1. Wear a Pedometer or Use a Pedometer App: Get yourself a pedometer or add a pedometer app to your mobile phone and use it every day. This inexpensive tool is a terrific motivator. It helps you keep up with exactly how much you are actually moving. You also might be covering more ground than you expected. Being able to monitor your movement will help you to move even more. Many people feel that if they see actual numbers, it’s more like concrete evidence of what you are accomplishing. Try adding 500 extra steps the next day. This is equivalent to about five minutes of steady walking.
