Summer is too hot, and winter is too cold. Right now, though, the weather is just right for walking to work. Or school. Or the market. Autumn is the perfect time of year to lace up those walking shoes and step out onto the street to walk your way to wherever you are going.
5 Reasons to Strap on those Walking Shoes and Walk to Work
1. It’s Free
With soaring gas prices, a free ride is impossible. Unless it’s your walking shoes that are carrying you. Public transportation is cheaper than gas, but it can still get expensive. Especially since ticket prices reflect the rising gas prices, you are trying to avoid them by not taking your car.
2. It Could Be Faster
Some major cities battle extreme traffic depending on where you live. Slipping on those walking shoes and hoofing it to work might save you time.
3. It Does Not Cause Pollution
The average car produces 36 pounds of carbon dioxide per 30 miles. Multiply that by how far you work and factor in how many days a week you work; the numbers can get extremely high.
Fact: It takes an average human to walk about 20 miles per hour. That means you can walk 3 miles in an hour—if you are not in a hurry. If you want to push your walking shoes harder and speed it up a notch, you could walk as many as 5 miles in an hour. Or, you could jog. If you are a healthy middle-aged person, you can jog a mile in an average of 9 minutes. That is a little more than 6 miles in an hour.
4. Me Time
Need time to think? Need fresh air and quiet so you can get your thoughts in order? Wearing fitness shoes to walk to work is the perfect way for you to get time for yourself.
5. Live Longer
Studies have shown that physically active people live an average of 3 years longer than those who do not. Being physically active does not have to be difficult. Just find your most comfortable walking shoes and hit the road to work!
