I am constantly thinking about how to make my health better — by eating well, drinking lots of water, exercising …. the last one is probably the hardest one for me. Because I’m more prone to stick to an activity if I make it a (written) goal, I added #walk20in20 to my #20for2020 list (a huge thanks to Gretchen Rubin for starting this challenge).
Research makes it clear that exercise provides a great boost for our health. It helps fight heart diseases, Type 2 diabetes, obesity, cancer, and other illnesses we are dealing with in the 21st century. Many of us, however, are stuck in a sedentary lifestyle. If that’s you, would you consider joining me for a daily walk? Even 20 minutes a day make a huge difference. You’ll find yourself much happier and energetic.
I know some of you will ask, “Are there really benefits to plain old walking?” Yes! Check out these articles written by people much knowledgeable than I am:
