If you’ve been listening to Katy Says, and you should, or you’ve read her book Move Your DNA: Restore Your Health Through Natural Movement, you have a nagging urge to get more nutritious movement into your life. And the number one nutritious movement like getting your vegetables, is walking.
We all know that, right? We all know we should walk more, but who needs to in this day and age. Heck, I just started pre ordering my groceries, so when I pull up to the store, a guy brings it out to me. I’m not being sexist here, it’s always been this same guy, I swear he never leaves the store.
So how do we walk more? I’m a huge fan of gamification, find that extra motivation to move more by turning your movement into a game. This may be more motiviating to those with the competitive gene. I’m pretty sure there is a competitive gene, have you done your 23andme DNA profile yet? But there are a few games out there, where you don’t need to be motivated by kicking another’s ass. 🙂
Side note: I’m writing this, while walking on the treadmill so I can take down my current opponent in BattleSteps.
Ok, I’m just going to create a list here of the games, apps, fitness trackers and anything else I’ve found helpful. If you want more specific information on each one. I’ll be adding more info throughout the week. Otherwise, you can just click on the link of each one to check them out for yourself.
Check back for more walking motivation. As I find new apps I’ll be sure to add them here. If you have any, I’d love to see them in the comments below.
