Others enjoy walking with friends, and say that the knowledge someone else is waiting is what helps them get out the front door every morning to get that all important aerobic fitness in. If you like to walk but lack the motivation to get out there and walk every day, try wearing a pedometer that counts your steps every day. It's fun to find out how many steps you take in a typical day, and then it's even more fun to see if you can add just a few steps a day, then a few steps more, and more, until you are walking almost everywhere you go.
