Combining two things that are good for you - walking and being outside - is easy to do and can be hugely beneficial for your creativity and psychological & physical well-being.
Walk outside on a regular basis, at any speed you’d like (faster walks are better for fitness). Each walk should be at least 20 minutes long - or thereabouts. To get the most out of being outside, walks should occur within natural features like parks, forests or merely a few trees planted along an avenue. In general though, greener is better.
At least 20 minutes a day
Scientists have identified no risks associated with walking outside. However, walking in dangerous areas during dark hours is not advised.
