2. A Fitness Tracker
Whether it’s a FitBit, Garmin, or Jawbone, fitness trackers can be a great motivator.

Some fitness trackers can be programmed to vibrate every 30 minutes to prompt you to break-up your sitting time by getting up from your desk and moving around, which research has shown is essential for good health.
