Do you live locally? Walking to work could be the healthiest option! Most people can walk two miles in around thirty minutes so if you live closer than that why not save cash, reduce your carbon footprint, ensure you don’t get stuck in the traffic and get fit too!
Walking is a fantastic way to get – and stay – healthy.
One of the reasons health experts give walking such rave reviews is because it’s a ‘lifestyle exercise’. That means you can usually make time for it without too much of a change to your daily routine. Walking to work, to the shops, or the final mile from the bus stop to your friend’s house may take a little more time, but it’s certainly not the big project that signing up for a gym (and making the time to get there) can be.
Because it’s easy to fit into everyday life, people who walk tend to keep it up. And as you’ll see below, regular exercise is exactly what you need to improve your health.
