Every January, the pressure to get fit and stay active is more than ever. However, many of us already know the joy of walking and keeping fit. So, whether you are an avid walker or are just starting to get the hang of this active lifestyle – we have just what you need. Here are some tips to help make your new (or old) walking habit a thing to really enjoy:
- Incorporate walking into your everyday life
Instead of driving the ten minutes to work or waiting for the bus, pop your walking shoes on and get some well-deserved me-time on the way to the office.
- Start small
Don’t dive head first into 10k walks and expect not to feel fed up very soon. Even 30 minutes of walking daily can reap amazing health benefits so start small and work your way up the fitness ladder the right way.
- Dress appropriately and stay safe
If the weather is cold make sure you wrap up and keep your extremities cozy. If evening walks are your thing, ensure you have reflective gear so that cars can see you clearly and stay in well lit areas.
- Stay hydrated
Nothing ruins a good walk like thirst. To stay alert and hydrated – especially on longer treks – ensure you pack some water with you.
- Invest in a quality pair of walking shoes
Purchasing Walking shoes that will stand the test of time, give you superior comfort and value for money requires some research. Luckily for you, we have some experience in footwear so we have gathered some of the best shoes to see you through 2016.
