10 Ways to Make Your Goal
If you're ready to add more steps to your day, don't worry -- walking on one hours-long journey isn't the only way to get to 10,000 (plus it only takes about an hour and a half to do it all at once). Here are 10 of our favorite ways to sneak in steps all day long, so pick up a pedometer or other form of wearable fitness tech and get moving:

1. Always take the stairs instead of the elevator.

2. Get up and move during commercial breaks when watching television.

3. Set an alarm on your phone to get up and walk around every hour, especially if you work sitting at a desk all day.

4. Park at the back of the lot when running errands.

5. If you can, run your errands on foot.

6. Turn a favorite movie into a game, adding in exercises for when a certain character is on screen.

7. Complete a calorie-torching HIIT workout.

8. Take your dog for a walk.

9. Step side to side when brushing your teeth, styling your hair, etc. in the morning.

10. Go for a short walk on your lunch break -- it's better for your digestive system and metabolism to get moving after a meal.
