We perform the same tasks day in day out, No problems! this is known as “life” just as we need to work to earn money, and we need to move around to do the same chores that are necessary and need doing every day.
We move around the house performing tasks that we repeat every day without thinking, it’s natural and it’s normal. Walking for weight-loss is not just for people who want to lose weight from walking.
