Many of us are challenged by finding time to move more during our day. We are too drained and spent with everything else going on in our lives’ that it just doesn’t happen.
Making a pedometer part of your daily accessories is a great way to motivate yourself to get your body in motion. It’s a tiny reminder that tracks the steps you’ve taken throughout your day.
A great thing to do is to give yourself a goal each week. Lets say your starting goal is to walk 10,000 steps a day. Once you’ve achieved that, make the next weeks’ goal 11,000 steps. Your personal trainer Portland would say to keep progressing so you’re challenging yourself.
With a pedometer you may find yourself finding the farthest parking spot instead of the closest one, walking to the grocery store instead of driving, and walking over to talk to your co-worker instead of sending them an email.
