Benefits of Going For A Long Walk Daily- How Far and How Long

How long should you walk, and how often?

So you’re convinced. It’s time to take up a daily walking routine. But how long should you walk and how often? It depends on what you want to achieve. To decrease health risks such as heart disease, you need to exercise at a moderate level for 30 minutes at least four days a week. Fortunately, this doesn’t mean you need to get on the treadmill and stay there for 30 minutes. Researchers have found that it’s the total time spent exercising daily that matters, even if your 30 minutes is split up in 10-minute increments throughout the day. Walking is the perfect form of exercise to split up this way. If you live close enough, take a short walk to work. Walk over to a friend’s house instead of driving. Those small increments of walking add up.
