How many steps do you take a day? It is recommended that one takes at least 10,000 steps a day to maintain a healthy metabolism. As an office worker, we tend to average only a measly 3000 steps. That is a miserable 30%! Indeed, we are so far behind it is actually alarming. This stasis has led to a staggering 6 in 10 Australians being overweight and worse, is even projected to steadily increase. Such dismal statistics must be given focus and not simply be brushed aside as it forecasts an impending onslaught of health issues. Being overweight, one faces a startling disarray of health risks such as cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal disorders and even some forms of cancer. It is definitely about time we do something to curb and turn the tide on this worrying trend.
More often than not, we find ourselves chained to our deskbound jobs or slugged lazily on a couch. This burns only a pathetic 42 calories per 30 minutes. To poignantly illustrate how glaringly insufficient this is, a Mars bar contains 242 calories. This means it takes close to a staggering 3 hours just to burn off a bar of chocolate! Feel the urgency, ramp up your metabolism and go for a run! Even running at a leisurely pace has been shown to burn 465 calories per 30 minutes, a whooping 10 times more than sitting. Hearteningly, the running culture has been gaining much traction in Australia, with an astounding ~2000 Running Events in 2015 alone. Be part of all the hype and action! There is no better time than now to get healthy and shave off those extra calories.
