Take A Walk After Your Meals

35

Walking in the morning is a great routine, but walking after each meal and in the evenings, is also a good habit to develop. After dinner, it’s so easy to sit all evening and go to sleep.

GOING FOR A WALK AFTER DINNER, OR ANY MEAL, CAN:

  • Burn calories
  • Help digest food eaten
  • Improve blood sugar levels

Researchers have found that walking, for 15-20 minutes shortly after each meal improved daily blood sugar levels more than a single 45-minute walk in the morning.

IDEAS TO INCORPORATE A 15-MINUTE WALK AFTER EACH MEAL ARE:

  • A walk around the block. If you have a dog, they will love the extra outing.
  • Do a lap around your workplace after lunch.
  • If dining out, take a stroll to window shop.

It’s normal to feel sleepy after a meal, but you’ll actually feel better if you fight the urge to nap and walk instead.
