How to Get the Most From Walking

Walking is the simplest and one of the most common types of exercise. The great thing about it is that you don’t need any special equipment besides a pair of comfy shoes. You can do it everywhere, alone or with someone, and it’s generally easy to implement it in your daily life. How do you get the most out of walking?

Walk Every Day

Everyday walks can help you stay in shape and burn calories. It’s best to walk for at least 30 minutes every day if you can or aim for four one-hour long walks per week.

Everything Counts

It’s not necessary to schedule long walks if you want to benefit from walking. Every little thing during the day counts, so start taking the stairs instead of elevators and figure out how to squeeze in more walking in your commute. It could be getting off one stop earlier if you’re using public transport or parking further away if you’re driving.

Get Comfy Shoes

Nothing can be as motivating for walking as a pair of comfortable shoes. Now that sneakers are so trendy, you can even walk to work in them and change into something more appropriate once you get there.
