Step it up with an activity tracker

By Mayo Clinic Staff

You can buy an activity monitor — available in a range of prices — and begin counting your steps. To get started, wear your activity tracker throughout the day for about a week. Add up the total number of steps and divide by seven. This is your baseline. From there, you can start setting short-term goals, such as adding 1,000 steps a day. A long-term goal may be walking 10,000 steps a day.
