Count Your Steps
While walking may not seem much like exercise, it can help you burn calories and stay in shape. By counting your steps you will have an idea of how far you walk during a typical day and how many calories you burn with regular activity. You can then set goals for yourself and try to add more steps to your daily activity and burn more calories. There are many smartphone apps, smart watches and pedometers that will help you keep track of your steps easily.
