Did you know many fitness and health experts say walking 10,000 steps a day is the “magic number” to lose weight and feel more energized? If you don’t have time to go to the gym, you can try to reach that number in your day-to-day life and go green, too. Skip taxis in major cities and walk instead (or use public transport, which requires some walking to and from stations). When running errands, choose a shopping center that has several stores and walk between stores rather than driving to several. Experts say downloading a long podcast to your phone can help you walk more without realizing it, too.
