Striding Forward

When you go out for your daily walk, concentrate on good posture as much as your stride. Hold your head up, keeping your chin parallel with the ground. Try not to lead with your head, which can strain your neck. You don't have to literally pound the pavement when you walk. In fact, walking with a light tread is easier on your feet and legs.
