Our lifestyle is changing day by day. We feel like we do not have time to walk and everything has to be done fast.

Our grandparents used to walk a lot. I heard they walked in a long distance. They lived a healthy life. Now we do not have to walk that much. Our physical activity decreases. Unfortunately, we do not pay attention to it until we face some health issues.
