The team at Watchung’s Ultimate Health & Weight Loss knows that diet and exercise are both essential for staying healthy. While the company’s NutriMost system can help you shed pounds, one essential part of keeping those pounds off is regular exercise. Today, many people aim to hit 10,000 steps each day to stay on track with their exercise routines.
Yet, if there’s one thing a nutritionist knows for sure, it’s that working a regular desk job can make it extremely difficult to hit your step goal. Here, the weight loss experts at Ultimate Health & Weight Loss of Central Jersey share their best tips for getting in 10,000 steps, even when you work a regular 9 to 5:
- Take Quick Walks: Taking short walks (think 10 minutes or less) doesn’t simply provide physical benefits; it can also boost your brainpower, too. You’ll come back to your desk reenergized and ready to tackle new challenges, and as an added bonus, you’ll have accumulated about 1,000 steps within 10 minutes or so.
- Skip The Elevator: Of course, if you’re on the 30th floor, it’s not likely that you’ll be on time for work. Ride the elevator part of the way and use the stairs for the rest of the trek.
- Head Out For A Coffee Or Lunch: During a break period or lunchtime, don’t just sit at your desk. Head out for a nutritionist-approved meal or cup of coffee to rack up some extra steps.
- Rethink Your Emails: Need to get a message to a coworker? Consider walking to their cube or office instead. Face-to-face communication can be a mood booster for you both, and you’ll be even closer to that 10,000 step goal!
- Set Phone Alerts: Set periodic alerts on your phone or desktop to remind you to get up and move every so often.
Of course, all the exercise in the world is ineffective if it’s combined with poor eating habits. Only good nutrition can help you achieve long-term weight control.
