Beth posted a great article about walking and National Walking Day. If you are just starting to exercise, strongly consider walking. You already know how to do it. It doesn’t take any special equipment. You just have to walk out your front door and start. Easy. Start walking and winning your War On Diabetes.  You know, a walk a day just might keep Diabetes away.

Rehabilitate Your Heart

What is National Walking Day?
The American Heart Association has named the first Wednesday of each April, National Walking Day. This day is dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of physical activity.

Invite your family, friends and coworkers to walk with you towards a healthier life!

Why start walking? It’s easy, it works and it pays!

  • Heart disease is this country’s number one killer but by exercising for as little as 30 minutes each day you can reduce your risk.
  • Studies show that for every hour of walking, life expectancy may increase by two hours.
  • Walking is the single most effective form of exercise to achieve heart health

Check out the American Heart Association’s new Walking Paths app to create, find and track walking paths near you! Available for the Android, iPhone and iPad.
