Walking for just 30 minutes a day can make a huge difference to your health and is perfect for those of us who aren’t able to get to the gym. If you need a little inspiration, put on your walking shoes and try getting in some steps one of these carefree ways.
Need to be excited to go on a walk? Jump in the car and head to that place everyone is talking about on the ‘gram. Going for mini adventures is great for your soul and helps you exercise without you even realising it. Grab some girlfriends, pack a picnic and have a day out in the sun.
Take on the city
Whether you’re visiting a new city of you’re heading out to do some shopping in your own, putting on your walking shoes and do a little exploring. Walking around the shops, down by the waterfront or even between coffee stops can rack up the steps – you’ll be 30 minutes in before you even know it.
Grab your partner and head down to a local beach or scenic walk for a post dinner stroll. This is a great way to get both of you out of the house and gives you a chance to catch up on the work day.
Catch up with a friend
Everything is easier with a friend, so call up one of the girls and meet them for coffee and walk. There are a tonne of wonderful places to go for a leisurely stroll in every city so you won’t be short of options.
Get into nature
Not all nature walks have to be massive hikes, but if that is what you’re into, there are a tonne of beautiful hiking areas across the country. If you’re not feeling fit enough for that just yet, you can find little bush walks that will help bump up your heart rate and take you to see some stunning hidden gems. Tip: try and find a walk that leads you to a waterfall or a lookout as paths are usually well looked after and there are manageable stairs for most fitness levels.
