For the last few years, we at EOM have been actively involved with our FitBit and monitoring our daily activities. How are we doing. So-so. 🙁  In comparison, we know that others — in the United States and around the globe — are doing much worse. 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁   Where do YOU stand? 🙂

As Niall McCarthy writes for Statista:

“Have you ever wondered where people tend to walk the most daily on average? Scientists at Stanford University have answered this question by collecting data on a ‘planetary-scale’ to learn how active people are in different countries. While Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare recommends a person walk 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day, the UK’s National Obesity Forum says somebody walking 7,000 to 10,000 would be moderately active.”

“The research found that on average, people walk 4,961 steps a day, far less than the recommended amount above. People in Hong Kong are the most active with 6,880 steps a day, while they are least active in Indonesia, averaging a mere 3,513. The Statista infographic below shows the average steps taken in a selection of larger countries included in the research. In China, people average 6,189 steps a day, while in Japan that number is 6,019. Americans are less active and can be found in the middle of the pack, averaging 4,774 daily steps.
