Did you know that the average American only gets about 5,000 steps per day? This is the equivalent of 2.5 miles. A minimum of 10,000 steps is the recommended amount of activity, for maintaining physical and mental well-being. Ten thousand steps is the recommendation because, unless you have a very active profession, you most likely won’t reach 10,000 without putting in some effort and incorporating physical activity into your lifestyle. Fitbit is one of the highest-quality pedometers, for the best price. You can buy a Fitbit as a wristband, small waistband clip, or a watch.  



Tracking our steps may seem unnatural, but given the number of Americans with careers that require sitting for extended periods of time, a pedometer may give us that extra bit of awareness. So how will getting your steps make a difference in your life? You’ll notice:

  • A decrease in mental stress and anxiety
  • An increase in energy and focus
  • An improved mood
  • Improved sleep
  • Quicker, better results when treating and reversing chronic diseases with a plant-based diet
  • An improvement in mental acuity

Ten thousand steps may seem daunting, but in reality, it requires some effort, but not too much. Lots of small lifestyle changes, combined, can give you the steps you need for optimal health. In addition to your 30-minute walk, jog, run, or whatever form of exercise you choose, try including some of these small changes in your routine:

  • Park toward the back of the parking lot
  • Take the stairs
  • Spend 20 minutes before lunch taking a walk
  • If you sit the majority of the workday, every hour or two, stand up and walk around for a few minutes
  • Multi-task: take a walk while you’re on the phone, listening to a podcast, or even catching up on the news
