None of us accrued even close to averaging 10,000 steps per day! Some days more steps were definitely taken than  others, but average for our group was a bit more than half of that, at about 5576 steps per day. All members of the group participate in exercise and/or physical activity. Activities include walking, strength  training, cycling, rock climbing and boxing. Strength activity guidelines are also met, with strength exercise being  performed 2 or more days per week. Being ESS majors, we are all pretty aware of what barriers there can be fitting in exercise or physical activity into  daily life. Judging by our compiled data, it would appear that, even being busy students with jobs, homework, etc.­ that exercise and physical activity are priorities. Even if it is just taking the dogs for a walk, or doing extra walking  PA: Up Close and Personal ESS 3350 10 February 2015 Andrea Tidwell M. Scott Draper David Halterman while completing errands, each one of us had activity for each of the days we tracked. The weekend (especially  Sunday) appears to be for more leisurely physical activity, yet it was still accrued. The reasons for participation for each of us are many. Stress relief is a main and top reason­you simply feel better  when you work out. On some level, we all want to look better, which also relieves stress and just feels better. We all like to feel good about our appearance.  None of us ever feels that exercise is particularly convenient, but perception is everything in this regard. We view it  as more of a release and benefit, rather than a task, which makes it easier to do. Even if just focusing on the end  result and nothing else is the only motivating thing that day, so be it. One area where we, and most others, do not quite achieve enough, is taking 10,000 steps per day. It does not sound  like a lot, but it is! It is much harder to accrue than any of us thought. This is where having a pedometer on your  phone, or wearing a Fit Bit can be hugely beneficial. We all are more conscious of how much more we need to move and walk more, in addition to the exercise we perform. We found that a smartphone pedometer can be somewhat  more problematic than one you might wear. If you do not have your phone with you the entire time, you’re going to  take steps that are not recorded, which all of us experienced. It probably still did not put us up to 10,000 steps, but  our numbers were likely higher than recorded. Time can, and always will be, an issue for any one of us, at almost any given moment. Again, being students,  holding down jobs, family responsibilities, etc. stretches our schedules. But we get creative, make it a priority, and  use the resources available to us. Using the gym at school, at work, or bringing a change of clothes to stop into the  gym on the way home are all strategies used to schedule exercise into a busy life. And life is ultimately better when  we do!
