Keep track of the number of steps taken in one week.
Set your target. 500 extra steps per day is a realistic challenge.
Keep at it for at least one full week.
Set yourself a new target for each new week.
Make extra exercise and activity a part of your daily routine.
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!
