Are you looking for an easy walking challenge that will make you want to leave your sofa? If you’re someone who spends most of their day sitting behind a computer screen like me, it’s important that you make some time to walk during the day. Not only should you add some type of exercise to your daily routine, but you should try to stay as active as possible during the day. So, whether your busy schedule has been preventing you from going on walks or you have never been someone who enjoys walking, below I’m sharing an easy walking challenge for absolute beginners!

THE IMPORTANCE OF WALKING DAILY
There are both physical and mental health benefits of walking daily. Just do a quick google search and you’ll be amazed!
If walking daily can help improve your health in any way, why not do it?
While it’s recommended to walk at least 30 minutes a day in order to maintain a good overall health, it’s not always easy to find 30 minutes to spare. I personally only walk for 20 minutes daily because of that’s how much free time I have for evening or morning walks.
So, since I only have time for 20 minute walks, I have to squeeze in more minutes for some activity during the day.
That’s why I have created a very convenient walking challenge for people who don’t have much time to walk and people who don’t like walking.
EASY WALKING CHALLENGE FOR BEGINNERS
Are you ready to learn about my easy walking challenge that will help you walk more, get your sedentary body moving, and increase your daily steps? If so, let’s get right to it!
WALKING CHALLENGE FOR BEGINNERS RULES
Walk three minutes for every hour of the day that you’re awake for.
Take three minutes (nothing more, nothing less) every hour to just walk.
You don’t have to go outside to walk, you can just walk right where you are.
This challenge begins the moment you wake up and ends the moment you go to bed.
For example, if you’re awake from 6 A.M – 11 P.M then you will walk three minutes for every one of the 17 hours that you’re awake for.
So by the end of the day, you should have walked for a total of 51 minutes. 51 MINUTES! What? Yeah, you read that right.
