Walking for regular activity can help reduce many common health concerns, such as heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, and more! But, can you really walk your way to better health? It’s a start! The Centers for Disease Control recommends 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity exercise, such as brisk walking, swimming, and/or running. Whether your walking pace is considered moderate-intensity exercise or not, those extra steps still help prevent many problems that are associated with sitting too much throughout the day. Your walking pace isn’t speedy enough to qualify as moderate-intensity exercise, but those steps still help prevent problems that can occur from sitting too much during the day. Try these activities to get you on your way to better health.

  • Take the dog for a walk If you don’t have a dog, volunteer to walk dogs at an animal shelter. Or combine your activity with social time by joining a friend to walk his or her dog.
  • Schedule workday walk Put daily reminders on your work calendar to take a break for a short 10-minute walk. Or, if you have a one-on-one working meeting, suggest walking instead of sitting.
  • Involve your family Instead of watching another Netflix episode, suggest that the whole family goes out for mid-day or sunset walk together.
  • Make a fun playlist or listen to a podcast Turn on something that is upbeat that will help motivate you to walk faster. This is a great way to make something that may not be enjoyable for you, enjoyable! Or, if you are into a podcast series, listen to this and walk for the full length of the podcast.
