Walking Is Such Fun

Try your best to fit brisk walking into your schedule. It’s such fun, and it’s so exhilarating, and it’s also very enjoyable. It will lift your spirit, and it will fill you with vitality. Brisk walking, like swimming, running and cycling, is an aerobic exercise. It’s the most acceptable exercise for many people, because it’s the least strenuous and the safest aerobic activity. Walking is a natural form of movement, and it can prevent osteoporosis. It will speed up your metabolism, and it will help your immune system, and it increases blood flow to the brain, keeping you mentally sharp and alert. It lowers blood pressure, and it’s a great anti-depressant. It’s very refreshing, because when you walk, you breathe in the fresh air, and when the weather is pleasant, you feel the sun’s rays, and it will most definitely put a smile on your face. Once you start walking, you may find it so satisfying that you become a dedicated walker.

Walking Will Speed Up Your Metabolism

Walking Is So Easy

If you walk briskly, then the efficiency of your cardio-respiratory system improves, by stimulating your heart and your lungs, but at a more gradual rate than most other forms of exercise. Chances of a heart attack may be lessened, because brisk walking may actually open up narrowed areas in the coronary blood vessels. The elasticity of the blood vessels may also be increased by brisk walking, lessening the chance that they will rupture under pressure, which is one cause of strokes.

All you need is comfortable, informal clothing, and a pair of takkies, or any shoes that are comfortable enough to walk in. Walking is so easy. Just put one foot in front of the other foot, and keep at it. You may want to walk with your friend, or with your dog, or with one of your family members.

Sometimes life can be very demanding and stressful, and a nice brisk walk may be just what you need to unwind. You will experience such wonderful inner peace, and you will be able to cope better with whatever may come your way.

Walking Will Help You To Get Fit

Breathe Deeply As You Walk

Making exercise a priority in your life is a very good idea. Don’t do too much too soon. Start gradually, and give your body a chance to adjust. Walking is an exercise that can be done almost anywhere. Breathe deeply as you walk, and try to walk up a few hills, because by exerting yourself you can really transform almost every part of your body. One of the great benefits of brisk walking, is that it will decrease your appetite, and instead of reaching for that very huge hamburger, and a couple of cakes after your brisk walk, you will feel so good that you would much rather prefer a tall glass of water with a dash of lemon juice, a couple of nuts, a few savoury biscuits with cheese, and a small piece of chicken, and some fruit. It will make you feel even more healthy. By exercising on a regular basis, you will start to develop a taste for healthy food.

Walking Will Get You Into Great Shape

It’s a fact that your life-style will affect your longevity, as well as the quality of your later years. So, a brisk walk for 35 to 45 minutes three or more times a week is a very smart way to exercise, because it’s a dynamic and necessary defence against the ravages of ageing and degenerative diseases. Regular brisk walking will get you into great shape. It’s the perfect elixir, and it will greatly enhance the quality of your life. So start walking today, and experience the absolute pleasure, and also start reaping all the many wonderful benefits.

If you get a blister from walking, remember that most blisters heal on their own, and until the blister has healed, avoid walking for a while. Green Tea has anti-inflammatory properties that aid healing, so soaking your blister in green tea is a good idea. After brewing three tea bags in boiling water for 5 to 7 minutes, add a teaspoon of baking soda(because of its antiseptic properties). Then allow the brew to cool, so that you can soak your blister in it. If the blister is in an area that is too difficult to soak, then use gauze to apply the home remedy to the area. You can speed up the process of healing by soaking your blister in warm water, if it hasn’t popped. This will help it to soften up and drain the fluid inside.
