Taking 8,000 steps – even indoors – is linked to lower mortality

New research from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institute on Aging and the National Cancer institute found “compared with people who walk 4,000 steps (roughly two miles) a day, those who walk 8,000 steps (four miles) a day are about half as likely to die in the next 10 years for any reason, including cardiovascular disease and cancer.”

There are even greater benefits as the number of steps increased. Now is the time to burn the circuits up on your Fitbits and Apple Watches!
