8 Surprisingly Easy Ways to Take More Steps
Tracking daily steps has become trendy and for good reason: It’s one of the easiest ways to walk yourself to even better health, which can translate into an abundance of creative energy and improved sleep, among other awesome benefits. So don’t let your activity tracker or new Fitbit go to waste. Instead try these expert tips and tricks that are guaranteed to make you move more without even realizing it!
1. Downsize the water bottle or mug you use at home or the office. Go for a walk to fill it up whenever it’s empty. If you aim to drink seven to eight glasses of water per day, you’ll get in plenty of extra steps while staying ultra-hydrated.
2. Become an early bird. Oakley Ambassador AJ Govoni suggests taking a six to seven minute power walk before your workout, or while waiting for your class to begin. For double duty, do the same at the end of class and you may squeeze an extra mile or more into your day!
3. Turn your coffee catch-up sesh into an opportunity to rack up steps. The hour you’d spend sitting is just as much fun when walking with a friend with a delish drink in hand.
