Keep up the great work and learn to use these easy ways to meet your goal of walking 10,000 steps a day.

Way to go! You’re doing a terrific job so far! This week’s focus is on getting more exercise. Use these easy ways to meet your goal of walking 10,000 steps a day:

  • When you talk on the phone

Instead of sitting on the couch, pace back and forth or walk laps around your house as you chat.

  • When you watch television

Instead of using the remote to channel-surf, get up and switch stations yourself (you might have to hide the remote!).

  • When you let the dog out

Instead of opening the back door so the dog can run around in the yard, take your pet for a 10-minute walk around the neighborhood.

  • When you spend time with your family

Instead of heading to the movies, go to a museum or, better yet, take a trip to the park so you can play kickball or tag.
