Interesting research from activity tracker data from older adults shows that those who move less than 2000 steps per day were more likely to be re-admitted to the hospital following injury or illness.

Most of us have smart phones these days and can track our daily activity levels and total steps.  The Health app built into the iPhone will count your steps each day provided you carry it around with you every where you go.  Some of us also have Fit Bits or smart watches that will also track our daily steps.  Do you know how many steps you took today?  This is a great way to start to log your daily activity so that you can follow “Harry’s #1 Rule”  and mine!  Exercise 6 days a week like it is your job!
