Just Take A Walk

The battle for health is now in the arena of lifestyle diseases. These are the maladies that are now robbing us of our energy, disabling us prematurely, and killing us slowly. The good news is that greater vitality, better health and longer life can be ours through regular, brisk physical activity.

Walking is the best exercise, here are some benefits:

  • Makes us feel good, hormones producing the exercise high are health promoting.
  • Exercise strengthens the heart. This is important in a culture in which every second person dies of heart and vascular disease.
  • Lowers LDL cholesterol levels in the blood and often raises HDL cholesterol. (LDL is the bad part of cholesterol; HDL the good part).
  • Excercise strengthens bones by retaining calcium and other minerals.
  • Exercise lifts depression. Outdoor exercise is one of the most valuable tools for fighting this common and disabling malady.
  • Exercise relieves anxiety and stress. In our harried, pressured society, Physical activity is proving to be an effective antidote.
  • Exercise increases our overall effeciency in all areas of our lives.
  • Exercise helps maintain desirable weight levels. It builds muscles and burns fat. Moderate exercise blunts appetite by temporarily increasing blood sugar levels.
  • Exercise improves circulation, and that makes for clearer minds, better sleep, and faster healing of damaged areas.

To be effective, (aerobic) exercise should be brisk and continuous for at lest 15 to 20 minutes. Most people can work up to this goal. A daily program of 30 to 40 minutes of active exercise will give you maximum benefits. To lose weight, and for diabetics needing to control blood sugar, increase the time to one hour. You can divide the hour into two or three sessions if you wish.
