Where do you begin?

  1. Keep track of the number of steps taken in one week.
  2. Set your target. 500 extra steps per day is a realistic challenge. 
  3. Keep at it for at least one full week.
  4. Set yourself a new target for each new week.
  5. Make extra exercise and activity a part of your daily routine. 
  6. If it’s possible, keep going until you’re walking at least 10,000 steps every day (8,000 steps for 65-plussers). And remember: every step you take, every active movement you make, is more important than pursuing that 10,000 step total. Do what you can!
