WALKING FOR HEALTH

Walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier.

It is underrated as a form of exercise but walking is ideal for people of all ages and fitness levels who want to be more active. Regular walking has been shown to reduce the risk of chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, stroke and some cancers. Use this guide to increase the amount of walking you do every day and maximize the health benefits.

Before you start

A pair of shoes is all the equipment you really need. Any shoes or trainers that are comfortable provide adequate support and don’t cause blisters will do.

Wear loose-fitting clothing that allows you to move freely. Choose thin layers rather than heavy, chunky clothing.

If you’re walking to work, you can just wear your usual work clothes with a comfy pair of shoes.

For long walks, you may want to take some water, healthy snacks, a spare top, sunscreen and a sunhat in a small backpack.

If you start taking regular, longer walks, you may want to invest in a waterproof jacket and some walking boots for more challenging routes.

Starting out

Start slowly and try to build your walking regime gradually. To get the health benefits from walking, it needs to be of moderate-intensity aerobic activity. In other words, it needs to be faster than a stroll.

Try to walk 10,000 steps a day; most of us walk between 3,000 and 4,000 steps a day anyway, so reaching 10,000 isn’t as daunting as it might sound.

To begin with, you can only walk fast for a couple of minutes, that’s fine. Don’t overdo it on your first day. You can break up your activity into 10-minute chunks, as long as you’re doing your activity at a moderate intensity.

Begin every walk slowly and gradually increase your pace. After a few minutes, if you’re ready, try walking a little faster.

Towards the end of your walk, gradually slow down your pace to cool down. Finish off with a few gentle stretches, which will help improve your flexibility.

From walking to the shops or part of your journey to work, to walking the dog and organized group walks, try to make every step count.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and let me tell
    you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about.

    Now i’m very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something concerning this.

  22. iQuickLoanz says:

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your
    site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  23. I visited multiple sites but the audio quality for audio songs existing at this web site
    is actually marvelous.

  24. For hottest news you have to visit web and on internet I
    found this website as a most excellent website for most recent updates.

  25. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?

    My site goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from
    each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!

  26. Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from
    someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  27. Saved as a favorite, I like your web site!

  29. Stunning story there. What occurred after? Take care!

  30. I do consider all the ideas you have offered in your
    post. They’re really convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are too short for novices.

    May you please prolong them a bit from subsequent
    time? Thanks for the post.

  31. I’m extremely impressed together with your writing abilities as neatly as with the structure
    on your weblog. Is this a paid topic or did you modify it yourself?

    Either way keep up the excellent high quality writing,
    it is uncommon to see a great weblog like this one these days..

  32. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it
    was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the
    whole thing. Do you have any points for novice blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.

  33. Please let me know if you’re looking for a author for your weblog.
    You have some really great posts and I think I would be a good asset.
    If you ever want to take some of the load off,
    I’d really like to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please shoot me an email if interested. Thank you!

  34. I think everything said was very reasonable. However, what about this?
    suppose you were to create a killer title? I am not saying your content isn’t solid.,
    but suppose you added a title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean WALKING FOR
    HEALTH – GET FIT STAY FIT is a little vanilla.
    You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they write post headlines
    to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a picture or two to grab
    readers interested about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a
    little livelier.

  35. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d without a doubt donate
    to this outstanding blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for bookmarking and adding your RSS feed to my Google
    account. I look forward to new updates and will share this blog with my Facebook group.
