Spring is a great time to get back on that wellness horse, if winter has left you feeling sluggish from lack of exercise. Now is the time! If you are thinking about being more active, a walking program is a tried and true favorite form of physical activity. As an exercise, walking is easy to begin and maintain. Plus, it needs no special skills or expensive equipment, and can be done year-round, outdoors and indoors.
For those who thought they didn’t have time to walk or exercise, there’s good health news. Even a small amount of exercise can help you feel better mentally by reducing feelings of depression and anxiety, and improving cognition.
