Walking Tips

It’s a fact of life that people in the city don’t get much exercise, unless you live in a city where you walk everywhere you go. This means you have to put your mind to it and work at it.

 

You have to fit fitness into your daily schedule or you’re going to be overweight and sick. That’s just the way it is.

 

Exercise is the best way to control obesity, it is the best way to control stress, hypertension, cardio vascular disease, and other lifestyle related illnesses.

 

If you can workout outside, even better. Your body needs as much fresh air as it can get.

Don’t carry your wireless phone or cell phone with you. If it rings, go walk for it. There are so many conveniences in life and we always have everything we need at our fingertips, but this is obviously bad for the waistline.
Take your dog on a walk. Chances are that if you’re not getting enough exercise, neither is your pet. Or, let your dog take you on a walk. For once in his life, let him lead you where he wants to go and as fast as he wants to get there. It could be a good workout for the both of you.
Suck in your stomach when you walk. Walk properly, but do your best to keep that stomach tucked in. You will soon begin to feel those muscles tightening.
Even if you don’t have a gym membership, chances are that there is a sidewalk outside your house and some people may even have access to a pool. Get up a half hour earlier, throw on the sneakers and get to walking, running, jogging or whatever your exercise of choice is. If you have a four legged friend, they’ll surely enjoy this time with you as well.
Work off the extra calories by the end of the week. If you feel you have splurged too much this week, be sure to get to the gym or go walking a little longer to work off those extra calories you have consumed.
Don’t stand around, walk around. If you can walk around then do it. People who are pacers are actually doing themselves a lot of good because they are constantly moving. Pacing also helps you think.
Walk around while you’re on the telephone. You’ll get a good workout if it is a long conversation.
If you can’t run for a physical reason, then try 15 minutes of brisk walking to keep fit.
You can walk anywhere if you have time. If work or the grocery store is not far away, consider walking there or riding a bike. It may take you longer, but you’re getting your workout in at the same time.
Hide the remote control from yourself. Remote controls are also evil when it comes to losing weight. If you didn’t have a remote, you may not even turn on the television, which means you might find more active things to do. Get up and change the channel if you don’t have a remote or go for a walk instead of watching TV.
Do your own fetching. If you need something from the kitchen, the TV channel changed, the mail or newspaper from the driveway, walk and get it yourself. Adding a little walking to your day will do wonders for you.
Walk around during commercial breaks or do simple exercises like crunches or bending over and touching your toes. Do anything to get your body moving more and to keep your blood pumping.
If you take public transportation, get off a block before your stop and walk the remainder of the way. This is a good way to squeeze in a walk before and after work or on the way to another destination.
