You may have heard the general recommendation to walk 10,000 steps per day. There is nothing magic about this number, but it is a goal to get you started and keep you motivated. You simply start tracking your steps and gradually increase over a period of time.
Many are using this new edit to get their weight under control.

Quick, when was your last date?
Whether it’s been awhile since your last date, or even if it hasn’t, summer is here and it’s the perfect time to reinvigorate your love life. Whether you are a man or woman, gay or straight, single or taken (or anything in between) we all need a little love in our lives for our general well-being.
Love can be felt from various personal relationships, but for the purpose of this article, I’m focusing on romantic love. While it can be easy to overlook, love is a huge part of mental and physical health, general well-being and happinessN. One study, which examined more than 300,000 participants, found people who lack strong personal relationships increased their risk of premature death from all causes by 50%.
That’s an effect on mortality risk greater than obesity or physical inactivity and nearly as bad as smoking everyday. Wow.
Though I’m in the “single” category, I’m blessed to have extremely close relationships with friends and family (*wipes sweat from brow) … but in that quest to find my permanent partner in crime, I’m always down to try out a new date activity!
