Prevent Getting Coronavirus Tips: Wash your hands frequently, cough or sneeze carefully, avoid touching your face, keep your distance and stay home if you’re ill.
Indoor air pollution can be a health problem, particularly in wintertime. With windows closed up to keep the house warm you have less fresh air ventilation and more harmful pollutants in your home.
Your Own Pedometer Walking Program
Starting a walking program is an easy and fun activity. Like anything else that we really want to do, it is best to set a time to walk so that you don’t allow other things to crowd out your walking time. Mr. Pedometer suggests using a pedometer to track your steps and measure your activity time. He says to wear your pedometer for a week and go about your regular routine. Write down your steps and activity time each day. At the beginning of the second week, increase your steps by 20% and work your way up each week until you are walking 6000-10,000 steps a day. 10,000 Steps-a-day is the recommended step count to maintain good health.
It is always more fun to walk with people, so find a walking buddy or look for walking groups in your community. If that doesn’t work, consider starting your own World Walk To Wellness walking group. (See information on how to start your own walking group below). Walking and talking makes the time fly by and being outdoors helps you relax and unwind all while getting in your steps.
