to remember to log workouts, this thing somehow knows what kind of workout you do and tracks that too. Unreal.

8. Eight-hour workdays go so much faster. Taking two, five-minute breaks and walking around the building, up and down the stairs, or maybe around the block not only adds steps, but gets you away from a computer and gives you more energy and focus on work.

9. (If you have one with heart rate) You get more out of your workouts. You can see if your heart rate was in fat burn, cardio or peak mode, so you can see if you're pushing yourself hard enough, or if you need to change it up.

10. It's a one stop shop. One app where you can track your water intake, what you eat, your workouts, sleep, heart rate, weight, distance traveled, and more. Instead of going between apps to stay on top of your fitness regime, it's all in one place. Convenient, simple, and fast.

With Spring Break right around the corner, why not give up a few hungover brunches and weekend trips to the bars and invest in a new best fit friend? You won't regret it (I promise).

Feel A Lil' Better: Because Air Travel Looks Different Now

If you have to travel, you can — you just have to take a few extra steps.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

As we are learning how to live our lives in the midst of a pandemic, one big question being travel. States that were initially labeled coronavirus (COVID-19) epicenters, like New York and New Jersey, are extra cautious in how freely residents can travel and then come home. Other states may not have the same travel restrictions as the epicenters, but one thing is for sure — no matter where you fly within the United States, that trip will look different than your usual summer vacation. Sure, it can still happen, you just need to take a few more steps to make sure your trip will go smoothly.

The Caribbean is a place where people go for vacation, but if you set out from a cruise ship you miss out on all the beautiful culture. Their exotic beaches are nothing without their zinging food and hospitality. Locals in the Caribbean are warmhearted with a zest to live life to the fullest.

This is exactly where most of their words and phrases come from, having a good time. I definitely enjoyed myself living in the Caribbean, but it's not always about lounging. They get work done too and I've learned proper phrases for accomplishments.

According to Urban Dictionary, a "simp" is defined as "a man that puts himself in a subservient/submissive position under women in the hopes of winning them over, without the female bringing anything to the table." There are many other definitions for a "simp," but basically it's shaming men who are kind to women without getting anything in return.

Let's just stop attacking nice men. Work out your own issues, don't project your shortcomings onto another man. What happened to the brotherhood? Y'all can lie for each other, but can't raise each other up? You guys can encourage murder, gang rape, and violence against women — or at least stay silent about it — but can't let your brother know it ain't cool when they bring you down for being nice to women with no expectation?

Living With Bipolar Disorder Is An Everyday Battle, But I'm Fighting It

I went from depression, to anxiety, to bipolar disorder.

I've thought about how to write this since my diagnosis. I've thought about what kind of feelings it might bring up from my mom, former friends, and even myself. I've rewritten it a thousand times in my head, but never could quite get the words onto my notepad, but tonight I'm going to sit down and write it.
