The thing about walking is that it doesn’t seem like exercise. Does it? That is why I love it. I get to be outdoors with nature, enjoying the weather, taking in the scenery and watching all the creatures scurry about their day.

Why Walking Daily is Good
- Maintain or lose body weight, plus keeps your muscles toned.
- Enhance mental well being and emotions.
- Decreases stress and helps you to sleep better.
- Improves blood pressure and sugar levels.
- It really does give you more energy and keeps you happy!
- Reduce the risk of heart disease – this is one that means a lot to me.
My father had open heart surgery when I was an eighth grade. He was 42 years old. Its a heredity thing – his father had issues too. I am 42 years old in just 3 short years. Scary.
It‚Äôs never too late to start thinking and adopting healthy habits in our everyday lives!
Along with a daily walk, it is also important to take your vitamins regularly. A good rule of thumb is to take them at the same time each day – like at breakfast – so that it does become a habit.
Right now I am using Nature Made’s Multi Complete and Fish Oil, which I purchased at Walmart for a great everyday price. Fish Oil is good for heart health because it contains omega 3 fatty acids.¬†Nature Made’s fish oil supply comes from deep ocean waters,¬†not farm¬†raised fish. State¬†of the¬†art purification processes¬†removes mercury to ensure purity. No color added, no artificial flavors or preservatives.
