Also, Walk Daily for 10 to 20 Minutes

In another post, Courtney also stresses the importance of "walking daily" and claims that you don't even have to get 10,000 steps in. She suggests 10 to 20 minutes, which she does on the treadmill. Walking briskly on a daily basis can help you maintain a healthy weight and lose body fat, prevent or manage various conditions, including heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, cancer, and type 2 diabetes, says the Mayo Clinic. It can also help improve cardiovascular fitness, strengthen your bones and muscles, improve muscle endurance, increase energy levels, improve your mood, cognition, memory, and sleep, improve your balance and coordination, strengthen your immune system, and reduce stress and tension.
