I often recommend to my patients that they at least try walking. Not only is walking the perfect starting point for people who are not accustomed to any type of physical activity, but it’s one of the most accessible forms of exercise around. You simply put on a comfortable pair of shoes (preferably ones made for walking and/or running) and step outside. You can also add as much or as little intensity to your walks as you like. This is done through speed, inclines and declines, and how long you spend walking. Try to walk thirty to forty minutes every day, but if you hate walking, don’t do it! Forcing yourself to do anything you don’t like is stressful. So if walking drives you crazy, but you love to dance, swim, cycle, run—you name it—you’re in business.
