課文:

Walking is also good for your wallet. It saves on the cost of going to a gym. Walk briskly for 150 minutes each week to get a good workout. A pedometer can get you started. Begin with trying to take 1,000 steps in 10 minutes to set the right pace.

briskly:輕快地
workout:健身、體能鍛練
work out:(idiom)
pedometer:計步器
pace:步伐、速度

Walking helps your mental health, too. Putting one foot in front of the other isn’t difficult. You don’t have to think about it, so you can concentrate on other things. You can consider problems or think of ideas. You can think over conversations again or just remember funny things that have happened recently.

mental:心理的、腦力的、精神的、智力的
concentrate:集中、聚集、全神貫注
think over:考慮、仔細考慮
recently:最近、近來
recent:(adj)

You can make walking part of your day. Instead of parking right next to your office, park a distance away – and walk. Instead of taking the elevator, walk. You can even have walking meetings. They are what they sound like. But instead of sitting, you walk and talk things over.

Make walking a habit, and see how it makes you feel.

habit:習慣


文法:
begin with trying to … to …
(從試著…開始,以便…)

特別補充:
break habit
:改掉…習慣
walk the talk:言行一致(= practice what you preach)
talk the talk:只說不做、唱高調
talk is cheap:只出一張嘴
