If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

How Many Steps Should You Take in a Day? A New Study Says Less Than You Think

Is 10,000 steps a day still the golden standard?



Taking extra steps can lengthen your life!

A new study says elderly women who rack up 4400 to 7500 steps per day can live longer.

To understand how many steps per day are associated with decreased mortality, researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital completed the study.

From 2011 to 2015, 16 741 women (with an average age of 72) from the Women’s Health study were required to wear fitness trackers on their hip for seven straight days.

The average follow up was 4.3 years, and 504 women had died.

Most women who died had steps per day that were less than 2700 per day.

But women who had 4400 steps per day had a 41 per cent reduction in mortality.

Decline in mortality levelled off at 7500 steps per day.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE: The above study points out that a goal of 10,000 steps/day is commonly believed by the public to be necessary for health, but this number has limited scientific basis. Additionally, it is unknown whether greater stepping intensity is associated with health benefits, independent of steps taken per day. I make mention of this because many people are unable to reach the 10,000 step goal and this study is very encouraging in that 4400 to 7500 is very effective!
