Put a little “spring” in your Step

The first day of spring is finally here!  After the winter we’ve just had, I’m sure you are ready to get out and start enjoying some nice weather. What better way to start than with a nice long walk.  Walking has many benefits including, more energy, making you look and feel younger, it reduces stress and best of all it slims you down. Many healthcare professionals recommend that you try to take 10,000 steps a day, that’s equivalent to almost 5 miles. For some of us, this may be a reasonable goal, but for others it may be a challenge. The easiest way for you to keep track and improve your daily steps is to wear a pedometer.  Put it on in the morning and at the end of the day record your total steps.  Each day push yourself a little more until you finally reach your goal.  Here are some great ways to help increase your steps throughout the day:

·         Take a walk with your friend
·         Walk the dog
·         Use the stairs instead of the elevator
·         Park farther from the store
·         Better yet, walk to the store
·         Window shop
·         Plan a walking meeting
