Here are some useful walking tips:

– Pick a suitable pace, as in order to burn calories, you need to walk about 3.5 miles an hour.
– To burn more calories, try an incline walk
– Always wear flexible, low-heeled, cushioned, comfortable shoes
– Walk with the shoulders down, the chin parallel to the ground, and looking straight ahead
– Swing the arms while walking, bend them at 90 degrees and pump the shoulders

You can start walking more by making some tiny changes into your daily routine:

– Take the stairs instead of the elevator
– Walk to school or work
– Go for a short walk after dinner or lunch with friends
– Get off several bus stops before your destination when taking public transport
– Always park your car a bit further and walk to the destination
– Try walk-and-talk meetings at work
– Take your dog for a walk
– Listen to your favorite podcast and walk

Dr.Mercola also suggests:

“While you’re getting in the habit of a daily walk, choose a spot that’s suitable for barefoot walking – like a grassy park or sandy beach – and give it a try. In addition to the physical benefits of walking, walking barefoot allows your body to absorb free electrons from the Earth through the soles of your feet, a practice known as grounding.

These electrons have powerful antioxidant effects that can protect your body from inflammation and its many well-documented health consequences. For example, one scientific review published in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health concluded that grounding (walking barefoot on the earth) could improve a number of health conditions, including the following:

– Sleep disturbances, including sleep apnea
– Chronic muscle and joint pain, and other types of pain
– Asthmatic and respiratory conditions
– Rheumatoid arthritis
– PMS
– Hypertension
– Energy levels
– Stress
– Immune system activity and response
– Heart rate variability
– Primary indicators of osteoporosis
– Fasting glucose levels among people with diabetes

I recommend using a pedometer, or better yet, one of the newer wearable fitness trackers, to keep track and find out how far you normally walk. At first, you may be surprised to realize just how little you move each day.

Tracking your steps can also show you how simple and seemingly minor changes to the way you move around during the day can add up. Plus, it’s motivating to see your steps increase throughout the day.”
