Best Activity Trackers 2017

Fitness trackers have become a necessity to everyone who likes being active. Exercise, running, swimming… Whatever you do to keep fit and feel happy, you might have considered buying this gadget at some point. Or perhaps, you have already got one.

I still haven’t purchased my activity tracker, to be honest with you, and use a mobile app instead – Sports Tracker which is pretty awesome. But I think a wristband or a smaller device would be a great deal, as having my phone with me at all times is not always an option.

OK, time to share something useful with you. ReviewsBee is a platform that creates top-10 lists based on a deep algorithm research. Its team have prepared a list of the top 10 activity trackers for this year. Also, they were most kind to provide me with an infographic to share with you. It will give you a flavour of what activity trackers are and how they can help you enjoy physical activity.

Ginger, Lemon & Honey Jar

Ginger, Lemon & Honey Jar

We all know about the benefits of lemon water. A glass of warm water and fresh lemon juice in the morning is said to be extremely good for our health. It boosts your energy levels, helps to improve digestion and most importantly, it is used to detox the body and aid liver function.

If you don’t mind squeezing a fresh lemon early in the morning and prepare this healthy drink, that’s amazing. I have tried and tried, but I must admit, I can’t be that consistent (a Gemini, you know). Besides, I don’t want to give up my morning cup of coffee. Still, I want to kick start the day as healthy as possible. This is the reason I chose an alternative – ginger, lemon and honey.
