Sometime in the last 6 months I started walking.  I knew I had it in the deep recesses of my DNA as my dad always walked 2x per day.  There are multiple “loops” around our house that I enjoy, I love bringing Bogey our dog, and I always have my phone and return phone calls while walking or listen to music.

Walking is a low-impact exercise, easy on your body, and can help get you to a place you want to be with health.  Many times when people want to meet with me I say,  “Sure, bring your walking shoes!”

10 Reasons to walk:

  • Lowers Bad Cholesterol
  • Raises Good Cholesterol
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Reduces risk of type 2 Diabetes
  • Manages your weight
  • Improves your mood
  • Helps you stay strong and fit
  • Gets you out with your dog
  • Gives you a “presence” in your neighborhood
  • Two things at once:  walk and either return calls or listen to online sermons

The two main reasons I walk:  trim my waistline and improve my health.  It motivates me to get out there, do something, on a daily basis.

Have a great Friday,
