Walk: you’re designed to
Why? First, because the human animal is made for walking. Second, your heart needs it. In fact, it is begging for it.
How to fit it in? If you live within a mile of work, take a walk commute. If you have extra time and live a little further from work, still walk. Or, park a half-mile from work. Chances are you not only will get 20-minutes of walking in, but you could also save money on parking; you can run errands while walking back to the car. Or, the walk may turn into a happy adventure.
Not possible to commute by your feet? Take your walking shoes to work and take a strolling lunch or afternoon coffee break. Have a meeting with your boss that doesn’t involve Powerpoint? Suggest a walking meeting around the block or through a park. If you get home and still haven’t walked…reward yourself with a walk to dinner and a movie.
Ask yourself, can I walk there?
And, a reminder that as we walk less and less, it is showing in our girth.
