Achieve 10,000 steps
Walking is a great way to encourage more of us to improve our health. After all, it’s a cheap, easy and fun way to boost your wellbeing.
It has been found that taking 10,000 steps a day may well be related to health benefits, such as lower blood pressure, better blood glucose levels and improved mood.
Here are some easy ways to get you to 10,000 steps:
Take the stairs – Wherever you are, at home, at work, anywhere. If you wear a fitness tracker, you’ll score both steps and flights.
Take a moving break – During your lunch break, go on a 20-minute walk around the block. Not only will you get your steps in, but you may feel more focused at work. And remember to get up frequently during the day, not just at lunch.
Walk and talk – Take your business calls on-the-go.
