My suggestion would to be do as much time as you can manage! If you start out with say 10 minutes walking, that's a great starting place! Over time, you can increase the challenge by walking faster, increasing the incline or going for a longer duration. Start where you can and work your way up to increase the challenge. If you're walking or doing something similar that's lower in intensity, I would say that over time you should aim for 60 minutes. If you're doing something more vigorous like running, I would aim for 30 minutes over time. Just do what you can! Aim to do more than you're doing now and you'll make progress

Here's a tip: run at your own pace. you can start by running 20 mins per day on a slow pace then day after of you can manage your strength while running increase it. Also, keep on eye on our diet

need new treadmills?

Start slowly, walk 10 minutes at a time. Try to walk 10 min. take a short break, then walk another 10 min... I know when I walk on a treadmill watching TV or listening to music seems to make the time go faster.

I tell myself I will walk until this song is over or listen to 2 more songs then stop…this helps me walk for a longer period of time.

Hope this helps.
