According to health experts, each person should take 10,000 steps a day for a healthy, active lifestyle.
But to be honest, the couch looks more inviting and we need a bigger reason to move backsides. So, how do you start?
First off, wake up and get moving! It’s never really about how early you sleep. It’s your will to wake up, stand up and get moving! Next, do this repeatedly everyday and then do this for weeks. Get friends to do it with you to!
You don’t have to run a marathon – you can do any kind of activity! Walk, jog, cycle, play basketball, box or even do some house chores!
If you want to make every step count, check out Steptember! It’s a game-changer!
Steptember is a health and wellness campaign that runs in 6 countries all over the world. It encourages people to take 10,000 steps a day for the month of September and each step helps the Cerebral Palsy Alliance raise funds for people with Cerebral Palsy. The funds raised from Steptember will be used to provide facilities and services for people with Cerebral Palsy and as well as for research.
Taking part of Steptember is easy! You only need 3 other people – family, friends or co-workers – to join you in your fitness journey!
The team will track their steps online using the pedometer provided. Find out more about the Steptember challenge here!
Taking 10,000 steps might not easy – but if it’s for a worthy cause, you know each step you take counts!
