Setting realistic goals at the start of the year is a great way to ensure that you will keep your resolutions throughout the year. Did you Know that Walking is considered the best exercise? and can be done almost anywhere without special equipment!
Big-Win series offers you a new tip every month to support you to incorporate healthy behavior into your everyday life.
Walking is free,
Walking can be done anywhere and is suitable for all fitness levels, yet it’s something so many of us overlook as a great form of exercise. By walking just 1.5 km or about 30 minutes a day you can promote weight loss, boost your mood and lower your risk of cardiovascular disease.
Getting Started is the hardest part
30 minutes of walking 5 days a week is all that is needed to achieve great health benefits. If 30 minutes sounds daunting – Do not worry! You can break it down to 10 minutes of three short walks a day and get the same results.
What is holding you back? The sooner you get started the sooner you will notice the difference in your mind and body.
If you live in a built up city it can be hard to find fresh air and open spaces to walk in.
Green spaces and parks are more common than you think.
Use mobile apps to help you to locate the most accessible parks . Take Gurugram for instance, a city not particularly famous for its parks but even here there are 3 pieces of paradise you can go to for your recommended daily walk . Aravali Bio Diversity Park; Leisure Valley Park and Tau Devi Lal Bio Diversity Park
The Best thing about walking is you can do it with friends and catch up on all the news and gossip. It does not cost a thing, you already know how to do it and it can also be an excellent way of meeting new people. There are many dedicated walking groups that you can find on the web that will match you up with your desired social group.
Do not wait any longer. Get your trainers on and go for a walk. This will help reduce pollution and your health. If you don’t believe me just ask Science.
Your walking clothes should be a comfortable fit and of course, allow you to move freely. Do remember to get yourself a good pair of shoes with arch support.
