Walking Through Life continued...

Out and About

  • Get off a stop or two early on the bus or subway, and walk the rest of the way.
  • Park farther away at the shopping mall, and walk the extra distance.
  • Walk around while waiting for a relative or friend's game to begin.
  • Walk while waiting for the plane at the airport.
  • See the sights in new cities by walking.
  • At the beach, sit and watch the waves instead of lying flat. Better yet, get up and walk, run, or fly a kite.
  • When golfing, walk instead of using a cart.

Advice for Caregivers of Children
