I’m Walkin’ 🚶🚶♀️🚶♂️
For most of us, there is really no better way to keep fit!
Every time we strap on our walking shoes, Fats Domino’s classic tune starts playing in our heads. And it occurs to us, if Fats had heeded the advice in his song title, he may have had to change his name.
With cooler weather finally here, we see more and more of our neighbors outdoors, taking advantage of the cooler temperatures to get in a little fresh-air exercise Walking is one of the best ways for most of us to get our American Heart Association-recommended daily dose of exercise. It’s not only an affordable, low-impact activity, it will also build strength, improve cardiovascular function, and lessen your risks for a number of serious health conditions.
According to the American Heart Association, a consistent walking for wellness program will lead to :
- improved cardiovascular system and breathing function
- reduced risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes
- improved management of conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes
- improved joint pain, arthritis pain and muscular pain or stiffness,
- stronger bones and improved balance
- increased muscle strength and endurance
- reduced body fat
All it takes is 30 minutes each day to reap all these fantastic rewards for your health – but any walking is better than none! So consider parking a little further from the entrance when you shop, or taking a quick walk around the block the next time you get your mail, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. And try to get out in the evening for a post-dinner stroll – the benefits of meeting and greeting your neighbors cannot be overestimated! It all adds up to a healthier you!
