Walk it out.
Need a little exercise but don't know where to start?  Grab your sneakers and go for a walk!  Whether you walk alone, with your children, with friends, with co-workers, or are training for a Walk-A-Thon, just walk!  Walking can reduce the risk of many diseases — from heart attack and stroke to hip fracture and glaucoma. Check with your doctor first, of course, and then use these tips to keep you on track:
  • During your walks, you should be able to maintain a conversation. If you're breathing too lightly, increase your pace. If you can't catch your breath, slow it down.
  • Walk around the local area after lunch or dedicate 15 minutes to walking up and down stairs. Climbing is an excellent way to strengthen your heart.
  • At night, trade a half hour of TV for a brisk stroll around the block. Take a friend with you for company or get the whole family involved.
So go ahead and make like a Nike commercial, and Just Do It.
