Take you pick – walking fast, jogging, cleaning the yard, tidying up the house, etc. Just keep your body moving. Walking is one of the easiest ways to get more active. After all, we do it all the time. Studies have shown that walking on regular basis for about 30 minutes non-stop can reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, stroke and some cancers. Try to walk about 10,000 steps a day.
