Happy New Year.  Ready for the Steps Challenge?  On with the pedometer and off you go.

Remember to get a notebook to take a note of the number of steps you do today.

Tips to get your steps up

  • Park as far away from the suermarket doors as possible.  It’s easy to get a parking space because nobody else wants to park there, although it may be filled now with people taking the 6K Challenge.
  • Walk to the shops/supermarket if you can
  • If you use public transport go to the next bus stop to catch the bus.  Not the nearest one.  I find it easier to do this at the beginning of a journey, rather than at the end.
  • You may feel like a bit of a twit, but when the adverts come on have a bit of a walk on the spot, or go up and down stairs
  • If you are on the phone, stand up and walk around
  • If you have a sedentary job get up and have a walk every hour or so.  If you are discouraged from leaving your desk, are you able to just stand up and walk on the spot whilst still doing your job.  I used to work in a call centre and sometimes used to move around whilst taking a call.

I’m sure you will have lots of other ideas and it would be great if you could email me with them and I’ll share them here.

Happy walking.
