Walking Your Way to a Healthier You

What is your advise?

Starting an exercise routine can be overwhelming for many people, leaving them unsure of where to begin. This can lead to overthinking about finding time to go to the gym or buying expensive equipment and workout videos for home use. However, there is a simple yet often overlooked exercise that can easily fit into your daily routine – walking! Incorporating walking into your daily life is as easy as making a few changes to your regular routine. For instance, if you live near your workplace, consider waking up a bit earlier and walking there. Alternatively, during your lunch break, you can plug in your earphones and take a stroll while enjoying your favourite tunes.

As we get older, walking long distances or at a fast pace may become more challenging. However, this does not mean that you should give up on staying active. There are many new technologies available that can help you maintain an active lifestyle. Consider investing in a walking frame, which can provide support as you walk. Some walking frames even include a seat, allowing you to take a break whenever necessary. Additionally, there are models that come equipped with a hidden compartment for storing your shopping. With these helpful tools, staying active and mobile is easier than ever.

Walking is a great way to stay active, and it’s no surprise that the average adult walks such a significant distance over their lifetime. In fact a average adult will walk nearly 75,000 miles over their lifespan this is the equivalent of travelling around the world THREE times!

Here are some interesting facts and considerations about walking:

Walking can have numerous health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease, improved mood, and better bone health. Breathlessness can improve with time and repetition.

To get the most health benefits from walking, it’s recommended to aim for at least 30 minutes of brisk walking per day. Investing in a good pair of walking shoes and insoles can help make your walks more comfortable and reduce the risk of injury. If you’re looking for ways to increase your daily step count, consider taking the stairs instead of the elevator, parking farther away from your destination. If you are looking to walk to work wear a pair of comfortable shoes to walk in and take your work shoes in a bag to change into when you get to work. If you have kids you could all go on a walk and bring a picnic with you to stop and have during your walk. Take a look at some walking aids to help you maintain that active lifestyle.
