How To Reach 10,000 Steps Without Going For A Walk!

There's so much pressure!

We know the drill. We ‘need’ to walk 10,000 steps each day! Easier said than done, right?

But how do we manage it?

Reaching this goal is even hard when you specifically pencil in a walk to get moving – so what about when you don’t have time for one?

Well, it turns out that it’s much easier to get to 10,000 steps when you don’t even realize you are doing it. There are several other ways to get moving – without the need for a designated walk.

If 10,000 does seem unachievable with your current schedule, look at the little ways you can increase the step count below.

Here’s How To Achieve Your 10,000 Steps Without Taking A Walk!

When you can, take the stairs! Even in your home… try to do 10 ups and 10 downs…

Walk and talk!
Stand up and walk while you’re on the phone instead of being glued to your chair.

Set a reminder!
Have an alarm each hour to remind you to get up and move!

Standing Desk!
If you’re working from home, position your laptop at eye level, for example, on a high chest of drawers. If you’re in the office, ask your office manager if they’re able to get in a couple of standing desks.

Park Further Away!
If you drive into work, or even if you’re just going to the shops, park further away than you usually would.

Vacuuming is a great chore for those steps in!

Food Shopping!
Do your food shopping in-store rather than ordering online, walk to the shops, and walk the aisles.

Have A Dance!
Put on some feel-good music and dance it out.
