One of the best things about exercise is that in order to reap its amazing benefits, you don't have to do it all at once. This means that if you would like to get in at least 45 minutes of walking daily, you can break it up into segments throughout the day and still benefit.
So a sample plan for getting in 45 minutes of walking in:
- Start by waking up with a 15 minute walk in the morning with the dog.
- Take a 15 minute break during the work day to go for another short walk.
- When you get home from work, take a 15 minute walk to de-stress from the day -- Bring along the dog again so he can get in another walk too.
This way by dinner, you've gotten in 45 minutes and it didn't ever feel like a chore, now did it?
