The tools we are looking are referred smart device or gadgets, a gift from the technology.

Smart devices are considered as hurdles and time-waster. Yes! It can be, but as mentioned earlier the power of the tool can be used for betterment or destruction.
It depends on the person who uses it or the type of device. Also, it may not be the type but the way one intends to use. Every tool, it may be a sword or arms, can be used in two ways—to protect or to destroy.

The Story From Future
Consider an apocalyptic breakout of health crises in the year 2030.
The health crises were going high with every passing day. The government and families weren’t ready for such a disaster.
Government reserves on Health Management were exceeding from a long time. But in the year 2030, the disaster took an ugly face. The disease rate soared exponentially. Due to the epidemic, the expense rose 10 time higher those compared to 2018.
There was a tense situation as the reserve was draining but the condition wasn’t getting under control. The health condition of people was getting worse even with spending on treatment.
There were shocking stats.
Huge reserve, almost 90% was spent on the diseases that were treatable and easily avoidable by simple lifestyle changes.
To tackle the crises, the government took strict action.
The government took the initiative in hand to drop the disease rate and treat with the best strategy. They found lifestyle change is the least expensive but the potent solution. To make it possible, they passed a rule to make people choose a healthy lifestyle.
To make people healthy, the government took the support of technology. Mass production of fitness tracker was the next step so it can be distributed to every people.
Each person should wear and track the activity they do. For every age group, certain limits were set.
The government requested people to go through the process and to take initiatives to keep their family safe. While to achieve the task it wasn’t just the request, there was a certain condition.
If a family member doesn’t achieve daily, weekly and monthly target– they were held as a culprit for not following the rightful measures. It was considered a serious offense.
With the effort to make compulsion, people started to take it seriously.
The fund invested in devices paid with the lowering health problem.
With lower health problem, the expense on treatment saw a steep fall, which saved lots of money. While it paid with better well-being, better productivity which directly increased government revenue and saving.
That’s a case with a simple change and every person’s initiative, during the crises.
The Present Story
The future story might look a bit exaggerating. A government can’t take such action to make it compulsion, but one can’t neglect the fact of today’s (2019) health crises.
It may not be 2030 but the condition isn’t good right now. We are still facing the same problem. Our country is considered a Diabetes capital. The people with Diabetes is high and still rising. It’s not just diabetes, there are many health problems which is growing with passing time.
Millions lost life to a disease those were preventable and still the number is rising.
Billions of dollar are spent on these health problems. But the fund spent proves unworthy as the condition never gets under control due to no lifestyle changes. Complete dependency on medication and treatment for a lifetime doesn’t mean a healthy and happy life. It like adding a year but not able to enjoy at its fullest.
The government won’t be strict and can’t take such steps. But the loss can’t be neglected. The loss of happiness, and the financial crises for a disease that would be handled with ease.
We can’t sit comfortably when we see predators who have their eyesight on our family members. In the modern jungle, the predators are the diseases. These diseases are hunting and destroying millions of families.
The government may not force to use a tracking device, but you can take help of those devices to track your families health. You don’t need to force, instead, you can guide and build habits that will nurture their life.
A better habit and small investment will bring revolutionary changes. It will change the current health statistics drastically. And it’s only possible with everyone’s effort.
The device can be used by a child, or adult or elders. Everyone should have a certain activity target and they should complete it every day or at least every week. When every one start to track and measure, the changes will pay off.
Once said sedentary lifestyle generation will turn to an active lifestyle generation.
With the small initiative of each member, the risk of health problem will decrease. The budget those planned to spend on medicine will be directed toward better food, family trip, and whatever one can get. The quality of life and happiness will be at the peak.
You will feel powerful as you stand as a barrier and stop the disease from affecting any family member.
