Concerned about the health risks associated with a sedentary lifestyle in middle age, doctors strongly advise picking up the pace during your walks.

Officials from Public Health England highlight a typical decline in physical activity after the age of 40. They recommend that individuals aged between 40 and 60 should incorporate brisk walking into their routine regularly.

The effectiveness of brisk walking is remarkable: just 10 minutes of brisk walking each day can reduce the risk of premature death by 15%. Surprisingly, approximately 40% of individuals in this age group fail to achieve even this modest goal on a monthly basis.

Dr. Harris, the head of medical affairs at the organization, states, "I have firsthand evidence that exercise tends to take a back seat in people's daily schedules as they age."

She adds, "However, choosing to walk to nearby stores instead of driving or taking a brisk 10-minute walk during lunch each day can significantly add years to your life."

General practitioners across the UK also recommend brisk walking, suggesting a pace of at least three miles per hour to elevate heart rate and breathing.

Dr. Williams from the Royal College of General Practitioners emphasizes, "Everyone should reap the benefits of brisk walking."

"Public Health England" underscores the importance of brisk walking for middle-aged individuals, given the decreasing inclination toward physical activity in this age group.

Experts recommend engaging in 150 minutes of exercise per week. However, less than half of individuals aged 40 to 60 meet this requirement, with 1 in 5 not exceeding half an hour of physical activity per week.

While 10 minutes of brisk walking daily may not meet the standard, it effectively helps combat various health issues such as hypertension, diabetes, weight management, depression, anxiety, and even common discomforts like back pain.

Experts further stress that setting an example for household children is another crucial reason for brisk walking during this age.
