Count the number of steps you take everyday

luxembourgPosted on 01 January 2050 by Luxembourg Expats

You might have heard of 10,000 steps per day is the right number to set as your daily target. A goal of 10,000 steps per day was created as a promotion by a pedometer company in Japan in the 1960s and it became popular as it was adopted by walking clubs. The number wasn't based on research—it just sounded good.

It's a good idea to find out how many steps a day you walk. A study found a threshold for reducing the risk of premature death is 4,500 steps per day. Even a small increase in steps per day above being inactive can make a difference in health. 

Walking helps to reduce your risk of these common health problems:

  • Heart disease
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Depression

How far will you go today? Your goal will depend on your starting point. But nearly everyone can reap the benefits of walking more, step by step.
