Walking is a great way to have some daily exercise.

Consider joining a walking group if you are not someone who prefers to exercise on your own. Just get moving!

Inexpensive way to exercise

Walking also allows you the flexibility to do it at the time of day that suits your lifestyle, whereas joining specific exercise classes may only be available at an allocated time. This flexibility is an added advantage as you do not have to miss out on a workout if you are running late or stuck in traffic, for example.

Best of all, you can take along whatever company you want, whether it’s a spouse or your pet dog. You may even make new friends who are also engaging in exercise at this time.
