10 Ways to Reach 10,000 Steps a Day
- Set an Hourly Alarm
Set an alarm for every hour to remind you to get some steps in. Take a lap around the office, the block or around the house to up those daily step counts.
- Walk While You Wait
Checked-in early for an appointment? Take a lap around the building or block instead of sitting in the waiting room.
- Find a New Trail
Is there a neighborhood you’ve been wanting to explore? Take a walk around and find some new trails, shopping or dining spots!
- End Your Trip Early
Get off the bus or train a stop or two early and finish the rest of your commute with a walk.
- Take the Stairs
Try taking the stairs as often as possible when you would typically take the elevator or escalator.
- Add Some Accountability
Post your goals and accomplishments on social media and invite your friends and family to join along.
- Take a Walk at Lunch
When you’ve finished lunch, take a walk around the block before resuming work.
- Partner Up
Find a walking buddy or a friend you can call to walk and talk with.
- Pace During Your Next Phone Call
Pace instead of sitting during your next phone call to boost your step count!
- Park Further Away
Park your car at the furthest end of the parking lot to get some bonus steps in to and from your car.
