12 Benefits of Walking;

1.) Walking improves circulations. It wards off heart disease, brings up the heart rate, lowers blood pressure and strengthens the heart.

2.) Walking shores up your bones. It can stop the loss of bone mass for those with osteoporosis.

3.) Walking leads to a longer life. Those who exercise regularly in their 50’s and 60’s are 3.5 % less likely to die over the next 8 years than their non-walking counterparts.

4.) Walking lightens mood. It releases natural painkilling endorphins to the body.

5.) Walking can lead to weight loss. A brisk 30 minute walk burns 200 calories. Over time, calories burned can lead to pounds dropped.

6.) Walking strengthens muscles. It tones your leg and abdominal muscles and even arm muscles if you pump them as you walk.

7.) Walking improves sleep. A study in Seattle found that women, ages 50-75, who took one hour morning walks, were more likely to relieve insomnia than women who didn’t walk.

8.) Walking supports your joints. Impact that comes from movement or compression, such as walking “squishes” the cartilage, bringing oxygen and nutrients into the area.

9.) Walking improves your breath. When walking, your breathing rate increases, causing oxygen to travel faster through bloodstream, helping to eliminate waste products and improve your energy level and the ability to heal.

10.) Walking slows mental decline. A study of 6,000 women ages 65 and older found that age related memory decline was lower in those who walked more.

11.) Walking lowers Alzheimer’s risk. A study of men between the ages of 71 and 93 who walked more than a quarter mile per day had half the incidence of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, compared to those who walked less.

12.) Walking helps you do more, longer. Aerobic walking and resistance exercise programs may reduce the incidence of disability in the activities of daily living. Courtesy of the Arthritis Foundation


With summer comes camping trips/vacations that usually involve eating more refined foods that are deficient in the very vitamins, minerals and enzymes that your body needs to handle the new activities you may not have done since last summer. So don’t forget to include all types of raw vegetables along with lean protein. Make sure you are taking your food supplements when not eating the best. Last but not least don’t forget to drink your water along with those other beverages that are consumed on vacation. Have fun but stay healthy this summer!!!
