I’m passionate about the way your life will improve if you just walk 10,000 steps a day. When I first started doing this, I was maniacal about hitting the goal daily. I’d done it every day of the year. Then on an August evening, I didn’t feel well, got up to go to the bathroom and fainted. I went down planting my skull and nose on the side of the tub. Blood everywhere when I regained consciousness. All worked out but my first thought was how am I going to make my 10,000 steps today. I decided then I had become obsessive and perhaps shooting for an average of 10,000 steps / day made more sense.
Since then I’ve moderated but tracked and consistently met that yearly goal!
Walking in parks, in malls, during meetings and up & down my driveway when needed was the first action that woke me up and helped me see that I needed to change my life and define my rainbow world.
