  • Make walking fun by going to places you enjoy.
  • Walk with someone else to enjoy a chat, or listen to your favorite music, but also listen to the sounds around you.
  • Keep safety in mind as you plan when and where to walk.
  • Carry a phone and ID with you.
  • Inform someone about your walking time and route.
  • If it’s dark outside when you go for a walk, wear a reflective vest or brightly colored clothing.
  • Always be aware of your surroundings.
