Step Challenge

08/07/2016

Knowing how many steps we take each day is one way to measure how active we really are. By building up the number of steps we take, we can all increase our physical activity without having to try too hard.

The Public Health Agency is encouraging people across Northern Ireland to think about the number of steps they take every day. By counting the number of steps you already take and setting yourself increasing targets, you can improve your health and wellbeing.

To start tracking your steps, you can use your smartphone.
If you have a smartphone without an in-built step tracker, you can still use a pedometer and manually input your step count into the weight-mate app.

In the Trust we are supporting the campaign and if you work with overweight people or those in disadvantage areas in need of support please look at the website for more information www.choosetolivebetter.com or www.publichealth.hscni.net/news/step-better-health-new-campaign

We have a limited stock of pedometers for the campaign and all other resources are downloadable from the website.
