Walking is the perfect beginner’s exercise because it works the whole body. And it has tremendous benefits for our precious brains, which are always under constant stress. Walking as an exercise is easy to do and perfect for all fitness levels. In addition, we don’t need anything fancy. Except in my case, I use any Fitbit watch to track and motivate my steps and improve distance, speed, and inclination each week. 

Benefits of Walking

According to this research, among the many benefits of walking are improving life expectancy and decreasing the risk of diseases. So do you mean that I could live until my 120th birthday? Let’s try it because I’m sure sitting on a couch or chair all day won’t give me longevity. I love walking because I can modify my daily walk according to the energy and mood of the day. For example, to burn fat and tone muscle, I take the routes with more stairs and hills and increase my speed with jogging. In addition, I’m lucky to live in a neighborhood with long walking trails and stunning waterfront views of the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline. 

I started walking seriously during March when I noticed the first glimpse of Spring and longer daylight hours. Two months have passed, and I’m happy to report positive results in how I feel and look. I walk for a minimum of one hour. Jogging has also become the best therapy. I clear my thoughts, and sometimes when I’m listening to the right playlists, I forget all troubles of the day and the World. Plus, jogging is the best solo exercise; I love it because I’m one of those who hate talking while I’m sweating. Also, walking makes me fall asleep for longer hours, wake up early, be more refreshed, and ultimately change my sleeping cycle, which was a disaster during the dark and long winter months.

Take Your Walking Workout To The Next Level 

Initially, I began with easy long walks. However, I started taking stairs, hills, and jogging once I got the daily walking habit. Also, I joined a friendly competitive group among friends using the Fitbit app, the person with the most steps wins the week, and Fitbit rewards the efforts with awards. This friendly competition is highly motivational, and I recommend it for those starting to walk and feel bored or alone. I never feel alone and take great pleasure on my solo walks. I call them my meditation walk; I take my headphones and favorite playlist, and I’m in my happy zone for miles.

Give it a try. Just remember to start drinking plenty of water from the moment you wake up, bring an extra bottle of water, stretch your legs before leaving home, and try adding a protein shake after the walk. Enjoy jogging!
