I have posted on this subject before, but since my degree is in Exercise Science I have to bring it up from time to time…exercise. Yes, there, I said it. As a freelance writer, chances are good that getting enough physical activity in on a daily basis is quite a challenge. That said, if you can create simple goals for yourself and work toward them, at least you’ll be going in the right direction.
Do you know how many steps a day experts recommend you take for health? 10,000. Do you know how many you take? One simple device that can help you become more active is the pedometer. You clip it to your waistband and it counts the amount of steps that you take each day. (Sedentary people may only average between 1,000 and 3,000 steps per day.) A good way to increase your activity level is to invest in one of these, wear it for a week and record your step count. Then, gradually try to increase it–a little bit at a time.
