What if we told you that there was a beneficial exercise that you could do anywhere, and you don't need anything more expensive than a comfy pair of shoes?
There is! Take a walk!
Walking is often overlooked or downplayed because it is something we do every day, but it offers many physical and digestive benefits.
Support cardiovascular health
Stimulates your digestive track
Improves your mood
Easy on joints
Can be done anytime and anywhere
Weave walking into your day!
Have a walking meeting! If you have a remote meeting that is mostly listening, grab some headphones and your sneakers.
Walk the second half of lunch! Even if you can only fit in 10 minutes that is still awesome.
Set an alarm! If you have a desk job set a reminder to walk for 5 minutes every hour. By the end of the workday, you would have walked for over half an hour.
If your goal is to train your body for long, stable workouts, try going on a long walk at a medium pace.
Start with 20 minutes and lengthen your walk by 5 minutes each workout.
If your goal is to improve how fast you can walk and how quickly you can recover, try interval training.
Alternate between 1 minute of speed walk and 1 minute of moderate walking for 20 minutes. As you feel more comfortable, start to lengthen your speed walk interval by 30 seconds.
