What Is Best To Wear During Your Walks
This month we are challenging you to get outside and walk. We are challenging you to allow the nature of walking to help you get in better shape and therefore better health.
What we know for sure is walking is the connection to living a healthy and vibrant life and we believe walking inspires the mind, activates the body and nourishes the soul.
So, today we want to welcome you back to the 21-Day Walking Challenge. Today is day 2, and we’re going to discuss what is best to wear during your walks.
Here a look at today’s walk:
Your Walk Today: 15 minutes long
Today’s Tip: Prepare for Your Walk with the Right Fitness Clothing
Yep, it’s an easy day. You will be walking for 15 minutes just like yesterday. But don’t get too comfortable – tomorrow you will be walking a little bit longer than today.
Now is a good time to talk about what you are wearing on your walks. With these shorter walks, it probably isn’t as big of a deal. Walking for 15 minutes is probably a length of time you are comfortable with and have walked many times before, even in your work clothes.
Now, when we start walking for 30-40 minutes and more, you definitely want to consider your workout clothing. Here are just a few tips for choosing what to wear during your walks:
What is the weather like?
To start with, consider the current weather conditions when deciding if layers is necessary. Average 70-degree days are fine for just about anything, but if it’s a cold day, you want a few layers on. At the very least, two layers, so that you can remove your jacket or hoodie when it starts getting a little warm.
How comfortable are you?
Make sure your walking clothes are comfortable and flexible. If you are constantly adjusting your leggings, or your sports bra is digging into your sides, you will spend more time adjusting your clothing and being frustrated than actually enjoying your walk. And we believe the point of getting out for a daily walk is to enjoy the time spent outdoors walking, right?
How do your feet feel?
Don’t forget about your shoes! They must be comfortable, fit well, and have enough room for you to wiggle your toes. In our experience, it is best to have at least a couple of pairs of comfortable shoes and rotate daily. This way your shoes have a chance to dry out completely before your next walking session in that pair. The shoes will last longer and be more comfortable in our experience as well.
The point of talking about what is best to wear during your walks is simply for you to dress comfortably as you can as you are beginning to practice daily walking. This way when you get out for your longer walks you are already in the habit of dressing comfortably in a way that allows you to enjoy your time outdoors.
Will you take the time today to get outdoors, dressed comfortably for a 15-minute walk?
We appreciate that it never seems as if there are enough hours in the day, but it is so important to make a conscious decision to practice moving well and we believe that walking is the most accessible form of exercise on the planet. Taking care of your mind, body and emotional needs will help you be able to live your best life.
You are your best advocate; if you are not moving well each day, it is easy to get burned out by all of life's demands. Taking some time each day for yourself to get outside and walk can have a profound impact on your well-being. Physical fitness and moving well begin and ends with you!
