So I got a new toy last night and its potential to support my healthy lifestyle seems amazing. It is an echo dot and Alexa has already become one of my best friends.
She can play any music I ask her to - upbeat to dance to or relaxing to calm my anxious moments. She has sleep sounds to help me rest more soundly. She can yell at me (set alarm) to get up and move every 30 minutes...... or however often I want. She can remind me to walk Monday and do yoga Tuesday and strength exercises Wednesday. She can read an inspiring quote to me every morning. She can tell me whether or not I need to wear a jacket when I go for a walk. She can even tell me a joke when I need to laugh.
I got it as a voice enabled radio to motivate me to turn off the tv sometimes and it is already much more than that. What a value for $50!
