Walking into Summertime!


As we enter into summer, I encourage you to take the time to focus on health and exercise.  While everyone may not have the time or resources to join a gym or fitness center, there are many activities that can be built into our daily routine. 

Consider the benefits of walking and moderate physical activity*: 

  • Reduced risk of coronary heart disease
  • Improved blood pressure and blood sugar levels
  • Improved blood lipid profile
  • Maintenance of body weight and lowered risk of obesity
  • Enhanced mental well being
  • Reduced risk of osteoporosis
  • Reduced risk of breast and colon cancer
  • Reduced risk of non-insulin dependent (type 2) diabetes
  • Boosts Immune System
  • Creates endorphins

There really are so many benefits for such a simple activity!  There are countless physical activities out there, but walking has the lowest dropout rate of them all! It's the simplest positive change you can make to effectively improve your heart health.

I encourage you to strive for at least 30 minutes of walking or other moderate physical activity.  It really can make a difference.
