Get Start with Walking

The secret behind getting ahead is getting started. The first few days of a new walking activity can be challenging. Most of us may find it difficult to wake up early and go for a walk. Don’t give up on it! You will start loving the benefits of walking.

“Walking is an excellent form of exercise for people of all ages and abilities.”

Tips to make your walk easy and comfortable
  • Find a partner or group of people to walk
  • Select a good location for walking, let it be a flat terrain, an open garden, a park, area which is with minimal traffic and peaceful.
  • Ensure that you are wearing appropriate footwear to avoid pressure and pain in your foot while you walk. Wear shoes with thick flexible sole, which cushions your feet and absorbs shock.
  • Take your vehicle if the walking area is far away from your place.
  • Wear clothes that will keep you dry and comfortable

Points to know-

Find a safe place to walk
  • Check whether the place you opted for walk is with enough lightening and side walks
  • Do not work out too hard, start with minimal distances for few minutes if you are a beginner
Split your walk into three parts
  • Initially walk slowly for 3-5 minutes.
  • Increase your speed for the next 5 minutes for a fast walk.
  • Finally, cool down: walk slowly again for 3-5 minutes.
Schedule to walk at least thrice per a week to start
  • Slowly add on 2 to 3 minutes per week to get habituated with fast walk
  • If you feel that, you are able to walk fewer than thrice per week. Do not rush! Brisken the walk more slowly.
  • If you are habituated with the slow walking, plan to begin walking faster, going farther, and walking for longer span of time
