It’s tough to find time to hit the gym, but fear not!

Walking is one of the easiest things you can do to help you feel great all year long, but if walking more feels like a lot more for you to do, try splitting it up. For example, you could try 10 minute walks throughout the week if you want to make the idea a bit more palatable.

Here are some tips to add more steps to your everyday activities:

Keep track of your steps

While you’re enjoying your additional time walking, don’t forget to keep counting those steps!

Using a smartphone, a pedometer, or a step counter can help increase your motivation to keep moving, remind you to walk more, help you set goals, help you check how well you did in a given week, and even push you toward getting at least 10,000 steps in per day.
