Yet, life is hectic and finding the time to have a proper workout can be difficult. How can you start to change?
Starting with a casual walk a few times a week can begin to break the routine because increased movement and activity is important. It is also a simple way to be active. Tracking your steps is another tool that will instantly put your active day in perspective. You can begin tracking your steps with MaximusLife.
Seeing the stats of how many steps you take in a day will help keep you in track to reach activity goals. At the same time you will be taking care of your health, mind, and donating to charity!
The app actually counts your steps by using your phone if you don’t have an activity tracker. Simply carry your phone (and keep it charged) or check-out activity trackers that keep counting even if you leave your phone at home.
