BUT, walking, now that's the way to do it! I go out my front door and walk around my neighborhood a few times. Sometimes I walk the loop twice just because it feels so good! I look up and see the mountains. In the mornings they are often touched with a pink tinge from the sun rising. The air is actually pink! It's the most beautiful thing to see. Even if I'm freezing, slipping and sliding around, seeing those gorgeous pink mountains puts everything into prospective for me.
Taken from the Unicity Newsletter this week:
"Walking requires little time and no equipment, and research has shown that walking (brisk or power walking) can be beneficial and effective to overall health.
The benefits of exercise vary from burning excess body fat to preventing conditions that are likely to diminish functional capacity, including obesity, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, and osteoporosis. In addition, recent studies have shown that a regular exercise program significantly improves mental capacity.
In fact, walking and other exercise leads to the release of the body’s natural happy drugs—endorphins. Many physicians recommend adding regular walking and exercise as a natural treatment to relieve a bout of depression."So get out and walk! I promise, this will get those endorphins going and you'll feel better than ever!!
