Walking is good medicine: it improves cerebral blood flow and lowers the risk of vascular disease that may help you avoid dementia later in life.*
Isn’t that great news? Remember the story of the man who had a blood clot in his leg? The doctor told him he could walk daily or have an operation. The man started a daily walking regimen. When the man returned to his doctor for a check up, he was pleasantly surprised when he found out that his body constructed a new blood vessel that bypasses the clot.
How wonderful is it that we are made to heal when proper decisions are made?
So, what is stopping you from doing your personal regimen?
I will joyfully continue doing my exercise walking program so I am able to remain in the best health possible.
Since walking improves blood flow to the brain as well, why not have walking brain storming meetings? Do you ever feel stumped with only a huge road block in front and no detours in sight? This may be the time to go for a walk which will most likely recharge you enough to get your creative juices flowing.
For those of you who enjoy snow free walking paths, we have been lucky here in southeastern Pennsylvania this winter. Even the temperatures have been moderate, as per winter standards.
But, please, while you are out and about, still be careful and remember to keep your ice treads handy, as cold temperatures will be returning. Realistically, we are still in winter season, although, not much longer. The winter wonderland can sure be beautiful. 🙂
Best of health to you and good bye.
