Walking is easily the most popular form of exercise. Here are some ideas to keep in mind during your next workout:
* Listen to your body when you walk. If you develop dizziness, pain, nausea, or any other unusual symptom, slow down or stop. If the problem persists, see your physician before walking again.
* Don’t try to compete with others when walking. Even individuals of similar age and build vary widely in their capacity for exercise. Your objective should be to steadily improve your own performance, not to walk farther or faster than someone else.
* The most important thing is simply to set aside part of each day and walk. No matter what your age or condition, it’s a practice that can make you healthier and happier.
