In brief: Yes,walk!

Walking is the easiest way to incorporate more activity into your life (for most people).
Assuming you are otherwise healthy, american college of sports medicine recommends 30 minutes of cardiovascular activity most days of the week. This means walking fast enough do that your heart rate goes up, but slow enough to comfortably talk. Check with your doctor before starting an exercise program.
