8 Ways to Increase Your Steps

One of my favorite activities to getting fit is increasing my steps every day. This is a perfect long term strategy to improve your fitness levels without going overboard.

Here are 8 ways to increase your steps every day:

  1. Park Further Away
    • This is easy enough – just park your car towards the back of the parking lot and get a few extra steps in.
  2. Pace During Your Next Call or TV Show
    • A quick 30 minute phone call can add hundreds of additional steps to your day.
  3. At Work: Walk to a Coworker Instead of Emailing Them
    • Rather than sending them a quick message, go see your colleague face to face. This will add in tons of extra steps!
  4. Partner Up
    • Having a partner can help with accountability. Establish a daily/weekly time to meet up and go for a walk.
  5. Take a Walk at Lunch
    • Taking a quick stroll before or after lunch is a great idea and the fresh air will do you good.
  6. Competition Anyone?
    • A little friendly competition is a great way to get extra steps in. I am currently in a step challenge for work as well as step challenges with my FitBit friends!
  7. Take The Stairs
    • Avoid elevators and escalators to rack up steps instead. Using stairs also provides a little energy boost too.
  8. End Your Trip Early
    • Get off the bus or out of your Uber/Lyft a block or two away from your destination and walk the rest of the way.
