One of my goals for this year is to improve my physical fitness. I’m guessing, that a number of readers are saying “yes, me too.”
What have you done to tackle the fitness goal?
No matter what your fitness level is right now, you can start walking. If you can only walk for 10 minutes, that’s fine, start at that point. Be realistic and accept that you must start where you are. It’s not so much about where you start from but where you are going.
See an earlier post- January Goals – tips for working on all goals.
You can walk with a friend, walk alone, pray, walk your dog or walk with a camera and catch some nature shots. I could go on and on with activities to add to the walking experience. But, you get the idea…
I already love to walk so choosing walking for fitness is easy for me. But I know it isn’t as appealing to everyone. I think if you take a look and think a little about the effects of walking you might find some interest in becoming a walker.
Walking is good for your
- energy level
- bones, joints, and muscles
- blood pressure
And there are many more benefits you can expect to experience after adding walking to your daily schedule.
NATIONAL WALKING DAY
The first Wednesday in April is National Walking Day. The American Heart Association sponsors this day to remind people about the health benefits of taking a walk.
