Staturday – Benefits of Walking

One of the easiest ways to live a healthier life – walk more. That fact will not change no matter what year it is or what year you are.

Stat: Only 30% of people ages 45 to 64 say they engage in regular leisure-time physical activity, and that drops to 25% for those 65 to 74, according to the National Institute on Aging [Source].

Walking not only trims off the pounds, it reduces risks of cancer by 50%. It also cuts the odds of heart disease, and it lowers the chances of developing type 2 diabetes by 60%. If that isn’t good enough for you, it makes you look better and increases your chances someone will want to be intimate with you [no source needed].

So encourage your friends and family to get walking, and not just for recreation. Make it your new method of transportation! Encourage your city officials to improve sidewalks, curbs, and other means to make your cities more livable so you can be healthier!
