The New Year provides countless latest and greatest ways to get you into shape. There’s a huge fitness industry out there that trusts that our desire for a quick fix will lead us to make a buying decision. I say, “Fuhgeddaboudit!” Instead, WALK. It’s free, it can be done anytime, and the Mayo Clinic says you will realize benefits like these from it:
Lowers low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (the "bad" cholesterol)
Raises high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (the "good" cholesterol)
Lowers your blood pressure
Reduces your risk of, or helps manage, type 2 diabetes
Helps manage your weight
Improves your mood
Helps you stay strong and fit
Walk Into a Healthy Future!
