We're gonna keep this short and simple. Just some helpful hints and motivational ways to make a few changes in your daily life.
So, we've outlined 10 simple ways to help you along the way. All you have to do now, is remember them.
1. Chat more to your colleagues.
Face-to-face chat means you'll have to get up off your chair and find a friend! Instant chat and email are your enemy in hitting those 7,000 steps.
2. Drink more water.
Beyond being a healthy way to hydrate, you're probably going to need to take a few bathroom breaks. Again, every step counts!
3. Take the Metro.
We see a huge difference in the amount of steps that people take when using public transport versus taking their car. If you can't do it everyday, then perhaps set aside the last day of the week as "Metro Day".
4. Walk whilst you talk.
Walking meeting are a great way to get the creative juices flowing, it increased attention, and allows you all to clock up more steps. We love what these guys have organized. http://www.yasmarinacircuit.com/en/fitness/fitness-activities/walk-2015
5. Stop the lift!
Take the elevator to a floor two above or two below your office, and walk the rest. If you keep this going throughout the day, your steps will steadily add up.
6. Park quickly.
Instead of driving to the doors of the mall and waiting for a space, just park and walk to the doors. Not the usual thing we see in Dubai, but certainly a way to win today's Trybe.
7. Shop more.
It sounds crazy, but we notice that mall shopping days end in serious Styck steps. We're talking about 15,000 - 20,000 steps in pursuit of those new shoes!
8. Aim for Par.
Take up a sport that results in walking! Sports like golf mean you'll end up learning a new skills whilst remaining active. And there's likely a reward for playing the most frustrating game on earth!
9. Challenge friends.
Buddying-up makes a huge difference to the amount of steps you take in a day. Challenge each other to complete 7,000 steps per day, with the winner every week buying the lunch on Thursday!
10. The world is your playground.
View your world in steps, make everything you do about reaching that next level of steps. 2,000, 5,000, 7,000, 20,000; Whatever your next goal is, every obstacle in your way is a chance to make today a winning day!
