To increase your daily steps, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), USA, suggests starting by choosing a route and time of day that you can easily follow.
Their experts advise that the key is to “start slowly and try to be physically active for 150 minutes a week.”
Some other great ways to improve your daily count can be done by walking the dog, walking as a way to socialize with friends or neighbors, walking any time you see wait, park far away from your destination, take the stairs instead of the elevator, and take short walks during your workday.
Try to walk at a moderate pace to get your heart rate up and sweat. In general, at moderate intensity, you can talk, but not sing, says the CDC.
