10 goals challenge - Aim for 1,000 more steps

Emma White - Nutritionist

Goal of the day – Do at least 1,000 more steps than you did yesterday

Walking is one of the easiest and cheapest ways for us to get active through the day. Many of us like to aim for that golden 10,000 step count – but the most important thing is to progress from where you are personally. If you tend to average 5,000 steps per day, aim for 6,000 instead to gradually push yourself forward with your progress. Any activity you can get in will have benefits for your heart, bones, and joint health – so just get moving and try to up those steps! Getting out in the fresh air to meet friends or family for a walk is also great for our mental health – just as important as our physical health – so slip on your walking shoes and head outdoors today.
