Activity Snacks

MARKET WALKING

This month’s example of an activity snack is “market walking.” Take some laps around the perimeter of a store before you start shopping. Or next time you head to the market park farther from the entrance or if you live close enough, walk to the market from your house. If you take the bus, you can even get off one stop earlier and walk the rest of the way to the store. Parking a greater distance from the entrance can provide you with the physical activity you need in your routine. Try to get in 5 or more market laps before shopping.

“Market walking” can be done anywhere, in any weather and any time of day:

  • Mall

  • Home improvement store

  • Drug store

  • Bus stop

 Remember to find the activity snack that is best for you.
