Set yourself up for success

Make a realistic goal for yourself. Figure out which days you have the most time in your schedule to walk for your health. What time during the day works best for you? Is there a neighborhood you have driven past but have yet to venture in? Take a walk there. Just breathing in the fresh air, noticing the different landscapes basically getting your mind of off everything but you “right here, right now” will have you falling in love with this new ritual of yours. If you are one who prefers not to be alone, ask a friend to join you.

Walking is a must for me. I enjoy a change of scenery every now and then. I have a few neighborhoods I love to walk in. I am also blessed with living near the beach. woman walking on the beachSmelling the salt air, listening to the fog horns and watching the waves roll in while walking has become one of my favorite ways to destress and feel healthy.

If you should miss a day or two of your weekly goals, don’t get down on yourself. Remind yourself how good it makes you feel and how amazing it is for your health, body and soul.

Important to remember

  • Don’t forget to choose something comfortable to wear both on your body and your feet. Wear *clothes that absorb sweat and are *comfortably stretchy. Wear shoes with proper arch support and thick flexible soles to absorb shock. *Make sure to wear a high visibility reflective vest when walking in the dark .
  • Do a light body stretch before and after your walk to prevent injury.
  • Bring water to stay hydrated. Don’t forget to drink it! *These are great water bottles to have on hand. Not to mention, if you switch hands that you carry the water bottle in every so often while walking it can act as a hand weight!
  • Let someone know where you will be taking your walk for your own safety.

Happy Walking!!!
