That’s right … MOVE IT!

Get off your duff and go for a simple 20-30 minute walk (after a meal is the best time). With very limited exceptions, walking is the easiest exercise for people of all ages. I’m reminded of my Grandmother who would walk around the block everyday – rain or shine – and did so up until 3 weeks before her passing at the age of 94 (and a half, but who’s counting).

It is recommended taking a 20-30 minute brisk walk a minimum of 3 times a week – daily would be optimal. We’re not talking SPEED WALKING over here, we’re simply walking … like we have somewhere to go. You know, walk with purpose. You’re not looking to break a sweat, but you are looking for more than a leisurely stroll.

“I don’t have time to walk 20 to 30 minutes”

Fine, walk for 10 minutes at a time throughout the day. Take a mid-morning break and stretch your legs. Take a walk on your lunch hour. You can also make a plan to accomplish some errands along the way.

You may not see or feel results tomorrow, next week or next month – but it’s the little things, done consistently, over time, that make the difference!

  6. The walk. It’s simple. It’s nice. It’s pleasant and it probably puts more years of life on your body and keeps the brain working better. Great advice Neil

  7. Plus I DO like that musical number from Madagascar the Disney animated movie. I like taking a 10 minute walkies after a meal. When I had a corporate job in the early days of internet relationship ecommerce industry, I would leave the last 15 minutes of my lunch hour to get OUT of the building, take a 10 minute walk around the city block, and get back to my office. I would walk with colleagues to double duty build the team relationships at the same time!

    I like to walk everywhere. Even though I live in a big city like Barcelona I find it more enjoyable and pleasent to walk that takling the bus or train. Of course it takes more time, but is also healthy!

    Great way to get the point across. Yes, the simple strategies often work the best. I certainly feel the difference if I don’t get my exercise in.
