Fitting more movement into your day


Step tracker

We are all looking for more ways to move. You might want to lose some weight or have a higher energy level throughout the day. But after a few weeks with a vívofit2 or vívosmart you are still struggling to reach those goals. So how do you solve that problem? Here are a few easy ways to build some steps into a daily routine.

Find a friend- A friend always makes walking easier. It can be boring just sitting and talking so why not get up and be active together. Plus having a friend along can make it more enjoyable. You might push each other to go past your step goal too!

Make those breaks count– Finding a longer path to the water fountain and the restroom can be beneficial for your step count. Every hour or two, take 5-10 minutes and take those extra steps. Even a walking meeting can help you tally a few more steps by the end of the day.

Remain standing– Just getting out of your chair for more of the day encourages you to move. Standing can keep you more alert and take some pressure off your back. 

Look indoors – Grab more steps inside your house by cleaning, picking up or just doing laps around your house. All these options are a great way to break up the rhythm of a night. Especially if the weather is poor outside or you’ve been sitting too long on the couch or computer.

What habits have you picked up from your vívofit or vívosmart? Share it with us on our Garmin Fitness social media channels.
