Health Day News reports pedometers may be a low-cost motivator to get you moving more. "Wearing a pedometer that tracks daily physical activity can motivate you to sit less, move more and perhaps shed unwanted pounds, a new study suggests.

Researchers from Indiana University found this type of intervention was particularly helpful for workers who had desk jobs. And, they noted, pedometers are also an inexpensive way to target a large number of people." read more of this article

Have you ever worn one? Did it motivate you to move more than you normally would?
