Get Your Steps In
Experts recommend 10,000 steps per day, but if you have a desk job that can be tough. Here are 10 tips on how to get those extra steps in everyday.
Take the stairs over the escalator or elevator.
Park farther away from the store.
Take a few extra laps around the grocery store when shopping.
Take a walk around the local mall during your lunch break.
Clean the house! Vacuuming can add several steps to your day.
Track your steps. Most mobile phones now have built in step counters.
Working from home? Put on a headset and walk around the house during calls. Unless you're on camera. That would be weird.
Get up and walk around the house during commercials.
Early for an appointment? Walk around the building rather that just sitting in the car.
Set an alarm to get up from your desk every hour and take a short walk.
