We should all be exercising for at least 30 minutes most days of the week. The good news about increasing activity levels is that any activity you perform counts and may be added up (for example, three 10-minute walks spaced throughout the day) to have a significant positive impact on your health and fitness. You may achieve your health and fitness goals by walking, which is a fantastic low-impact activity.
Try to complete a full 30 to 60 minutes of daily activity by combining the following activities:
- 1-2 times a week, use the public transportation part of the way and then walk the remaining distance to work.
- During your breaks, go for a 10- to 15-minute brisk walk.
- Walk quickly for 10 to 15 minutes before or after meals.
- Avoid using the escalators and elevators; instead, take the stairs.
- Take a stroll to meetings across campus.
- Keep moving even when at home.
- Work in the yard or the garden.
- Jog the dog. S
- Hop for groceries on foot.
- Enrol in a class or take lessons to learn a new sport, or
- Sign up for an evening dancing session (i.e. soccer, tennis, water aerobics).
- After supper, go for a stroll on a reputable street with a companion.
Prepare for the following workday by packing your gym bag with your walking shoes, a change of clothes, and toiletries. It will ensure that you are ready to exercise during the workday or on your way home.
