Health Tip: Fit Walking into Your Schedule

5 August 2019
(HealthDay News) -- Walking is a versatile form of exercise that can be done most anywhere. The American Heart Association suggests that adults spend at least 30 minutes each day doing a moderate intensity activity. Fitting brisk walking into your daily schedule is one way to meet that goal. To fit walking into your schedule, the AHA suggests: Park or get off at the bus/train station 10 minutes away from your job. Schedule a lunchtime walk in your work calendar. Keep everything at work that you'll need for walking. Listen to music while walking, or recruit friends to walk with you. Before going to bed, lay out your walking clothes and shoes. If you decide to walk at night, the AHA reminds you to wear reflective clothing or carry a light.
