Thinking about starting a new workout routine? You don’t have to sign up and pay money at a gym, nor do you need to log into yet another Zoom to practice group yoga.
I’m sure you’ve heard this before but all you need are your two feet (and maybe a coat and hat, at the moment) to kick off a healthy walking routine. Not only is walking a very easy way to ease into getting healthier and more fit, there are many other benefits that you may not be considering.
Scheduling a 30 minute walk on your calendar every day or at least a couple-few times a week ensures that you have a half hour away from meetings, phone calls and people asking you questions. You can bundle up (or not, depending on the weather) and do something you already know how to do: walk. No training necessary.
Don’t forget to pay attention to what you see, hear and smell. You’ll be very surprised about how fast the 30 minutes passes by and how much calmer you feel in one short half hour!
Of course, in addition to the mental health benefits of walking, this exercise helps you to:
- Maintain a healthy weight and lose body fat
Prevent or manage various conditions, including heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, cancer and type 2 diabetes
Improve cardiovascular fitness
Strengthen your bones and muscles
Improve muscle endurance
Make time for you! Tie up those laces and put one foot in front of another. Before you know it, you’ll be able to tell people you have an exercise routine that’s working for you!
