Using a pedometer all day can help you see how many steps you take.
If you like to walk, run, or play games like basketball or tennis, you can use a pedometer - a small device that automatically counts the number of steps you take. Then just record the amount in your activity log. Different people will have different daily step goals:
- Girls 6 to 17 - At least 11,000 steps a day
- Boys 6 to 17 - At least 13,000 steps a day
- Adults 18 or older - At least 8,500 steps a day
