In the world of physical activity and exercise, how far will walking take you?
This quote by Ellen DeGeneres, all kidding aside, implies people who walk daily will reap a host of health benefits.
Sources agree that walking boosts memory and battles obesity. In addition, walking helps address other health concerns like diabetes, high blood pressure and cancer. Other physical benefits include toning the rear and legs, as well as enhancing balance.
Two bloggers share their own ideas and benefits of walking.
Donna of Retirement Reflections, recently shared Building Walking into Your Lifestyle as a guest post on Sizzling Toward Sixty.
Tony, long-time blogger at One Regular Guy Writing about Food, Exercise and Living Past 100, shares a wealth of information on his page Why You Should Walk More.
Some benefits I have experienced is how walking de-stresses me and elevates my mood. Often times, walking simply helps me solve a problem or think of a great blog post!
