Make walking a daily habit – especially if you have a dog.
Walking, exercise – anything but sitting on the couch for hours watching Netflix, AmazonPrime, HBO, HULU, Video Games – ( then picking on unhealthy foods).
Besides not having to hunt and gather food – just ordering it online or walking around the grocery store – we usually sit — a lot. This is not good and will cause health problems if done daily. Make a goal to walk daily – starting with 10 minutes at a time – or around the block (or dining table).
We need to get in the habit of walking daily. Just as you brush your teeth religiously – walk daily. Once you get started you will be sad on the days you miss.
Figure out a nice route before you start. Maybe some place with a beautiful vista or ocean view. By my house we have several trails to choose from long and short with very beautiful views.
Try to find a place to walk that is convenient – so you don’t have to drive there and/or make excuses. Leave from your door, lace up you shoes and go from there.
The more you walk the stronger you will become. Get some 1 pound hand weights https://amzn.to/35VrT2s – I use these everyday. You can swing arm circles while walking to really increase your heart rate.
Listen to podcasts, learn a new language, get caught up on a book or news. If you use your favorite listening device maybe this will motivate you to walking and exercise. Even days when you are not feeling it – maybe a great item to listen to will be an idea.
Buy a new pair of walking shoes, a new walking or exercise outfit, a drinking bottle.
Find a walking group with others. When you have someone to account to – maybe you will not miss those days.
Do you have any tips you would like to include?
Disclosure – we make some pennies on items we recommend and they are still the same price if you buy them on your own.
