Washing Dishes And Stepping


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When I worked and I took a bathroom break I would march in place to increase my steps. It also works if you are standing on your feet like a cashier, nurse, gardener, or other jobs. The steps add up quickly. Even you you march in place brushing your teeth for two minutes, dish washing, cooking you are getting tons of steps in. Just do it. MOVE!!!

    My back gets sore standing at the sink. Maybe walking on the spot will help; I am going to try it. Thanks for the simple idea, my favourite type.
