It’s safe to say we’ve all been walking a lot more in the past year and a half, whether we wanted to or not!
During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, a daily walk was the only way we could get outdoors, away from our home offices and catch up with friends and family. The benefits of getting out in the fresh air are multiple.Walking can help you get your daily dose of Vitamin D from the sun’s rays. It can help you stretch your legs, get your circulation working properly, give your immune system a boost and stop your muscles from feeling tired and achy.
It can also help improve your mood and boost your mental health and emotional wellbeing.
With COVID regulations starting to wind down, many of us have been keeping up with our daily walks during lunch breaks and to maintain our healthy lifestyle.
Here are our top tips for making your daily stroll more enjoyable.
SEVEN WAYS TO MAKE YOUR WALKS MORE FUN
HOW A DAILY WALK IMPROVES YOUR HEALTHWalking is a free, low maintenance, low impact form of exercise with a multitude of health benefits. Walking at a decent pace will not only raise your heart rate but also give you the opportunity to increase your walking distance over time and hit new goals week on week.
A 30-minute walk each day is a great way to improve your cardiovascular and lung health which keeps your blood pressure in check and reduces your risk of heart disease and stroke.
If you find you don’t have time for long walks or find staying motivated a difficult task, there’s no harm in starting smaller. Talking the stairs instead of the lift, getting off the bus a stop earlier to walk or offering to walk the neighbour’s dog are all great ways to get active.
To recoin the well-known saying, a walk a day really does keep the doctor away. There are several ways to keep your daily walk exciting and refreshing with a few simple tweaks that will not only keep your fitness levels topped up but boost your mental health too.
