2. Increase Your Walking  

Believe it or not, you don’t need to spend hours at the gym to improve your fitness. Walking is a great way to support your physical and mental health. A 60-minute uphill walk burns an average of 456 calories,(1) so it’s definitely worth adding it into your daily routine when you can. Walking can also ease joint pain by strengthening and lubricating the muscles that support our joints. It’s especially helpful for our hips and knees.2 

To maintain the health of your joints further, try Myvitamins Joint Effort Tablets. They contain vitamin C, which supports the function of cartilage in our joints and around our bones.3

HIIT workouts, or High-Intensity Interval Training, can help you to burn more calories in less time, meaning they’re perfect for slotting into a busy schedule. Additionally, studies show high intensity workouts can reduce blood pressure levels in overweight or obese individuals through improving cardiovascular fitness.4
