It seems as if we go into a time warp during the holidays where everything speeds up, leaving little time for exercise. However, even some exercise is better than no exercise and maintaining a simple walking routine can help you stay active wherever you are, with whatever time you have — no gym or fancy equipment required.
This simple walking plan is easy to customize according to your schedule. For example, if you only have 10 minutes one day to fit something in, try the speed-walk option. If you get a day (or a week) with more time, focus on longer sessions.
The goal of these simple, time-efficient walks is to help you maintain your fitness and stay healthy (walking helps boost your immunity) during this busy season. The flexibility of this program is its major selling point. You can even get the whole family involved. The speed and interval walks can be turned into a fun game (who can reach the next mailbox the fastest?); while power walks can be an opportunity to catch up and connect.
