Whether you’re looking to embark on walking adventures , or simply wanting to increase your daily step count, here are just a few ways that you can add more walking into your day:
Try incorporating a walk when meeting up with friends and family or take a stroll and phone a friend to catch up.
Make it part of your routine – try setting aside a time that works for you, such as taking a walk during your lunch break, or a stroll around the block before dinner time.
If possible, try leaving the car at home for shorter journeys such as running errands or doing the school run.
When choosing a parking space, such as at the supermarket, park in a space further away from the building.
If using public transport, get off a few stops early and walk the rest of the way.
Purchase a wearable device or download a fitness app to monitor your steps and activity levels. A daily step goal can help to keep you motivated and stay on track.
Note: It’s advisable to consult your GP before commencing any new or more strenuous exercise.
