10 Steps to Natural Weight Loss and Health: Step 1, Daily Walking

By Smarty More Blogs by This Author

Daily Walking is the first step towards Natural Weight Loss and Health. It is one of the most important and easy things you can do for your body. I'm not saying you should go out and walk five miles a day. Just a simple thirty minute walk each day is ideal. Natural Weight loss cannot be achieved by just watching what you eat and sitting around all day. You have to work at it too. Walking can help to boost your metabolism which is an important factor when trying to lose weight.

Getting Started

Walking by yourself can be boring and you could find yourself doing it less and less. Achieving Natural Weight Loss and Health can be done with someone or a group of people. Group walking keeps everyone excited and determined. If you can't walk with anyone, it is a good way for you to spend time with you dog. Dogs love walking more than humans do.

When to Walk

Morning: Getting up in the morning and going for a walk can be beneficial, not just for weight loss, but it can give you energy for the rest of your day. Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins give you a natural energy and make you feel happy. After you walk in the morning it is important to also eat a healthy breakfast. Afternoon: Some people enjoy taking their daily walks during their lunch breaks at work. It's a great way to re energize yourself and get your mind back into your day. Walking and exercise can help you to relax, just remember than the next time your having a stressful day. Evening: Another great time to walk is in the evening. It is generally cooler outside in the evenings and it can be very relaxing. Taking your dog around the block or walking your kids up to the park is perfect for getting your exercise in and spending time with your family. Eating a healthy dinner before you go out and walk is just as important.

Benefits of Walking

There are so many benefits of walking daily and getting yourself into a healthy routine. Weight loss is of course what most people are trying to achieve. Just being healthier and feeling better about yourself is what is really important. Walking and Exercise are great ways to de-stress your overstressed self. Just remember, walking is only Step 1.
