Shop 'Til You Drop the Pounds
Window shop. Don't spend...expend. Hit the mall in the name of better health. When inclement weather sidetracks your normal walk, take to the nearest mall and make great strides. Peek in the windows as you pass by your favorite stores...over and over. Walk through the mall and take in the sights. In addition to a change in scenery, the mall is also a safe place when you're taking a solo stroll. There's no traffic to worry about, security is plentiful, restrooms are available and weather isn't an issue. A great perk for mall walkers obviously includes scoping out sales and getting the inside track - no pun intended - on what's going on at the mall. But did you know that many malls actually have walking clubs? When you join, you can get sweet mall perks, like merchant discounts, health checkups and mileage rewards.
