Walking is Best for Health

ID-10033908Let’s discuss about some of the unconventional and conventional but not commonly practiced health tips are dealt to remain fit and healthy and enjoy the fruits of good life. Many people are aware of many of the tips here, but if you are reading this article you should give a thought and ponder about the applicability of the health tips discussed here and I assure you that there will be dramatic change in your health as well as the way you look into life as a whole.

Brisk walking is the best exercise to remain fit. You may think running is better, but my opinion is walking as you can continue it lifelong (running you can not continue when you grow old). It can be easily said that running can keep you fit but so can walking of about 30 minutes to one hour a day. Moreover you can keep walking for longer duration. For example drug “A” is better than drub “B” for treatment of a particular disease, but with drug “A”, compliance is not good and with drug “B”, compliance is good. So here drug “B” should be prescribed by the doctor in general (drug “A” can be prescribed to a patient who is highly motivated and will take it despite difficulties). In this case also if a person is highly motivated for regular exercise than he/she should choose running instead of walking to remain fit.

Some tips about how you can walk regularly:

It is recommended to walk at least 6 days a week and at least 30 minutes a day. Make it a habit of walking for at least 30 minutes a day. If your office (place of work) is 1-5 kilometers from your home, you should make it a habit of walking back from office. You should not walk to your office in the morning, instead you should walk back (use Bus No. 11 for coming back). Going to office by foot is not recommended. If your office is very near to your home or more than 5 kilometer away you can make habit of going to shop foods and vegetables, preferably daily or at least 5 times a week. You should not walk back from office if it is more than 5 km. This is to maintain compliance, as in any long term plan (including long term treatment of a chronic disease) most important is compliance and it has to be thought of beforehand. If any of the above suggestions do not fit your case you should try to find out a strategy which will suit you, long term.

So, keep walking and remain healthy and fit and enjoy life to the fullest. Most important is to prioritize walking and remain motivated.


NB: Bus no. 11 means your 2 legs. We call 2 legs bus no. 11 (route no.) hilariously 🙂
