10K Steps A Day, Everyday!

Do you know how beneficial 10.000 footsteps a day are for your general health and well-being? And do you know how easy they can be incorporated into your daily life without loosing much time a day?

Being active is key to our health, well-being and happiness. It all connects. Our energy needs to flow in order to be able to thrive in life.

The majority of the world is in lockdown or under restricted circumstances due to the covid_19 measures at this time, yet we are able leave our houses and enjoy running or walking outside/in nature. And this is what I am doing on a daily basis, at almost all weather conditions, such as today in winter wonderland in Gstaad, wearing my super comfortable, water- and wind-resistant, warm and practical Lululemon Snow Warrior Parka.

 

The Health Benefits of Walking or Running 10K Steps A Day

  • It boosts your heart health and helps stabilize your blood sugar.
  • It strengthens your lungs.
  • It improves your concentration and creativity at work and daily activities
  • It boosts your mood – especially walking in nature and in sunshine.
  • It strengthens your bones and improves muscle growth (additional to training).
  • It keeps your energy flowing and boosts your energy levels as much as your immune system.
  • It improves the flexibility of your body, mind and soul.

Tips For Including 10K Steps To Your Day

  • Dress comfortably and weather compatible.
  • Bring a bottle of water.
  • Try to walk/run in the morning or in your lunch break (the later the day, the less light and motivation and time you’ll have).
  • Track your steps with an app, such as the Apple Health app on your iPhone or the Apple Watch.
  • Walk and move whenever you can: to meetings, to shopping, to work, in between your work day.
  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
  • Take your phone calls on walks.
  • Take your meetings to walks.
  • Listen to audio books on your walks (as opposed to reading them on your couch).
