Healthy Habit No. 12: Take a Daily Walk

We already mentioned the merits of exercise in habit No. 5. Now, here's a tip on how to incorporate physical activity into your daily life: WALK.

We're not talking about taking the time out of your busy schedule to work out -- that's important, too -- but infusing life- and limb-saving movement into your waking hours.

"Just move. Pace during phone calls, while you're brushing your teeth, while watching your son's soccer game," says Bryant, noting that every 20 steps a person takes is 1 calorie burned.

An eight-year study of 13,000 people also showed that people who walked 30 minutes daily had a significantly reduced chance of premature death compared with those who rarely exercised, reports the American Council on Exercise.

And there are plenty of opportunities to move those legs:

* Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
* Walk to the store.
* Window shop at the mall.
* Leave your desk and visit your co-worker instead of sending him an email.
* Walk and talk with friends instead of meeting for a meal.

After 4 heart attacks, I finally got the message and began to exercise. Brisk walking has become a regular part of my daily life. Not only is it good for my heart, but I find it helps to relieve stress and I do some of my best thinking while I walk. I recommend the same to the readers of my blog, http://www.theperfectsense.com/

A fantastic method to discover how to burn off belly fat may be to recognize that sit-ups and ab crunches on their own are not that effective all on their own!

Furthermore, stomach crunches are known to tone your upper abdominals and leg raises are recognized to shape your lower abdominal muscles, so in case you do these with the correct nutrition and workout schedules, you will be fit very quickly!
