Health Tip of the Day

Putting Interest in Your Daily Walk

  • Change your route. Turn a different direction when you leave the house. Drive to a different neighborhood and walk a loop back to your car.

  • Change your pace. Walk fast one day, a bit slower the next.

  • Change your goals. Try focusing on increasing your distance if you've been working to increase your speed.

  • Walk with a gadget. A heart-rate monitor, walking poles or a pedometer can add interest to your walk.

  • Walk a dog. Dogs offer companionship, a deterrent to criminals and a good reason to stick with your regular routine.
