Having a step target
Being in isolation may have quite a significant impact on your blood sugar levels, especially if you are normally an active person.
One thing you can do to encourage yourself to stay active is to set yourself a step target / step goal each day.
- Using a fitness tracker, pedometer or step tracking app on your phone, see how many steps your are currently taking
- Based on how many steps you are already taking, set yourself a target
- Make your step target achievable. For example if you are taking 2000 steps at the moment don’t go setting yourself a 10,000 step target for the next day.
- Increase your target gradually. When you are consistently hitting your target then increase it a bit more.
