TAKE STEPS TO MOVE MORE
Brisk walking is simply walking quicker than usual, at a pace that gets your heart pumping faster and makes you feel slightly out of breath. Research shows that instead of the number of steps or the distance walked, it’s the combination of the intensity of the exercise and how long you’re doing it for that leads to the health benefits.
More intense exercise can benefit those who are able to make the commitment to this, while brisk walking is for people who find it difficult to find the time to fit exercise into their day.
