Walking is one of the easiest ways to get the exercise you need to stay healthy.
Experts recommend at least 2½ hours of moderate activity (such as brisk walking, brisk cycling, or yard work) a week.footnote 1 It's fine to walk in blocks of 10 minutes or more throughout your day and week.
Think of walking as an easy way to burn calories and stay fit while you go about your daily routine. You can make walking an important part of your life by getting friends and family to join you and by finding new ways to put steps in your day.
