Self-Care Challenge Day 9: Walk 5,000 steps


“Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.”
Edward Stanley


👋 Hello and welcome to Day 9 of the 21-Day Self-Care Challenge.

💡 Each day for 21 days we give you an action to complete that will help you to take care of yourself so that you can better take care of the other aspects of your life effectively.

Each of our tasks focuses on either physical, mental or emotional self-care.

You can either follow the tasks as specified or individualize them.

We suggest scheduling off some self-care time in your diary each night so that you keep your meeting with yourself.


Day 9

Today we are going to focus on our physical health. 

Walk 5,000 steps today

Take a stroll

We have discussed the importance of daily habits extensively over on Sleekgeek.

Most recently we looked at the importance of daily movement habits, specifically, walking. 

Moving more throughout the day is one of the easiest and most reliable ways of losing weight and dramatically improving your health.

Today’s task is to aim to walk 4,000 – 6,000 steps. 

According to research on public health those who take 5,000 steps a day or less are considered sedentary and at a higher risk for obesity, disease, and early death compared to those who take 10,000 steps a day. 

If you take 10,000 steps or more you are considered active and will typically have less body fat and better overall health.

How to track your steps

Option 1: Pedometer or Fitness Tracking Device:

If you have some kind of pedometer or fitness tracker that tracks your steps, then you are in luck. This challenge will be easy for you to take part in!

Option 2: Smartphone:

Many newer smartphones have their own built-in pedometers. If you aren’t sure, just search on Google for your phone make + built-in pedometer. For example “iPhone 6 built-in pedometer“.

You should find some websites showing you how to use it if your phone does indeed have a built-in pedometer. If you’re still unsure, ask in the Sleekgeek Health Revolution Support Group on Facebook. (link) 

Option 3: Treadmill:

If you are a regular gym-goer and plan to get most of your steps in on the treadmill, then most treadmills will track your steps. This is not ideal because we would obviously like you to be out and about, getting in more movement throughout the day – but it’s better than nothing!

Option 4: Estimate:

The average person walking at a brisk and determined pace can expect to walk these number of steps based on distance and time walked:
