Tips for making your 10,000 steps a day more interesting

We all know that walking can boost our mood and improve our physical health. But sometimes getting the recommended number of steps can be dull, especially when there are other things you’d rather be doing. To help make your exercise a bit more interesting, try these tips:

Do something productive. It often feels like we’re juggling too many things, so it can be tempting to put off your walk when you have more urgent tasks grabbing your attention. Multitask on your walk by incorporating some productivity into your daily steps. Use a voice recorder app on your phone to dictate your grocery list or capture ideas for your upcoming presentation at work.

Listen to something entertaining. Escape from a busy day by listening to something you enjoy. Featuring commercial-free music; artist-dedicated channels; podcasts and the best in talk, entertainment and comedy programming, you’ll never run out of exciting listening options on the SiriusXM app. Whether it’s a truecrime podcast like My Favourite Murder, a stand-up set featuring fan-favourite comedians such as Kevin Hart and Trevor Noah, or the latest sports news, you can always find something that sparks your interest.

Incorporate an activity. Walking can be more fun when you add a goal or destination to your route. Try exploring new areas in your neighbourhood or checking out new public art installations. You can even reward yourself with a visit to a small business or by picking up a to-go treat from your favourite local restaurant. You’ll be surprised at what you can discover.
