Q. But what if I don't have 30 minutes?

A. Well, first of all, it needn't be 30 minutes all at once, assures Mark Fenton, editor-at-large of Walking magazine. In fact, three daily walks of ten minutes each if done briskly and with purpose can achieve the same effect as a 30 minute walk. Finding 30 minutes a day may be a lot easier than you think. And, remember, doing something is better than doing nothing at all. Thirty minutes is not some magical threshold below which nothing does any good. Thirty minutes is simply the amount of walking time per day which garners substantial health benefits. Walking even as little as ten minutes a day is better for you than well, just sitting there. What can you achieve in 30 minutes?
