Physicians should prescribe walking

One of the components of my memory improvement plan (to be discussed in my upcoming book) is studying while walking. Even without the cognitive component daily walking has important health benefits, described in the video below:

 

 

I walk for an hour every morning, either on my treadmill or outside. I wear a pedometer (more accurate than a fitbit or a smartphone pedometer)  and aim for a total 10,000 steps everyday. A hour of planned walking usually gives me between 6,500 and 7,000 steps, a good start towards the 10,000 goal.
