How many steps do you take in a day?
Recently, I came across an article which says 10,000 steps a day keeps you fit. Is it practical to take 10,000 steps a day? I presume, on an average, I might be taking 3000 to 4000 steps a day. This is a rough estimation as I am not using any gadgets to count the number of steps?
How many steps do you take?
Here are my stats for steps. I take roughly 7,000 per day. I am a manner and spend most of my day on my feet between meetings and buildings
I have a fitbit and my goal everyday is 10,000 steps. I walk a lot for my job, but only work 3 days a week, so on those days I easily get to 10,000. On my days off I workout and run, but don't walk as much thereafter and get about 7,000 steps on those days. Walking is a great way to stay fit! Invest in a fitbit to keep track. You wont regret it!
I've worn a Jawbone UP for the past year and tend to average between 7,500 and 8,000 steps/day.
This is doing nothing particularly special, but I do work in a large office in an urban area, and I walk around it a lot during the day. I find myself going to the far printer or taking the long way to the restroom. I will typically leave work with between 5-6k steps, and then even if I don't do much the rest of the evening I'll still accumulate the remaining 2-3k around the house.
If I go to the gym or take my dog for a walk it's not uncommon for me to have 11-12k steps in a day.
So, yes, it's quite practical to take 10,000 steps a day, but unless you're working out daily you might have to get creative with how you accumulate them all.
If you are leading an active life, it is not difficult to take 10,000 steps a day. We don't really keep on counting our steps. Do we!
But if are in the habit of going for long and brisk morning/ evening walks, it is very easy to complete those 10,000 steps. I had counted my steps once when I had gone for an evening walk.
I have my daily goal set as 10,000 steps (on FitBit) and I do actually have to go for extra walks/get up and exercise if I want to meet it every day. When I don't check my FitBit to see where I'm at and just go on about my day without thinking about my goal I usually take about 6,000 steps.
Previously I used to walk a lot for catching my bus and then after getting down, from there to reach my office. That is 3000 metres which count to 6000 steps. Besides that the walking in own home between rooms and to the milk dairy and other walks. So, it is possible to walk daily 10,000 steps for a young person and even for an aged man.
I never even thought of counting my steps. I really doubt it though that I have taken 10,000 steps. Maybe when I was young and was chasing my kiddos around all day, but not now.
I have never counted how many steps I take daily. I am physically quite active as I walk regularly 40 minutes a day most days of the week and do weight training in my home gym. Besides, I move around a lot during the day, avoiding delegating daily chores to others.
The experts unanimously agree that one should at least take 10,000 steps a day to keep fit. But there is a caveat that if an individual takes regularly 10,000 steps daily, one is likely to get conditioned to it, which may lessen one's level of fitness. Therefore, one should appropriately increase the number of steps beyond 10,000 to maintain a good level of fitness. Alternatively, one can add a variety to one's walking schedule to up its intensity in order to avoid conditioning.
I am not measuring though... But I am sure I am not taking not even 4000 steps a day.

Is it realistic to make $40 a day off of 10,000 views daily give or take? Before HubPages suffered from Google Algorithm updates in 2012; I remember doing very well with views on another account, but I don't think my CPM was that high.

One of my hubs has hit 10,000 pins! It's racing ahead of my others with the next closest sitting at 4,000 pins.Yes, this is why it's a good idea to create images made with Pinterest users in mind. Pinterest is now my top traffic source after Google.
