An Australian expert reveals that to maintain a healthy lifestyle it is necessary to give between 3 to 5 thousand steps per day.
For more than 40 years, the idea that for a healthier life it is necessary to give 10,000 steps a day.According to a study carried out in Australia this idea does not entirely correspond to reality.
“People had in mind that 10,000 was a good number. However, there was no connection to how it affected our health, but no one had ever thought about what it takes to do 10,000 steps a day,” said Adrian Bauman, a professor of Public Health at the University of Sydney.
According to the research carried out by the academic, in order to fulfill the 10 thousand steps it was necessary to walk from 1:30 a.m. to 1:45 a.m. every day.But if we think that for a healthy lifestyle we only spend 30 minutes of our time practicing physical exercise, we find that 3/5 thousand steps are enough to reach this recommendation according to JUSTINSHOES.NET.
“The goal of the 10,000 steps is a way to ensure the realization of 3/5 a thousand steps every day,” explains Bauman, who points out that many people can not reach the 10,000 steps each day.
Despite the conclusions of his study, the expert leaves the following warning: not all steps are the same.
“We take many steps every day – to the refrigerator, to the bus or from one room to another – but this does not mean that they impact our health. It is necessary to walk steadily or to practice a certain activity continuously to receive the benefits That is spoken, “he concludes.
