Try using a pedometer
A pedometer tracks the number of steps you take. Many are now available in “wearable tech” such as in a smart watch. The average person takes anywhere from 2,000 to 5,000 steps in a day with a normal routine. Some research has suggested that taking 10,000 steps a day (roughly equal to 8 km) leads to a healthier you.
Wear the pedometer for a few days to determine your usual daily step total. Then, set a goal to increase your average by 500 steps. When you achieve the new goal for several days in a row, set a new one, and you are on your way!
When you see how many steps you’re taking a day you’ll soon be looking for ways to up the count. Parking a little farther away from the door, walking an extra loop around the mall…or just walking with a friend, all contribute to more steps.
Look for a pedometer:
● known for its accuracy
● with a cover to prevent the button from accidentally being reset.
● that is easy to use.
