Trying to become more active? Or just motivated by numbers? Get a pedometer and aim for a 10,000 step per day goal. That's roughly equivalent to 5 miles. Studies have shown that using a pedometer boosted people's activity by 27%. Anything counts - park further from the store and walk. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, pace as you talk on the telephone, take laps around the living room while the commercials run. And at the end of the day, take note of how all those little extras add up!
