Movement in everyday life

Even non-sporty people can get moving on a daily basis. One simple yet powerful change is to walk more often. Take the stairs instead of the elevator and skip the car when it comes to smaller purchases. Run to the bakery instead of taking the car out of the garage, and park your car farther from the workplace and walk the rest of the way.

7,000 to 10,000 steps per day is the experts' recommendation. Tip: Check how many steps you take by consulting a pedometer. These step counters can intrigue and motivate you in equal measure.
