Also, there was an average of 153 minutes per day for mildmoderate intensity activity (including standing and walking), which would surpass the standard set of 150 or more minutes per week. 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!
