Walking 10,000 steps a day is recommended for adults to engage in 150 minutes of moderate activity a week, such as brisk walking. The average adult walks around 6K steps a day.

Some scientists have found the relationship between metabolic risk in adults and the time spent sitting, standing and stepping have not been well established.

Studies continue aimed to determine associations of objectively measured time spent sitting, standing, and stepping, with coronary heart disease.

However, there have been plenty of articles stating that regular exercise significantly improves our health.
