The benefits of walking are many: it helps you lower your bad cholesterol (LDL), increase your good cholesterol (HDL), lower your blood pressure, reduce your risk of or manage type 2 diabetes, manage your weight and more. Research shows that regular, brisk walking can reduce the risk of heart attack by the same amount as more vigorous exercise, such as jogging. Walking is safe, simple and doesn’t require practice. Did we mention fun?
Wellness Coordinator Donna Schuler shares her favorite walks and photos.
1/11/12 – My walk was 3 miles and took 49 minutes. According my nifty iPhone app, Runkeeper, I burned up 267 calories!
2/1/12 – One of my favorite walks is Glass Beach. Today it was misty, the winds blowing, and beaches washed clean from the high surf and rain.
