Getting Back into Shape by Walking

We all know that we should be active to stay healthy. But what happens when we can’t remember the last time we walked or played tennis or did any sort of exercise? We tend to decide that our active days are over and just sit immobile most of every day. But with a doctor’s permission you too can become active again. The mayo clinic has a twelve week walking program for those who are out of shape. It begins slowly and works up to about 35 minutes of walking five times a week. Here are other sites and articles about getting a start on walking your way to health: To avoid walking mistakes be sure to follow the guidelines in this article. For some it’s more fun to walk with a group, such as the Live Well, Live Long group in New Jersey. Studies are showing that walking can improve memory in seniors and can also increase brain size.

No excuses, get going today and you’ll enjoy your walk to a healthier you.
