Do you move enough for your Health?
Experts say that 10,000 steps a day is a good number to strive for, however any amount of movement beyond what you are currently doing may result in overall health improvements. Studies have proven that people managed to increase their daily steps to at least 10,000/day experienced significant health benefits, such as reductions in blood pressure and improvements in blood glucose levels. Increasing your movement can also lead to improved fitness, strength, and a great way to de-stress!
