Walking is good for you, but it is important to walk properly. If you do that you use both the muscles in you legs as those in your abdomen. The feet should be parallel, about 5-10 centimetres apart. keep the weight of your body over the foot valve. The hip joint should move smoothly, but not the hips! Make sure you upper body is held upright, don't lean forward. Keep your shoulders back, but neither keep the stiff nor swivel them around. The head should be held upright and look forward, not in at the ground.
A walk, not a stroll in the city in fashionable clothes, should be taken in the countryside or in parks so you can walk unhindered by cars and people. Wear a comfortable walking suit and a short girdle and, most important, the proper shoes. High heels, 7-9 centimetres high, should only be worn for parties and dances. Neither should you walk in a completely flat shoe. Apart from the fact that the female grace suffers from flat shoes, it can also be uncomfortable and cause flat feet. No, for walking it is best to use a sturdy heel, 2,5-4 centimetres high. The very low heel, or completely flat shoe, should only be worn for the sports like tennis, golf and sailing. The only other occasion is when you wear trousers or shorts, but in such masculine clothes, the female grace isn't the most important thing.
A walk is always good for the body and mind, but is you also want to keep your figure in trim, then make sure you walk for an hour every day and during that walk cover 6 kilometres. If you do that you will loose weight with about 1 kilo every month.
