Fitness: why walking is cool.

Walking isn’t just for old people. Casual observation has found, in fact, that people of all age have been doing it literally since we became a species. In fact, walking upright is what defined us as being homosapiens in itself.

So why are so many people avoiding it?

I love to walk. I like to bike too, but there’s something more meditative about walking. The pace is even, you usually shouldn’t get out of breath and it’s way easier to multitask on your phone when you aren’t using your other hand to balance some handle bars.

Making exercise an integrated part of a daily routine is important. The more it becomes simply ‘what you do,’ the more you forget that you’re getting exercise. And the less you have to worry about keeping that spare pair (or two) of fat pants.
