  • Warming up before exercise doesn't just help protect you from injury - it can also enhance your performance.
  • Remember to cool down after heavy activity for a few minutes by walking at a slower pace. Stretch after your walk when it's most effective.
  • A brisk walk is just the thing for reducing stress and giving you a needed burst of energy.
  • Did you know walking increases endorphin production and neuron development, helping to improve your mood?
  • Raising your heart rate with regular cardio exercise gives your mood and energy level a boost and is linked with weight control, stronger bones and muscles, and lower risks of heart disease.
  • Walking strengthens the connection between body and mind but can it also build stronger bones.
  • Walking 30 minutes a day, five days a week can improve overall balance and coordination.
  • Walking strengthens bones so you're better apt to handle a misstep. It even lowers hip fracture risk in women by 55 percent.
  • Studies find that stroke patients who walked on a treadmill improved overall stability and speed well into the first year of recovery.
  • Walking not only engages the lower extremities, core, and back to improve physical control, it also strengthens nerve connections between body and mind that coordinate movement.
  • Build walking into your schedule. Set a timer on your computer or phone as a reminder to walk for a few minutes.
  • Look for opportunities to walk. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Park farther from the entrance.
  • Eat and run (or walk). Set aside the first or last 15 minutes of your lunch hour for a brisk walk.
  • Move during commercials. Use those several minutes to march in place, go up and down the stairs a few times, or dance to a favorite song.
  • As you strive to walk 30 minutes a day, five days a week, take it a step farther - spend less time behind your desk or on the couch and enjoy a healthier life.
  • A daily walk feels great and bestows a wealth of body benefits - but what it does for your brain is nothing short of astonishing.
  • Regular walking triggers positive changes in your brain's function and structure. Even a single walk results in chemical changes within the brain that encourage cell growth and optimize your ability to concentrate, solve problems, and learn.
  • Choose wisely. Good meal options contain protein, a moderate amount of fat and fiber, and foods high in complex carbohydrates, such as whole grain crackers and an ounce of cheese, yogurt with granola and berries, or a small bowl of cereal with milk and a banana.
  • Don't start on an empty stomach. If you walk first thing in the morning, have a light snack such as a piece of fruit.
  • Walking 30 minutes a day, five days a week burns a lot of energy. The right fuel at the right time will keep the spring in your step.
  • Staying committed to a walking routine is vital for your overall health even on days when your motivation is not at its peak.
  • Walking is one of the simplest things you can do to achieve better health.
