Here are the council's recommendations:
- Start out with a short walk of about five minutes. Then gradually increase your time and distance.
- Don't walk too quickly; stick to a comfortable pace.
- Practice proper posture, with your head up and shoulders relaxed.
- Allow your arms to swing naturally.
- Breathe deeply, and slow down if you can't catch your breath.
- Don't move so vigorously that you can't talk while you're walking.
