Question:

Should I start a daily walking regimen?

Places to Walk

By Francisco G

Staying at a healthy weight is often difficult for busy people, but any doctor will tell you that it must remain a top priority. Fitting a fifteen-minute walk into our daily schedule is something anyone can do. Whenever possible, walk in the early morning or late evening and wear sunblock lotion. Minimizing sun exposure will keep skin healthy and youthful. If it's only possible to do a walk during the lunch hour, try to wear a hat or cap.

The increase in oxygen intake during walking will give your brain a boost, increasing alertness and concentration. Walking in the great outdoors will brighten anyone's mood, so any sadness and depression will fade away.
