Health Tip: Fit Walking into Your Schedule

(HealthDay News) -- Walking is a versatile form of exercise that can be done most anywhere. The American Heart Association suggests that adults spend at least 30 minutes each day doing a moderate intensity activity. Fitting brisk walking into your daily schedule is one way to meet that goal.

To fit walking into your schedule, the AHA suggests:

  • Park or get off at the bus/train station 10 minutes away from your job.
  • Schedule a lunchtime walk in your work calendar.
  • Keep everything at work that you'll need for walking.
  • Listen to music while walking, or recruit friends to walk with you.
  • Before going to bed, lay out your walking clothes and shoes.

If you decide to walk at night, the AHA reminds you to wear reflective clothing or carry a light.
