Tips for effective walking

Walk with short steps. Long steps helps you walk faster but tires you out sooner. Don't walk flat footed. Walk with the heel touching the ground first and then your toes.  Roll your feet forward and push off with your toes. Keep the body straight particularly your back. Pull your abdomen in and tighten your glutes. Keep your arms relaxed and flexed at the elbow. Swing the arms as you walk along. Walk along paths that have natural dips and ups. This way you work harder on the upward slope and relax when you walk down the slope. This gives your heart a natural workout.
