10 ways to add fun to your walk

Walking in your house or outside is the easy way to get some exercise these days

With social distancing in place, walking alone is the new pattern. Here are 10 ways to add fun to your walk.

  1. Vary your stride- take high steps, long steps or walk sideways
  2. Do arm circles as you walk
  3. Pick bird, plant or tree as a topic and try to identify as many as you can on your walk
  4. Add in random exercises: squats, toe raises, lunges, tree or fence push ups
  5. Whistle or hum random tunes 
  6. Stop and shake your whole body to release tension 
  7. Pump your arms like you are running fast
  8. Breath- long slow deep breaths
  9. Look for beauty in your surroundings
  10. Try walking mediation- focus your mind on your feet and how each step feels 

 

Get creative and add fun to your walking by looking around and enjoying the beauty around you

No matter what you do get outside when you can, exercise in fresh air is good for your mental health. Walk around your house or all of these ideas can be done walking in place to music of your choice. Self care is not optional, it is critical to your overall health.
