14 Things Anyone Who Walks A Lot Should Have In Their Life

If you live in a city where the main mode of transportation is walking, or you otherwise spend a lot of time getting around by foot, you know it takes a toll. These 14 items for people who walk everywhere could very well make your day so much easier.

You already know that getting to your destination by foot is entirely different than driving. It's hard on the body in a unique way. It requires you to pack differently, plan your day differently. While walking is excellent exercise, special considerations must be made so that you're adequately prepared for the wear and tear on your body, the weather, any safety issues, and so much more.

We wouldn't want to underestimate the awesomeness of walking, though. NBC News once called it the most underrated form of exercise, pointing to its many mental and physiological benefits. It can help break up a day that you will otherwise spend sitting — and you don't need me to tell you that too much sitting is bad for your health (although if you're curious, you can read more about it here).

Plan accordingly and enjoy the stroll. If walking is your transportation of choice, check out these 14 items.
