“If you want to improve your health and reduce the risk of disease and other health issues, walking is the best and easiest wonder drug to keep away the aging factor, as we get older.  Beyond the health benefits, walking is free and has no negative side effects.”

A study from the Life Science Division, Berkeley, California, has shown that walking (briskly) can lower the risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes, which are risk factors for other debilitating diseases like heart issues and a possible stroke.  Walking maintains healthy weight, strong bones, improves balance and improves mood.  Fortunately you do not need to “run” for these type of health benefits.  You can forget the “No Pain, No Gain” quotation regarding exercise.  Study’s show that walking for two or three hours a week can reduce the risk heart disease, cancer, obesity and many other potential health issues.  Getting outdoors and walking not only brings many benefits to your life , but it could very well extend your life and it is fun.  I started walking about a mile several mornings each week and the benefits have been amazing.  My walks have become an important part of my healthy living.  “Sholly Sez!”
