Common Walking Missteps

You sometimes forget to take a walk.

"Make walking a healthy obsession," says Dan Kirschenbaum, PhD, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago. "There are certain patterns and habits we've ingrained into our lives -- for instance, if we don't brush our teeth, we don't feel ready to go to bed." If you start walking regularly, you won't feel satisfied until you've completed your route each day.
