The Wonderful Benefits of Walking [Infographic]
Get Up..Get Moving and You’ll Live Longer!
Those words just cannot be stressed enough. We don’t know one Doctor, Health Care Provider, Psychiatrist, Orthopedist, Homeopath, Oncologist, Obstetrician or even Dentist that will refute the benefits of what a dose of daily exercise can do for your overall wellness.
Find a friend to help keep you motivated and get out and enjoy the great outdoors!
As our bodies age, each one of us needs to stay as active as our level of wellness allows. Check out this visual [Infographic] to see all of the perks that come with Walking.
- Seniors who walk up to 6 Miles per week are much less likely to suffer many forms of mental decline
- Walking 1 minute can extend your Life by 1.5- 2 minutes
- Walking 30 min. per day, 5 days per week halves your risk of heart disease, reduces stress and cholesterol levels and blood pressure
Remember–No Matter How Slow You Go..You’re Still Lapping Everyone on the Couch!
