Tips For Walking
Use a pedometer. Measure how many steps you take. Try adding a few more steps each day.
Walk regulary. Try to walk on most days for the week. If you can only walk a couple of minutes to start with then that's okay - aim to build up gradually.
Wear suitable footwear. Wear shoes that are comfortable, that provide good support and don't give you blisters.
Wear Suitable Clothing. You will feel warmer when you're walking briskly so wear loose fitting and light clothing that allows you to move freely.
Burn off calories. The longer you walk, the more calories you burn - pushing a pram when you walk uses even more.
Walk with a buddy. Walk with someone and have a good chat along the way - or have a family walk after dinner.
Walk and discover local parks, paths and open spaces and places of interest such as the Museum of Harlow and the town's various sculptures.
Enjoy a lunchtime walk. You could walk with colleagues and unwind from work.
Get a dog or offer to take a friend's or neighbour's dog for a walk.
Get the kids walking. Walk the children to school when you can.Previous Page: A-Z Sports Clubs (1)
