Steps to Fitness! By Atlantic/Smith, Cropper & Deeley 9/22/2016 10,000 steps per day! The US Surgeon General has stated that adults should have 10,000 steps a day to be healthy and PRODUCTIVE! People are tracking these steps in a number of different ways from the smart phone to the fitbit. There are competitions on who gets the most steps in our office on a regular basis. Some of us struggle to get to that 10,000 mark - so a few tips: Park your car far from where you are going. Take the stairs rather than an elevator or escalator. Walk your kids to the bus stops (even your teens - they hate this!) Take the dog out for a long walk. Find a friend and Walk and Talk. Thanks for reading. How do you get your steps in?
