Take 10,000 steps every day

You may have read that you’re supposed to take 10,000 steps every day to maintain a healthy body. But what if you find this target difficult to achieve? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Scientists at Oregon State University have found that the average American only walks between 5,000 and 7,000 steps daily. The good news is that taking just 3000 steps at moderate or high intensity and limiting your sedentary time comes with notable health benefits. So if you can’t manage 10,000 steps in a day, walk faster and sit less.
