With your smartphone tucked away in your pocket, it’s time to take a walk.
But is it the right time to do so?
Here are the top tips to make sure you’re in the best possible physical and mental shape to get the most out of your trip.
Walk outside in public The best time to walk outside is between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., according to the American Heart Association.
If you’re heading to a restaurant or a movie theater, you’ll want to be in public because it’s when people can see you from all sides.
In some cities, such as Washington, D.C., and New York, the walk is extended to 6 p.p.m.; you can find more details on the American Diabetes Association’s walk schedule.
And you can walk on sidewalks in the city, too, if you’re wearing a walker.
So, no matter where you go, there are plenty of options.
Be aware of the hazards walking alone is dangerous Some people have suggested walking alone in public places, such a park, to protect against falling and other injuries.
The American Heart Institute recommends people stay away from crowds and take the opportunity to observe others.
The National Association of State and Territorial Sheriffs Association (NASSTSA) says there are no known cases of people walking alone on a roadway.
But that doesn’t mean you should walk alone if you have to.
Walking alone can be dangerous.
Take your shoes off, check your pulse, wear a headband, and use your smartphone to look around, said John Capp, chief of police in Los Angeles County.
It can also make it more difficult to stay in the car if you’ve got to pick up or drop off a friend.
Get out and walk for fun If you like to walk, take a leisurely walk, Capp said.
“The main thing is to be mindful of your surroundings and your health,” he said.
And if you want to exercise, get out and enjoy the environment.
Capp recommends a walk in a wooded area, on a hillside or in a city park, where there’s plenty of shade.
You might even enjoy the solitude and solitude in nature.
“If you do a leisure walk in the woods, it gives you a sense of freedom, which is really important,” he added.
Stay hydrated Get some water and hydrate before you leave.
“You can eat something to hydrate and drink something to keep hydrated,” said Dan O’Connell, a physician and assistant professor of medicine at the University of Southern California School of Medicine.
“And you might need to be extra careful with your water, because it can dry up during a storm.”
If you don’t drink enough fluids, you can also get dehydrated.
And the more you drink, the worse your immune system can get, which can make you sick.
Be patient If you have a problem with allergies or asthma, it can be difficult to take your smartphone out of its pocket or bag and leave it for a few minutes.
But it can also be worth it to take time to be patient.
“It’s important that you have the opportunity for your phone to get back into your pocket or in your bag, and that it be as convenient as possible,” O’Donnell said.
If your smartphone doesn’t have a charger, you might be able to charge it by taking a walk, but if you don, you’re still taking the risk of having your phone on the move.
“There are many things that you could do to keep it in your hand and be mindful that your phone is not in your hands when you leave your home,” Capp added.
Avoid driving When you’re outside, be aware of all the dangers and hazards, O’Brien said.
You can also take your phone with you when you go on a drive, whether to get a ride or go shopping.
But, if it’s in a bag, you should also take the time to secure it before leaving.
“I think it’s a very good idea to take it with you, but be careful,” O.
Stay active and hydrated Stay active by walking, taking walks and exercising.
This can help with weight loss, reduce inflammation, and protect your heart.
“Don’t just do one thing,” O’sBrien said, adding that a good exercise plan can also help you lose weight.
“A lot of people just do the same thing.
You just do it at a certain level of intensity,” he explained.
And as you get more and more physically active, you may find that you need to stop to stretch.
You should also keep your hydration levels up.
O’Connor recommends drinking lots of fluids, such to prevent overheating.
If it’s cold outside, use a thermos, but it’s important to drink enough water to keep your body at a healthy temperature. 8
