Brisk walking is an easy way to incorporate exercise into your every day routine
Brisk walking is an easy way to incorporate exercise into your every day routine. It is an ideal way to get fit especially if you have been prone to lying on the sofa or have been stuck behind a desk.
As simple as it may seem, walking brings fresh air into your body, clears your mind and creates time for yourself. Walking with friends or with your newborn can be a refreshing use of time and a welcome change of environment.
As little as 20 minutes of walking three times a week is adequate to increase your fitness levels. Aim to walk reasonably fast, varying your pace to increase stamina and circulation.
If you are already reasonably fit you may like to try power walking as an alternative to high-impact jogging.
Don’t forget to wear supportive shoes and drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration.
