The Power of Walking

Looking for an easy way to help meet your New Year’s Resolution?   
May I suggest you add a walk to your schedule?

And trust me on this – walking with a friend or two makes your ‘exercise’ the highlight of the day!

(Thank you Wendy and Peanut for being my FABULOUS “Sole Sisters”)   

Walking requires the integrated use of our arms, legs and torso. Hundreds of calorie-burning muscles are utilized simply by walking. 
Walking briskly on a daily basis not only results in calorie burning, it increases enzyme and metabolic activity that may result in increased calorie consumption for up to 12 hours after walking as little as 2 miles. 
Plus you get to see BEAUTIFUL THINGS!  🙂

One quick note as a supplement to my post about taking a photo a day and storing them on a special calendar on your smart phone. HERE.

If you don’t have a smart phone, want to use a camera rather than your phone, or would like to post your Photo a day via your computer HERE is a website that looks great! And it’s FREE.

And this blog also demonstrates one of MY new year’s resolutions…..

This year, in an effort to reduce my 70 hour work weeks, I’m giving myself permission to post shorter blogs every now and then.

I think they will still bring a smile to your day!

Now that you know that walking can aid in improving all aspects of your well-being, it is time to get moving! Park at the opposite end of the parking lot and walk.   Stop taking elevators and escalators, and start taking the stairs.   If you need more vitality in your life, climbing a few stairs whenever possible will be a big step (literally) in the right direction.  Also, if you ever have the opportunity to go for a walk or a hike in nature, you will be reaping even more benefit from the uneven terrain and chance to breathe fresh air, not to mention the benefits to your Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual well-being.
