It is true that people who have a walk on a regular basis do not suffer from stress and health risks, but the number of pedestrians is decreasing nowadays. There could be some solutions why this is the case, and I believe there are some solutions that the governments and individuals could take to protect their health.
There are several contributing factors why people are less interested in walking and going jogging. Not having enough time is an issue that people face nowadays, especially with individuals who have hectic schedule, so they could not spend time walking to improve their health. Secondly, if they finish their work, they will watch television or go to the restaurant for entertainment instead of walking in the park. Thirdly, children only pay their attention on computer games and spend hours playing them, because they believe that this is an interesting way for relaxation. For example, my cousin neither goes to the park to go jogging nor playing games with his friends, since he watses time on enjoying video games.
In my view, there are several ways that the governments and individuals could take to improve their health and have time to go jogging. The local authorities should encourage people to join team sports to improve their health. Another solution that could be taken by individuals is that parents should walk with their children and reduce the amount of time they waste on computer games. Also, they should spend approximately 30 miniutes in the morning to do plenty of exercises and walk in order to boost blood circulation. Besides, the governments should organize a walking competition to attract people and encourage them to do gentle exercise including walking.
In conclusion, there are various measures can be taken to solve the problems described above amd improve the health of people by walking to reduce risks of suffering from serious diseases.
