3 Times to Fit Walking In

3 Times to Fit Walking In

Are you making time to fit walking into your day? Most adults should try for 150 minutes of moderate intensity activity per week. 30 minutes of brisk walking at least five days a week fits this goal. Walking is a great activity because you do not need much equipment or special knowledge. Today we will discuss 3 times of day to consider taking a walk.

3 Times to Fit Walking In

  1. Morning. If you like to exercise in the morning, put workout clothes out and shoes by the door to make your mornings easier. Eat a light breakfast, such as fruit or yogurt, and wear reflective clothing if it is still dark outside. If you listen to music, make sure you can still hear traffic over your music.
  2. Lunchtime. Walking at lunch is a great way to fit movement into your day. Keep everything you need at work. You might only need to change shoes. You can also keep a change of clothing on hand if you sweat a lot. Recruit coworkers to join you and hold each other accountable. Eat a light lunch after.
  3. Evening. If evening is your prime exercise time, have a light snack an hour or two before heading out so that you experience energy during your walk. Again, wear reflective clothing or carry a light if its dark out. Night may be a great time to get your family to join you. Consider establishing a post-dinner walk as a family tradition.

Remember, you might switch your walking time as your schedule changes. You can also take shorter 10 -minute walks throughout the day. All activity matters, and anything you can fit in is better than not moving. At KareBoost Health, we encourage everyone to find the healthy lifestyle that works for them and to fit walking in wherever they can.
