Are you getting your steps in every day? It’s the best way to reach and maintain a healthy weight. And lucky for you, your Healthy Lifestyles program has a built-in steps tracker! You can set a steps goal and then record your activity throughout each day. If 10,000 steps a day isn’t realistic for you yet, then try setting a goal of walking an extra 500 steps each day until you reach your goal.
A healthy weight isn’t the only benefit of walking. Here are a few more ways it can help your overall health and well-being:
- Improves sleep and helps boost your mood.
- Strengthens your heart and lungs.
- Lowers your risk of chronic illness, like heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.
- Helps keep your bones strong and joints healthy.
- Keeps your brain sharp and can even lower the risk of Alzheimer’s.
