If you are the person who hates going outside or is not really a nature fan but you want to live a fit and healthy life which involves doing a lot of walking for your cardio needs, fear and worry no more. Walking does not necessarily have to be done outside. If you feel safer and more comfortable within the four walls of an infrastructure instead of being around trees and leaves while breathing in some fresh air, there is no problem with that. You could do all the walking indoors.
Although location appears to be a highly important factor in many aspects of life, exercising is not on the list. Location does not matter at all for healthy walking. As long as you could walk at a comfortably quick pace whether be it in your home, office, school, mall, or wherever, you are getting the waking benefits that are no less than the walking benefits you would get from walking outdoors. But if the aura of your environment which is mainly composed of walls, and more walls, prohibits you from beginning to exercise, just think of its benefits. In general, walking cuts the risk of all diseases and lowers your chances of dying though you eventually would, but still. Also, it cuts on the pounds. If those bouncing fats on your belly and arms are starting to bother and freak you out, better start walking.
So, when you have already found a convenient indoor place where you would do a lot of walking, it could easily squeeze into your tight schedule. That is the great edge of walking indoors- no intense demand on the location and your time. You could take a walking break anytime. Maybe a trip to the comfort room could help. It could be better if you go to a comfort room quite distant from where you are to be able to walk more. Walk the halls. Explore the building. When you are at home, go check every room. To make you walking around the house a little but more fun, find a fast-paced and rocking music to complement your stroll.
If you are such an ardent fan of shopping, then it is good for you. Your walking exercise still applies at the mall. Before finally buying that lovely top, why not try to check each and every stall and scour the entire department store to make sure you find the best one. Not only would you be able to do your walking exercise, you would also be saving every cent for the best buy. Yes, malls are indeed a great place for walking. It is easy to find a parking space, it is air-conditioned, there are so many things to feast your eyes on- clothes, shoes and accessories, and there are many cafes and restaurants to treat yourself to after triumphantly doing your workout.
This last reminder may be the simplest but it could work out really well. Do not forget the stairs. Keep away from elevators. Yes, use the stairs. Going up and down the stairs are a great way to exercise.
