Step It Up for Better Health Today

By Genevieve Cunningham

Most people really want to improve their overall health. As a whole, we want to feel good in the skin we're in. We want to have energy, maintain a proper weight, and feel strong and capable in our daily lives. But we often overthink our quest for health. If we're not severely restricting our diets or breaking a serious sweat, we assume we're not really making any progress. Luckily, nothing could be further from the truth. Improving your health may be as simple as moving your feet! If you're ready to move your health in the right direction, take a look at how you can get started with some simple steps -- literally!

Count Your Steps

Counting your steps might sound like a lot of work, but it can be incredibly easy. You don't have to count every step in your mind as you walk from place to place. All you need is an app on your phone or a pedometer. These devices will count your steps for you. You'll be able to make and change goals and keep track of how you're doing. You can join walking challenges, set competitions with friends, or keep the information to yourself. Start counting your steps, and you'll easily get more movement in your daily life. 

Schedule Nature Walks

Nature walks are a great way to relax, unwind, and get in some exercise all at the same time. Getting outdoors is so good for both mental and physical health. And since nature walks can be challenging, it's also a good way to lose weight, build muscle, and meet various fitness and health goals. You can take your pedometer to count your steps along the way. Or you can throw your phone in your backpack and just enjoy nature. If you want to step it up in a fun and truly beneficial way, nature walks may be just what you need to get moving in the right direction. 

Keep It Fun

One of the most important parts about any exercise is the fun factor. Do you enjoy your routine? If the answer is no, then you need a new routine! And believe it or not, walking can definitely be fun. If you want to keep it entertaining, consider asking some friends to go with you. Or maybe you could join a fun run/walk that is supporting a cause you're passionate about. Another great option is to make a map of trails you want to try, and then mark them off the list as you give them a try. If you want to step it up, make sure that it's fun, and the rest will fall into place.

If you want to take steps toward better health, start by taking more steps in your daily life. It's easy, effective, and could even be fun. Use these tips to step it up in your life and in your health as soon as today.
