How can I make my walks more effective?

Being active is an accomplishment all on its own. Kudos to you for focusing on yourself and being active! A couple ways to make your walks more effective include:

  • Purchase a pedometer and be sure to walk 10,000 steps every day. Having a set goal will help you work towards something on a daily basis. Find a day where you easily reach 10,000 then go for 15,000, no one is stopping you!
  • Track your workouts on a walking log or walking calendar. These suggestions will help you track your progress and set you up for success. Everyone needs a goal so use these tools to set and achieve that goal!

Options are endless so get up and go!
