      Keep your shoulders down and back:
      If your shoulders are tensed or hunched forward,, it can strain the muscles and joints in your shoulders, neck and upper back.

      Engage your core muscles:
      As you take each step, focus on tightening and engaging your core muscles by pulling your belly button in towards your spine.

      Step from heel to toe:
      Maintain a steady heel to toe gait. This involves striking the ground with your heel first then rolling through your heel to your toe and pushing out of the step with your toe.
