Best Time For Walking
Last Updated on July 16, 2020 by Ashwini G

Walking is one of the best forms of exercise in which all parts of your body come into action. But is there any specific time to walk? While walking can help you to stay active, there is a specific time of the day when you tend to benefit the most. Research on body rhythms, temperature levels, and lung function reveals that it is best to exercise around 6 p.m. alongside, exercising in the morning can help you improve your metabolism and ensure that you stay active for the rest of the day. There are several benefits of walking like improved functioning of the heart, promoting weight loss, supplying with energy for the rest of the day, etc. Even if you have a busy daily schedule, a little planning can help you with your daily walking.

Walking in The Morning

If you are an early bird, walking in the morning will be the most suitable for you. Studies show that people indulging in a brisk 45-minutes morning walk show reduced attraction to photos of food and increased activity throughout the day. There are fewer distractions in the morning with cooler temperatures in summer as compared to the later part of the day. Also, the air pollution level is the lowest in the morning, thereby providing fresh air to breathe.

Noon and Break-Time Walking

This is the best time to recharge yourself with a brisk 30-minute walking during the lunch hour. If you have a sedentary job, you can benefit a lot by breaking up the workday with some physical exercise. Since the body temperature levels are higher than in the morning, there is no need for any warmup exercises. Walking can help you to quickly digest the food that you had for lunch and avoid break-time snacking. In addition to that, it also improves blood flow to the brain and provides stress-relief from your busy schedule.

Evening Walking

If your home is walking distance from your office, you may opt for walking after work. Or if your workplace is far from your home, try getting down two stoppages earlier from your commute and walk the rest of the path. Since the muscles are flexible and warm, you will be able to walk your way out faster. A brisk 30 minutes of evening walk can also help you to regulate the amount of food that you want to have for dinner.

So, What Is the Best Time for Walking?

The best time for walking is the time when you feel convenient, and that fits best into your schedule. Experts believe that it is not the time of the day that matters, but the 3Cs that are more important. This includes –

  • Commitment: To build physical stamina, you need to build mental stamina that will give you the strength to carry on.
  • Consistency: It is all about developing regular habits and building a long-term routine to get the most out of your walking exercise.
  • Confirmation: This refers to the record of your commitment and consistency. It can help you plan your meals and exercise in advance.
