Have you noticed the recent trend of walking pads? I don’t know about you, but I see it all the time on TikTok. Especially since a lot of jobs nowadays are remote, these walking pads are a great investment. Most people sit at a desk and work for hours on end. Your body needs to move throughout the day and a walking pad can help you achieve that!
- Better mood
- Improved sleep
- Stronger joints
- Less stress
- Lowers risk for cardiovascular disease
- Walk at least 30 minutes a day
- You can split this up into 3-10 minute walks or however you see fit
- Aim for 5 days a week
It is recommended that people exercise 150 minutes a week at a moderate intensity. However, people are easily tired from working all day and don’t want to exercise after. However, with a walking pad you can walk and work at the same time! Plus, exercising will help you avoid that midday slump and make you more productive!
