Walking Certificates- What’s the need?
According to health experts across the world, walking is an excellent exercise to stay fit and which can be done by any individual regardless of his or her age. However, it is also a truth that fewer people are now walking to reach their destinations than earlier.
Imagine! Our parents and grandparents used to walk daily for miles to reach a shop, hospital or school/college but now with all things near our homes, we walk less. Even if we can cover a distance by walking, we prefer to use a vehicle more.
We are now leading a sedentary lifestyle. We all have an easy access to either public transport or have private vehicles. Even reaching the nearest grocery store by walking leisurely is now not preferred. A fast paced lifestyle is also a culprit as to save time many people now even chose an elevator then to walk up the stairs.
Everyone seems in a hurry!
Therefore, if any of your loved ones if has recently started walking and has even participated in a walking competition or has successfully completed a walking challenge, awarding to him or her walking certificate will boost confidence. This will instill a new a new energy to continue walking overcoming all hurdles.
