Pedometer also motivates you to walk more by setting goals and seeing progress. A common goal for walkers is 10,000 miles a day - there are 2,000 steps in a mile so if you walk 10,000 steps you will have walked 5 miles that day. Less than 5,000 steps a day is considered sedentary and 5,000 to 7,500 steps a day is considered normal for a typical daily activity.
Walking is a low impact activity that requires no gym equipment, just a good pair of shoes. Anytime of day is good for walking as long as you are walking in a safe place and have reflective gear for walking during dusk or at night. Walking is a great way to maintain overall health and just walking 30 minutes a day can improve your cardiovascular health.

If you are short of your 10,000 daily step goal you can always take your dog for anther walk around the neighborhood.
