3 Reasons to Start a Walking Routine Right Now

By Genevieve Cunningham

Getting in shape is always a good idea. It’s never too late to begin an exercise routine, and if you don’t already have one, the best time to begin is now! But even though we know this to be true, many of us have a hard time implementing change. We have a hard time choosing the right exercise program or making it happen on a consistent basis. If this sounds familiar, it might be time to make it simple. Instead of searching for the perfect program, just start walking! If you’re ready to change your health and life for the better, take a look at these reasons to start a walking routine today.

It’s a Great Time of Year

It’s still hot outside, but it won’t be long until the temperatures start inching their way down. And good weather makes walking outside so incredibly appealing. Along with great weather, now is also a great time to put your health first. With the fall winds blowing in soon, illness is undoubtedly on its way. While walking can’t help you avoid germs, it might help boost your immune system and enable you to fight off the influx of germs. If you begin your walking routine now, you may be able to lose some weight, boost your health, and get your immune system up and running before the cold and holidays are here.

It’s Easy to Include Friends and Family

Everything is easier with a buddy. If you have a group of friends to exercise with, it becomes so much easier to show up. Accountability is huge. But beyond accountability, having a group also makes it more fun. Take your friends, family, kids, or anyone else. Walking is easy enough to include a wide variety of people and effective enough to really work.

It’s a Great Way to Feel Good

Walking feels good. It’s not so hard that it leaves you out of breath or sore, but it still strengthens the muscles and improves flexibility. Those who walk on a regular basis report higher levels of basic health. In other words, they just feel better. If you’re looking for a way to improve your health and also feel a little better on a daily basis, beginning a regular walking routine is a great place to start.

Many shy away from walking, as they think it’s too easy or that it won’t help them reach their goals. But the truth is that walking is an incredible exercise! Find some supportive shoes and a place to walk some laps and get moving. You may find that walking is an exercise that is effective now and one that you can keep long into the future.
