Interesting… Apparently, one recommended method to get some exercise into one’s routine is to try and take at least 10,000 steps every day.
If you increase your daily activity, but still fall short of the 10,000 steps a day then add in some walking. As a rough guide, one mile takes around 2,000 steps.
Say you need to walk daily for 30 minutes. It’s o.k. to split it up into three walks of ten minutes each. It actually gets the body attuned to regular activity and reinforces the habit. It may also be more beneficial to your metabolism.
I just got a free pedometer at the grand opening of a new rec center here. Looks like I’ll be putting that puppy to work!
