Counteract effects of sedentary lifestyle: Walking can be a refreshing and healthy addition to our daily routine. Here’s how to get started.
1. Get appropriate shoes and attire. No need to go overboard and buy expensive gears. Just get shoes that fit well and can support you. Regular t-shirts and trackpants will work fine.
2. Find a suitable walking
location. Parks are the best but any open area can be used for walking.
3. Don’t push yourself too hard. Walking for a long time right from the get-go will probably lead to sprains. Start small and gradually increase the time and distance.
4. Maintain proper posture. You should stand tall, look straight ahead and lift your chest a bit. The arms should move freely with your body.
