If you are like me, you probably have a hard time getting enough exercise in a day. I recently jumped on the activity tracker bandwagon and found that when I am deep into my work, I get less than 2000 steps in a day! That was a real eye opener for me and I’ve been looking for ways to make getting my 10,000 steps a day easier. There isn’t really a way to make the simple act of walking any easier than it already is, but I know that if it was more enjoyable, I would be more likely to do it. Here are 3 ways I’m making getting my 10,000 steps simpler and more fun.
I’m exploring the world
Since I can’t walk around the world, I am doing it virtually. I got the Virtual Walk app on my phone. It allows me to visit different places around the world as I go for a walk around my neighborhood or on the treadmill. I can explore some of the top tourist destinations in the world including Niagara Falls, the Grand Canyon, and Taj Mahal. Now that makes walking easier in my book!
I’m spending time with my pup
Who loves walking more than a dog? So why not walk with one? Honey, our beagle, goes crazy if I pick up her leash. Seeing her excitement to get out and explore makes me more excited to go for a walk. Sometimes I take her out and we just go where her nose leads us. I let her stop and sniff in one spot for 3 minutes if she wants, and then we catch the smell of a squirrel and speed walk. It is neat to see what grabs her attention.
I’m walking on a cloud
No, not literally. I recently got a pair of Reebok CloudRide DMX walking shoes from Famous Footwear. When a shoe has the word “cloud” in the name, you expect them to be comfy, and these do not disappoint! With the extra time spent on my feet, I wanted to get a comfortable shoe that is also supportive. The Reebok CoudRide DMX has a flexible sole filled with air. They feel like my fluffy slippers but supports like a great walking shoe should. Plus, they are cute!
Want to try these for yourself? The Reebok CloudRide DMX shoes come in white and black and are available at select Famous Footwear locations. Don’t have a location near you? You can buy them online too!
Cloud-like comfort or your money back! If you’re not 100% satisfied, you can return the shoes within 30 days. Pretty cool, right?
