You can read our inaugural blog post here. In it, we discuss the general benefits of an overall healthy lifestyle and why we encourage it with incentives. Today, we’ll be focused on the benefits of cardio, specifically looking at the upside of getting your daily steps in.
Why Use An App To Track Steps?
Some may wonder why counting steps is important. Sure, they may find it to be a redundant task. But, are you aware of what you’re securing when you get at least 10,000 steps in a day? The short answer, better health.
An application to track these numbers helps to keep you on track and aware of your progress. This not only keeps you informed, it also keeps you accountable and motivated. Seeing those milestones on your app may push you to go even harder, within a safe boundary of course.
Walking For Weight Loss
One of the biggest reasons for upping your step count is weight loss. Whether for cosmetic, or medical reasons, this approach will help contribute to your overall better health. Shedding some excess pounds can help to correct obesity, which itself leads to a host of other possible ailments and diseases.
If you’re aiming for 10,000 steps, try doing 30% of it at an increased rate of intensity. This helps you reach the goal and go an extra step, figuratively speaking. Don’t overdo it though, as this can lead to injuries that can stall your progress.
Walking To Help With Meditation
One of the best ways to ensure solid overall health is to meditate. Opening up and cleaning out your thoughts should go rank pretty close to physical activity on your priority list.
Your mental health is just as big of a part of your overall health as any physical efforts. Intentional walking gives you an opportunity to compartmentalize your thoughts in a healthy way. If you’re having trouble focusing your thoughts, just think about what you’re going to do once the interest on your account rises in your favor. There’s an imagination well spent.
