I know that I want to live to be 100. I want to see my kids/grandkids get married. I have a bucket list that I have not even had a chance to start yet and I keep adding to, but many people ask how do we achieve this. It is easy.
Researchers who studied people who live the longest, healthiest lives found that nearly all shared the some health habits. This included walking. The average person lived 10 years longer, when they walked everyday.
Most people say that they do not have me but if you walk 10 minutes briskly, this is me enough to provide benefits. These benefits include, lower risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes, as much as running can. It is a perfect low impact form of aerobic fitness for all ages. Walking daily reduces the danger of developing certain types of cancers, type 2 diabetes and osteoporosis, all conditions that are contributed to ageing.
So go out for a walk through the forest and enjoy the birds singing and the other wildlife that you may see. You can incorporate walking into your day by walking the kids to school, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, in the office walking over to talk to a colleague instead of texting or emailing, at work start a walking club at lunchtime, walking with a friend regularly after work and get up and just walk whenever you can.
