10,000 Steps Program

10,000 Steps is a free health promotion program that encourages the use of step-counting pedometers to monitor your daily physical activity levels.

The ‘10,000 steps’ goal puts a focus on the accumulation of activity across the whole day. With continual advances in technology and our workplaces becoming more sedentary it now takes a concerted effort to make active choices. Some ideas are:

  • Walk and talk with a colleague instead of emailing
  • Parking the car further away from the entrance to shops
  • Walk to the corner store for milk and the paper

It is sometimes easier to make these choices when you have a motivational tool such as a pedometer reminding you how many, or how little steps you have done for the day.
