Avoid wearing Jewelry while walking. Walking is almost safe for all ages.

If you are walking before sunrise or after sunset wear colorful clothing or a jacket that reflects light. If you use headphones, they should be low volume so that you can listen to sounds around you.

We should have 30 minutes of walk daily which is moderate physical exercise. Walk at least 20 minutes a and then run for about 10 minutes and then again walk at a normal pace to bring your breath back to normal.
