Beat Cardiovascular Disease: Walk It Out
01/22/2010 | 12:00 AM
In terms of maintaining a healthy and stable body and mind, sometimes what's simple is best. Walking is an often underestimated as an aerobic activity. Because we do it so unconsciously, we forget how beneficial the simple motion of walking can be - for our hearts, our legs, even our abdomens, shoulders and backs. Walking at a quick, steady pace in an upright posture for about 30 minutes per day improves your heart health and helps to release stress and tension. If you prefer straight cardio or a gym routine to walking, try to make it a point to walk where you might otherwise drive. In good weather, give yourself time to reach your destination on foot - your body and mind will benefit greatly from this small change to your routine.
