Walk to Lose Weight, Get Fitter, And Be Happier

Looking for an easy, no cost, comfortable way to add more activity into your day?

Walk outdoors, at a local mall, indoors on cardio equipment, down the hall from your office — anywhere you can get in some steps. Why? Many baby boomers walk to lose weight. Yet other compelling reasons beckon us to a walking workout. In fact, walking is the number one preferred form of physical activity among adults of all ages.

Why Walk?

It’s easy to get started. No special skills or equipment are required, though we do suggest good walking shoes, especially for women over 50. Anyone else notice more feet issues with each passing mile? Also, walking can stave off many diseases, especially depression just by strolling or striding out. You can be social (walking with friends or family) or contemplative (when walking alone). The risk of injury is low. We also mentioned “FREE,” right?

Benefits Of Walking

Walking as exercise, power walking, dog walking, even moseying can all help you to:

  • Live longer
  • Have a healthier heart
  • Lose weight
  • Uplift your mood
  • Enhance your mental acuity
  • Enjoy more time with friends, pets, family (not necessarily in that order).
