activity ideas to get more steps in gardening

1. Group dance class will get in more steps

What it is:

Coordinate a group of friends to take dance class together. You’ll enjoy the new experience and feel compelled to show up when your friends expect you.

Get started:

Discover unique ways to increase your step count with unconventional dance styles like bungee dancing, modern, tap, or electro swing and add fun and flair to your workout routine. 

For an activity that will keep you on your toes, like dance, make sure your footwear can take the extra steps. Consider a high-quality orthotic insert that allows incredible flexibility and support like Premium Orthotic’s Solelay.

2. Gardening or Property Maintenance

What it is: 

Gardening and property maintenance involve activities like planting, weeding, mowing, and trimming, which require movement and physical exertion.

Get started: 

Break up gardening tasks into smaller sessions throughout the week. Aim to spend 15-30 minutes each day tending to your garden or yard. You'll not only increase your step count but also enjoy the beauty of your outdoor space.

3. Functional Training

What it is: 

Functional training focuses on movements that mimic everyday activities, such as squatting, bending, and lifting, to improve strength, flexibility, and coordination.

Get started: 

This is a great example of a low-impact form of exercise. Incorporate functional exercises into household chores. For example, instead of bending over at the waist, dip into a squat while loading the dishwasher or do lunges while vacuuming. Will it look strange? Probably! But you'll turn mundane tasks into mini-workouts and get lots of extra benefits like added stamina and energy.

4. Metaverse fitness

What it is: 

The Metaverse is a virtual reality environment with futuristic or mythological landscapes where you can go through obstacle courses, do yoga, and more. Ever wanted slice flying obstacles in outer space? Well, good news: You don’t have to know the world’s best travel agent or have a SpaceOne connection to have this experience. 

Get started: 

Invest in a virtual reality headset and explore fitness-focused VR games and experiences. Whether it's boxing, dancing, or exploring virtual landscapes, you'll forget you're even exercising!

5. Honey Do Lists 

What it is: 

Traditionally, these are the to-do lists that partners write for their significant other. It’s sort of like their saying, Honey, please do this…and that turned into “honey do list”. Usually, the list involves tasks and chores around the house, ranging from home repairs and organization to cleaning and decluttering.

Get started: 

Turn your to-do list into a step challenge. Tackle as many jobs as you can. To make it interesting, wear your step tracker to see just how many steps you took. At the end of the day, you’ll have tackled two important things: the list and your steps.

With these 10 activity ideas, you'll be well on your way to increasing your step count and embracing a more active lifestyle. So slip in your inserts, lace up your sneakers, and step outside your comfort zone, and let's get moving!
