It's easy to reach 10,000 steps at work when you go to the next furthest water cooler for refills, go to the far restroom. Try walking to your co-workers instead of e-mailing. I work in an auto plant and found that I can reach 1/3 of my goal in the first two hours of the day just by "going long".
Get a pedometer for starters. If you're just starting out get a simple one.
Don't get discouraged by just the thought of working out or exercising. Start easy, short, and simple first. From there work up it. Example 3 push ups, 10 crunches, half a mile walk. Start short and simple then on a daily or weekly basis add more to your routine.41
Also never compare your daily routine with anyone else's. Everyone is different. You make your own goals.
So, I have headsets, charges, earbuds, etc. all over the place. I sat down...well, i tried to sit down, and took the pile that sits on the counter and decided to organize with snack sized ziplock bags and post-it notes in each bag so I know what is what. It is such a smarter, cleaner system. Now, all the bags are in one catch-all box, with labels.
Simple organization for small items
