Walking is one of those near perfect exercises; pretty much anyone can do it, it’s free, you don’t need any specific training or coaching on how to do it, you don’t need any special equipment to do it, you just do it. The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology recommends people get 150 minutes of exercise per week. A 10 minute walk after breakfast and dinner will pretty much cover it.

Most of my days start with sitting in front of a computer, even before I sit down for breakfast. I may walk to the subway, where I sit on the train, before sitting again in series of meetings. I remember the day, 15 years ago, when I quit smoking and congratulated myself on how the decision would not only improve my health, but my productivity too, since I no longer had a reason to get up from my desk. I feel as though I’ve been sitting ever since.
