Small Step—Big Bang in Return

Sharon Rekieta, Fitness Director - 6th January 2014

Perhaps it is difficult to imagine or even believe that making a seemingly small healthy behavior change such as walking could have much of an impact on your life. 

Consider the possibilities: if tomorrow you resolved to walk 30-minutes a day, these are the changes you could expect by the first day of spring.

A loss of five pounds
Enhanced cardiovascular health and a reduced risk of heart disease Increase in physical conditioning—which means doing more with less effort A brainpower boost leading to better concentration and easier decision-making Greater restorative benefits from sleeping Improved mood and outlook on life Lowered risk of degenerative diseases and cancer Money in the bank saved by not buying medicine or paying for doctor’s visits

So lace up and get walking.  Taking this “step” towards better health is well worth the effort.
