10,000 steps a day

A year ago I had a pretty unreliable approach to daily fitness, that is until I discovered the pedometer.  Since then I have worked consistently at achieving at least 10,000 steps a day and its worked wonders.  It’s no longer possible to kid myself that i’ve done enough as I get a easy to interpret and reliable feedback on my daily exercise. 

My life is one of avoiding vicious circles and trying to turn them into virtuous ones and walking is perfect for that. 

Even better for me is that I live in a great place for walking and am able to do a lot of work while walking by recording notes to myself, listening to recordings of company briefings and listening to A LOT of podcasts.

This article provides another perspective and a link to some supporting research.

  1. I also find it very easy to kid myself about how far I have walked. When I do my morning walk I sometimes get back in 20 minutes at which point I realise that I have cheated.

    Kepp it up.
