Increasing Your Daily Steps

Increasing Your Daily Steps

Getting healthy should be a journey, not a destination.  We should be constantly checking and tweaking our lifestyles to get the most benefit out of our diets and exercise program.

However, we don’t need to obsess.  Just keep some “healthy attention” on what’s going on, and try to get maximum benefit from minimum effort.  That’s my goal, anyway.

One way to do this is to keep track of your steps and constantly come up with creative (though not necessarily ridiculous) ways to increase them.

This can get tedious, though, so I like to use tools and different prompts to help me along.  Here are some of my favourite:

For tracking my steps I use the iStepLog app for my iPod Touch.  This connects to the very cool 10,000 steps website that encourages you to sign up for different challenges, like “The Camino de Santiago” that you can walk virtually.  You also get cool certificates that let you know when you’ve reached 1,000,000 steps.  Lots of fun!

About.com has a cool forum where you can post the number of steps walked to reach a group goal, or the number of walks you take each day and such.  It’s also fun, and there’s lots of interaction between members.

On the right hand side of this blog you’ll also see a sign-up form to get a free e-book with 45 ways to increase your steps.  Take a look!

Do you have any ideas for increasing your steps and/or keeping track?  If so, post them below in the comments so everyone can benefit.
