WALK YOUR WAY TO GOOD HEALTH!
Did you know . . .?
Walking sideways burns 78% more calories than walking forward. Changing your motions makes your body work in different ways.
If you take an average of 10,000 steps each day, you’ll walk 3.5 trips around the earth in your lifetime!
Your walking shoes should be replaced about every 500 miles . . . so if you walk 10,000 steps a day, the equivalent of 5 miles, you should be buying at least three (3) pairs of good walking shoes a year!
Ever wonder how fast you’re walking? To get a close estimate, count the number of steps you take in one minute and divide by 30. For example, if you take 120 steps in a minute, you’d be walking about 4 mph!
Walking also . . .
- Gives you more energy and make you feel good.
- Reduces stress and helps you relax.
- Tones your muscles.
- Increases the number of calories your body uses.
- Strengthens your bones and muscles.
- Improves your stamina and your fitness level.
- Lowers your risk of chronic diseases, such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
- Gives you an opportunity to socialize actively with friends and family.
On April 1st, the American Heart Association is hosting NATIONAL START WALKING DAY, a health initiative challenging all Americans to get up and move more!
