I explored many physical activities and found walking as one of the most popular form of daily exercise I could adopt for my optimal health.
Its been over 8 years I started doing brisk walking and its became my way of life. I start my day by walking 5Kms as a single stretch and 4Kms during rest of the day by walking in break time and by taking steps instead of lift.
My total investment from past 9 years for walking is ₹4500 [$70] for my first shoes. I still use the same shoe for daily walks. From past 5 years I started walking barefoot thrice a week, I enjoy walking barefoot without any difficulty.
Note: Explore the walking track before trying the barefoot walk.
