If you want to shake up your walks, after a mile or two, turn around and walk backwards. Make sure you're on level ground and no breaks in pavement or obstacles before you turn. I find that I use different muscles and breaks up the walk.
Also, I take a change of socks on really long walks. It refreshes my feet to have clean socks half way through the day.
I walk for 25 minutes every weekday with my daycare kids in our school gym. Not only do I get my walk in but they are also getting exercise. I make it fun by changing out to skipping, running, hopping, walking backwards, etc. Sometimes they 'chase' me or I 'chase' them.They giggle all the way and don't even realize they are exercising!
We have three print stations in our office. I changed my computer setting to print from the machine furthest from my cubicle - and early in the day, before most other people arrive, I skip, hop, jog or walk backwards to and from the print station. Every little it helps - and this just wakes me up during my shift. ♥
