We recommend walking 30 minutes a day. Fair enough, you say, but why this recommendation in particular? Read on to understand what 30 minutes of walking does to your body.READ MORE
You need to walk an extra 30 minutes on top of what you normally walk! But don't worry, we already walk more than 6,000 steps per day every day and an additional 30 minutes is only 3,000 to 4,000 extra steps! It is therefore easily possible to walk 10,000 steps per day as recommended by the Japanese doctor Yoshiro Hatano, renowned health sciences and sports* professor and researcher and expert in the study of the practice and benefits of walking. In Japan, a great deal of importance is given to going out for walks and this doctor has shown that it lets you stay in better health!
This keeps you generally fit and healthy, but also improves your physical condition (by building muscles, promoting blood circulation and keeping you flexible, for example). Nothing but good news then! And the icing on the cake is that you don't have to walk the 30 minutes all at once! You are free to schedule your walking however you like! So, no panic, with your daily activities and few minor adjustments, you should soon be able to add on those extra 30 minutes!
This level is good for health as it is regular and on a daily basis. 30 extra minutes of walking per day are therefore more effective than doing one intensive activity on Sundays, although doing one need not stop you from doing the other. Note that for children, the recommendation is 1 hour per day, even if our kids often do much more than this without needing to be told!
Obviously, if you do more than 30 minutes a day, that's great! The more you walk, the better it is for your body.
So, how much do you think you walk every day?
