In the past people used to walk everywhere. They didn’t have much choice because there was no other way of going from point A to point B. Households didn’t have cars and not everybody lived on a bus route. Even if you could use public transport you might have to walk to the nearest place to get onto it. Nowadays people get into their cars and drive everywhere. They don’t consider walking a mile to post a letter, even on a beautiful day. They would rather drive, and then wonder why they have health problems. If you are someone who never walks then it is time to start and to walk your way to health.
If you drive to the stores park the car a little further away forcing you to walk to the store and back again. Spend longer walking around the store or malls, making sure you at least start to get some exercise.
A walk in the country is always a wonderful way to get exercise. You can go as a family and use it as a way of educating your children, pointing out the flowers and wild life you pass as you walk.
If you want to start to walk around your neighborhood, and are not sure how people will react, put on your headphone, play music, and wear a pair of shades. Then go without a care in the world knowing you are getting fit and it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. Your health is far more important than people talking about you. They will soon become jealous as you take your daily exercise. If you have a dog, take them with you for their exercise as well.
Walking is an easy exercise to start with. Warm up first making sure you stretch those muscles. Walk fast enough to feel your heart working but not so fast that you can’t talk. Make the decision today to walk your way to health.
