Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

Walk to Work Day was April 1 and established in 2004.  It isn’t a national holiday, however, I love the concept.  Living in a rural area, I am unable to walk to work.  Except when I am working in my home office. 

Let’s look for ways we can increase our steps walking each day: 

  • Walk around the block during your breaks at work.  Leave your cell phone behind and enjoy the fresh air, sunshine, and birds & bunnies.  
  • Park your car at the furthest end of the parking lot.  You might avoid door dings and increase your steps
  • If you are indoors, get up every hour and walk to the restroom, kitchen, garage just to move your hips, knees and ankles.

Health Benefits of Walking: 

  • Boost immune system – A study of 1000 men and women found that walking 20 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week had 43% fewer sick days than those who exercised 1 day a week or less
  • Improve blood circulation
  • Increase creativity
  • Ease joint pain – studies show that walking reduces arthritis related pain by lubricating the joints and strengthening the muscles
  • Lighten moods by releasing endorphins during exercise
  • Release the weight!  Weight fluctuations can feel like taking two steps forward and one step back.  Walk more, feel better, and drop the weight.
