Walking is Good for You Too!

Subscribe to BriefingI know that in the busy world that we live in, sometimes it’s hard to take time for yourself, but this fall, I challenge you to take that first step, and want you to know it’s okay to walk!

Walking can help you

  • Lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (the "bad" cholesterol)
  • Raise high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (the "good" cholesterol)
  • Lower your blood pressure
  • Reduce your risk of or manage type 2 diabetes
  • Manage your weight
  • Improve your mood
  • Stay strong and fit

As with any exercise program, be sure to increase speed and distance gradually. Wear good, flexible, walking shoes with a low heel, and be sure to stretch your calves and shins after you walk to prevent shin pain, a common problem for new walkers.

Spring is a great time for you and your family to visit some of the local trails and parks.

So get out and enjoy the weather. Your heart will thank you.
