5 Easy ways to make walking a habit
Make it fun
If you usually enjoy listening to a podcast or a radio program, make a point of listening to it while you are walking. You'll be having fun and doing exercise at the same time.
Make walking easier by wearing clothes you feel good in. Walking in yoga pants is much comfortable than walking in a pair of jeans, so when you set out to do some exercise, wear the appropriate outfit.
Track your steps
I love using my phone to track the progress that I've done, it is a good idea to try to increase the number of steps you take a day, make it some sort of game.
Use the time to set your intentions
I love walking because it allows me the time to let my mind float and manifest all my intentions. I imagine myself getting where I want to be without feeling guilty for wasting productive time daydreaming.
Walk somewhere new every day
Try to appreciate your surroundings by walking around new places every day. It's is a perfect time to spend in the open and breathe some fresh air.
