Adding More Steps Each Day

A few tips to help you walk further each day, without changing too much in your daily routine

  • Park your car further from the door when shopping, running errands or going to dinner. You could gain as much as 2,000 extra steps
  • Opt to take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator whenever possible. You’ll burn a lot more calories and gain strength
  • Schedule a walking work meeting or take a conference call outdoors.. The fresh air will clear your mind and get your creative juices flowing
  • Go window shopping at the mall. It’s a great way to get extra steps in on a rainy day
  • Offer to walk a dog in your neighborhood. A young dog will usually get you going at a fast pace and for longer than if you were walking alone
  • Skip the drive thru and walk in to get your morning coffee - these days it will probably be just as fast
  • Get up 15 minutes earlier and take a lap or two around the block before heading to work
  • Instead of meeting a friend for lunch, plan an hour walk or hike during your break
  • When out grocery shopping or at the mall - skip the cart return in the parking lot and instead walk the shopping cart back to the store front
