Opt for the longest path

Longest Path for Running

Which path do people take when walking over to a place? They almost always take the shortest path except when their mission is to burn more calories.

Japan was the inventor of the 10,000 steps concept. Try taking 10,000 steps in a day and monitor your progress with an android or iPhone app. This app will monitor your steps mechanically, and you should carry it while moving for checking your progress over the day. A person who weighs anywhere from 150 to 200 pounds lbs will burn some 400 to 550 calories with 10,000 steps.

Walking 10,000 steps is very easy. Just move more while going about your everyday errands. An example is taking a walk around a department store ahead of loading your cart. Another example is walking around your block before heading for the mailbox.

Or you can stroll about your block for a few minutes. Fifteen minutes of ambling will burn almost three times the amount of calories than doing nothing. And a post-meal walk is going to aid in digestion.
