WHY 10,000 daily steps?

Is it all it’s cracked up to be? Yes it is!

I view this (walking 10,000 steps a day) as a basic requirement for good health, like drinking enough water each day. Your body is designed for movement. Many researchers are now starting to emphasise the importance of walking (low impact, low intensity) and spending less time sitting.

MOVE MORE, SIT LESS – WHY?

Have you ever thought about reducing the time you spend sitting each day to help improve your health and wellbeing?

How long have you been sitting today? Maybe you sit to eat breakfast, at your work desk, in the classroom, in the car, on the train, and in front of the TV in the evenings. It all adds up.

We now know that sitting time is a health risk with both long and short term impacts. To reduce your risk of health problems, you need to be aware of how much you sit and try to move more throughout the day.

Incredible Results From Walking 30 Minutes A Day!

Taking a 30 minute walk a day is sort of like that proverbial apple: There’s a good chance it’ll keep the doctor away!

The benefits of walking are well documented. From helping you lose weight and de-stress to lowering your blood pressure and reducing your risk of many chronic diseases. Regular walking is one of the best and easiest things you can do for your health. WHY? – because walking is very easy to do, requires nothing but a pair of comfortable shoes, and has tremendous mental and physical benefits. It is one of the most effective low-impact ways to positively alter your body composition. Daily walking increases metabolism by burning extra calories and by preventing muscle loss; increasingly important as we age!
