I have an adult weighted hula hoop and each time around gives me one step count. It is a great tool to use for exercise when it is too cold or rainy to go outside.

I enjoy getting a dog toy and having the dogs chase me in the yard. I get my steps in and so do they. I also walk all around the kitchen island to get those steps in while I'm waiting for my meals to cook.


My trampoline! I love it so much, I feel like a big kid. I set up my mini trampoline in front of the tv and just go for it. I supplement this with walks with my dog, who loves the outdoors and taking stairs instead of escalators 


I love my trampoline too! I play JustDance on it. And I walk my dogs 2 or 3 times a day, depending on the  weather.

I walk while watching TV. On nice days, I park farther away in parking lots. 


Walking in place while brushing my teeth or cooking in kitchen


I would often pace back and forth in the kitchen while preparing breakfast. 


When logged into a zoom meeting I’ll turn my camera off and stand to get some steps in while participating in the meeting. Not as good as going for a walk, but works to get me moving. Daily step goal is 12,000 steps or 5 miles.
