To walk 7000 steps a day is my intent,
Cuts my risk of dying by 70 percent.
Plans for walking the equivalent of 3 miles a day I have made.
Making it much less likely to die in the next decade.
Taking more than 10000 steps a day did not result in a further risk of dying.
So keeping to a sensible step rate I am constantly trying.
I sometimes think about my sedentary peers,

Are being stretched beyond endurance I fear.

A 50% face to face consultation to many is appalling...

But fighting the pain and surviving seems okay to me.
14 percent of suicid...
