Walking

When you find exercise difficult or aren't sure how to be more active, walking is a great activity.

A daily walk, even if it's just a 15-minute stroll, is really good for you.

A Little Everyday

Don't feel that you have to take long walks every day.

It's better to make walking a part of your everyday routine. If your pace makes you feel a bit out of breath, but you can still hold a conversation, that's ideal. But if that's not manageable for you right now, any kind of activity is better than nothing!
