Yes, it’s that easy

Whether you religiously monitor your daily steps with a Fitbit everyday or work a desk job and don’t have the luxury of being active for a living (like me), it should come to no surprise that walking is good for you.

“No shit dude”

Yeah, I know, but hear me out.

Walking is underrated in my opinion. We’re constantly bombarded with “trendy workouts” and social media posts promoting many different types of cardio and exercises such as: tabata training, HIT, or jogging. Those are awesome, don’t get me wrong. If they work for you and you kick ass doing them, keep up the good work! When done correctly, the benefits they offer are incredible. If anything, a society with more knowledge of how to stay in shape and keep healthy is better than one without it.

However, for the average joe, or even those who do embrace a fitness-oriented lifestyle, the offerings mentioned above could easily overwhelm or discourage longevity and sustainable good habits.

We’ve all been with “that friend” who was way fitter than us and put us to shame for even attempting whatever crazy routine they were doing

Back to my original point:

Walking remains the often unsung hero of exercise. I’d even venture one step further and assert that it is also one of, if not the best, drivers of mental clarity.

While all of us might have slightly different motivations for staying in shape or trying to be healthy, one thing is certain: we want to feel good in some way. Moreover, you can’t make excuses and it involves your entire body. You don’t need any equipment, you can theoretically do it anywhere, and it can be tailored to any level of fitness or experience.

The daily approach I wish to share is what I call the “3 Walk Rule”. It has changed my life drastically (more on that in another post) and I encourage you to at least try it out. If it sounds too good or easy to be true, it’s because it is.
