Nearing the middle of the fall season, I can’t help but consider how important it is to a consistent healthy exercise program that will carry me into the winter months. Living out in the country has provided my wife and I with many miles of beautiful roads that are safe and offer a variety of things to view. Walking is one of the easiest important exercises one can do to maintain a slimmer waistline and improve your cardio fitness.
The benefits of walking may seem obvious, but by many are overlooked. Perhaps it is due to the lack of contact or extreme effort required during the exercise. Whatever the case may be, walking improves individuals coordination and balance, can help maintain or reduce weight levels, lower the risk of diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure. As for my wife and I, it provides a connection with each other for a small amount of time that is worth more than you can imagine.
If you are looking for a positive means to get back into shape, consider taking advantage of where you live. Hopefully you will find the benefits listed above and many more. – G
