Going For a Walk
Walking is one of the best and most realistic activities to do that will help you to stay fit and healthy.
Best of all, walking only requires a good pair of shoes and absolutely no equipment. If you’re typically
a very inactive person, start off by going for a short, brisk walk around your neighborhood. While you
don’t need to be running, your walk should put you slightly out of breath, but not too much so that
you can’t carry on a conversation with your walking partner. After you become more used to walking
regularly, walk in areas where there are slight inclines and at a faster pace.
Like walking, hiking it a great way to stay fit while enjoying the great outdoors. A hike will get your
blood pumping while you take in the amazing views that surround you. Hit up a local hiking trail in
your area and rest at scenic spots along the way. Beginners will want to start with shorter, easier
hiking trails, while those who are more advanced may opt to enjoy longer trails with harder obstacles.
A day spent hiking is sure to feel much more rewarding than a few hours at the gym.
