Walking is a simple way to get in shape and relax after a stressful day. It doesn’t require any fancy equipment and is a great activity to help you start being more active. Walking can easily be fit into your daily routine – commuting to work, dropping the kids off at school or carrying out errands.
Exploring your neighbourhood on-foot is a great way to meet your neighbours and get to know your community. Walking to local shops and restaurants gives you fresh air, exercise and saves you from finding a parking space.
Your commute can provide a great opportunity to fit in exercise. If you live close enough to walk or bike, try it one day a week. If you live near a transit route, get off the bus a few stops early.
