Are you ready for Steptember? What is that clever play on words all about, you might be asking? The organization America On the Move (AOM) is encouraging everyone to take steps towards a healthier way of life this month, by walking 2000 more steps daily and eating 100 fewer calories a day. This is a national movement, growing community by community. The month of September might be almost half over, but it is never too late to take the steps toward living a healthier life. Little steps daily will help you reach your goals of healthier living and when you sign up for the program you can opt to get daily e-mail tips, which are so encouraging.
Here's a tip I received recently:
Thinking about starting a walking routine? Research shows that walking can help prevent many leading causes of illness, improve the quality of your sleep, elevate your mood, decrease tension headaches, and improve the appearance of your skin by increasing circulation. It's also a great way to manage your weight and get active with family and friends. So what are you waiting for? Add 2000 steps to your day and start enjoying all the healthy benefits of walking!
See what I mean? That is a totally doable and motivational tip! Plus you can track your exercise on the site, as well as find like minded folks trying to lead the healthy life too.
Here's a little more motivation. When you register for Steptember you will be eligible to win fun prizes like an iPod shuffle (daily prize) and the grand prize of a $500 gift card from Dick's Sporting Goods.
See you out walking!
