In order to stay younger longer, we need to move daily.  One if the best and easiest ways to
move is to walk.  The following are some of the best reasons to walk everyday.

  1. Lose Weight:   With about 70% of the human population being over weight, losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight is a great reason for walking.  Most experts feel that we should walk for about 30 minutes each day.   The Step Diet focuses on gradually adding more steps daily until you reach 10.000 steps daily.  
  2. Strengthen Your Bones:  Walking just 30 minutes daily will reduce your risk of bone fractures by 40% and can stop loss of bone mass due to osteoporosis.
  3. Lower your risk of diabetes:   Everyday Health, says that “Brisk walking can help prevent and manage diabetes.”  Tami Ross, who is an American Association of Diabetes Educators expert, says, “A 20- to 30-minute walk can help lower blood sugar for 24 hours.”
  4. Reduce your risk of Alzheimer's by a whopping 50%:  Walking is great for your overall health as well as your mind and mental health.  The University of Virginia conducted a study that found that men between 71 and 93 who walked more than a quarter of a mile per day had half the incidence of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.” walk
  5. Improve your emotional health:  Walking can enhance your mood, lower stress, and ease depression.  Walking is a natural way to calm yourself and helps your body regain a state of balance and relaxation.
  6. Improves your energy:  Walking or exercise helps us to be more energized and to feel more motivated to do more.
  7. Heart health:  A recent study confirmed that walking 10,000 steps daily improved cardio vascular health and lowered blood pressure.  
  8. Lower cancer risk:  Walking has been found to lower the risk of  colorectal cancer and breast cancer.  Walking is thought to help with better digestion which prevents build up of semi digested foods and fecal matter.
  9. Better skin:  If you want to look (and feel) younger, try walking.  Walking actually rejuvenates your skin by providing it with more oxygen, better circulation, and nutrients.  Walking will help your  production of collagen. Collagen is a protein that helps with the firmness, suppleness, and renewal of skin cells.
  10. Helps your arteries stay unclogged   An American College of Cardiology study showed that exercise before a meal may help stop the effects of high-fat foods on blood vessel function.  Unclogged arteries mean that your organs and all parts of your body get better blood flow.  This helps your body function at its best.
