ARE YOU GETTING YOU’RE STEPS IN? 🚶♀️
When it comes to being ‘healthy’ were often reminded to aim to walk 10,000 steps per day 🚶♀️.
For some people a goal of 10,000 steps may not be appropriate 🤷♀️ , especially when we are so busy at times with work and ( pre pandemic) life 🦠
Sometimes you check your Fitbit or fitness tracker and you can see that you’ve only reach maybe 10% of your target 🎯 . You instantly feel you ‘failed’, my suggestion is change your target!
Remember start small, try not to start this week by telling yourself you need to do 10,000 steps per day🚶♀️. Why not start with 5,000 or even just track how many steps you are doing on a daily basis and next week aim to beat this by 500 steps a day. If your goal is too ambitious, it can be demotivating. Just remember Rome was not built in a day!
Here are some simple tips to help you to achieve 10,000 steps:
🔷If able to walk part of your journey to work 🗂
🔷Instead of sending your colleague to the kitchen to make you a cuppa tea, get up yourself and go ☕️
🔷Take the stairs instead of the lift 🛗
🔷Walk the kids to school (when they go back!) 🏫
🔷Find a friend to walk with, have a good old natter whilst you’re walking
🔷Park further away from the supermarket 🛍
🔷Use your lunch break to do 10 minutes of walking 🚶♀️
Just remember walking is free, and if you’re local in Yorkshire the views are stunning and the beautiful countryside is literally around the corner!
