Walking does help to keep you fit and you may also lose weight in the progress. Walking doesn’t cost anything you have no costly machines to buy; you have the tool so use them it’s the healthy way to do it.
If you can walk to work not always possible but if you can then go to it. Start out trying it for a couple of days first to see how your body handles the change in your lifestyle. Add a day say every two weeks as this will allow your body to adjust to the changes then build it up until you’re walking every day. If you can’t walk to work then try walking in the evening. Start yourself with a reasonable distance and follow the same steps “pardon the pun” as above.
What about also trying instead of taking the lift at work use the stairs try a flight at first to see how comfortable you are and then use the lift for the rest of the journey. Add a flight say every two weeks or see how your body reacts; only you can be the judge of that. You will be amazed at the difference it will make to your lifestyle. It will get your blood pumping around the body and the oxygen flowing that will help joint and muscle stiffening from your previous lifestyle of no exercise.
Wear comfortable shoes / trainers, drink plenty of water I am sure you will feel the benefits of walking exercise working for you in a short space of time.
Once you feel good about walking why not try to organise a group walk and make it fun. Find out if your colleges at work could maybe use half of their lunch time to try it. What about a family walking exercise for an hour or two and get the neighbors involved. Walking exercise doesn’t have to be a chore. Take walks in the country side and see nature as it should be; go for walks in the park enjoy these tools you were born with.
Determination and will power are the key words to fulfilling any type of exercise whether it is following walking exercise, weight loss program etc. The quality i.e. calorie counting and quantity of the food also go towards a healthy life style, but that is for another article.
So best foot forward and get going. Happy walking exercise to help aid your health.
