Have You Taken A Walk Today?

April 10, 2016

Walking is just plain good for the body! Many studies agree that even a modest amount of light exercise every day is enough to promote healthy hearts and lungs! There are many benefits to walking. Here are a few:

 

- Walking can help keep your muscles toned. It feels good to have some endurance to last 

the day. Drink plenty of water, stretch a little before and after, and you’ll feel like new 

after a nice walk, especially when the weather is nice!

 

- Walking may help keep your lungs healthy and strong. 

 

- Cardiovascular exercise helps keep veins and arteries healthy and keep the blood 

flowing throughout the body, meaning life-giving oxygen reaches all parts of the body.

 

- Getting your body to move helps elevate your mood. Maintain positive mindset, healthy 

perspective, and avoid the emotional dumps by taking a nice walk. The fresh air, 

exercise, scenery, or the chance to make a new friend or acquaintance along the way all 

help contribute to maintaining a good mood.

 

Consult your physician before starting an exercise routine.
