Hi friend, I read article that said walk for 30 minutes or thousand steps a day can keep away Osteoporosis / porous bone. How long / far you walk a day ?

Hi there! I have not measured how many minutes I walk in a day. However, I walk for considerable period of time and I think that is enough for me to keep away Osteoporosis.

It depends on how I'm feeling. Some days I will only walk for 30 minutes but there are days when I am so full of energy so I walk for 2 1/2 hours. I walk up a mountain through a neighborhood with big houses so time flies because I get busy looking at houses and yards. I didn't know that walking could help keep Osteoporoisis at bay! yay! That's good to know!

Hi Dugsmom, walk routine everyday helps prevent osteoporosis, but we must concern with my lifestyle too. Smoking is one of many point that caused osteoporosis

I used to walk to the LRT station (train) from my house. I climb up and down the staircase at home. All in, easily 30-40 minutes a day. When I travel on my own, I normally prefer to walk, take time to see surroundings. Weekend : I love window shopping and most of Kuala Lumpur shopping centres are huge... good for exercise. But lately since I spend most of my time watching television, blogging and MyLotting, it seems I lack of walking. I think I must start brisk walking in the evening while waiting at my son school. Thanks for bringing up this important Question, it reminds me of exercising.

well i need to get one of those counter that says how many steps do you take a day. well since its summer i take about 500 steps a day or way more i don't know i'm on the computer all day on mylot or on some other making website. then i cook so that takes steps and i go to the rest room and take a shower. that should be about 500 steps then i decided not to go to the park today with my mom. because i want to make some money. but i'll run in the next week hopefully.

I am up and down stairs a lot during the day for my work, and I try to walk at least 40 minutes a day extra for good health.

well i work 3 days a week and walk to the transit stop and home again and am busy at work. on my days off, i am uwually running up and down the stairs at home and sometimes go out for a walk (depending on the weather). i also do stretches at home so i think i get a fair amount of exercise.

Just recently, I've proven to myself that walking actually is very healthy and has many benefits to our body. I've been doing brisk walking alternating with some jogging for two weeks now, and it already lose me about 5 pounds of body weight. It sure proved to me that taking for a walk/jog every morning before going to work had done me positive results and helped me build lessen my self-anxiety because of obesity. Usually I jog around the stretch of our neighborhood for 1-2 kilometers, getting back and forth from our house to the subdivision's gates and back again, for about 3 times. After that exercise, I'll feel immediately exhausted and very thirsty but if you think of it in the long run and the benefits I'll have for my health, it more than pays off.
