• Walking requires no special clothes or equipment, and it’s free.
  • Make walking fun by going to places you enjoy, like a shopping center or park.
  • Bring along someone to chat with, or listen to some of your favorite music (but keep the volume low enough to hear the sounds around you).
  • Think about safety as you plan when and where to walk.
  • Walk with others when possible, and take a phone and ID with you.
  • Let someone know your walking time and route.
  • If it’s dark outside, wear a reflective vest or brightly colored clothing.
  • And always be aware of your surroundings.
