Don’t Spend All Day in the Gym [Do THIS Instead]

All too often, when you hear about the health benefits of exercise, the lecture comes from a super-fit, intimidating athlete.

You know the type. A Joe Health Nut who obsessively exercises every waking moment of his life. (Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if they do it in their sleep too.)

Trying to meet such high expectations can feel overwhelming.

But I’m happy to report you DON’T have to reach them.

There’s no need to eat, sleep, and breathe intense exercise to get its benefits.

Try THIS instead…

Slip into a comfy pair of shoes and go for a walk.

It may sound too good to be true. But I assure, you WALKING can deliver the kinds of health benefits any health nut would envy.

Those include better blood sugar control, improved heart and brain health, and EVEN a longer life.

In fact, walking is BETTER than Joe Health Nut’s exercise advice that would have you living your life at the gym. Here’s why…

  • Walking is a low-impact exercise. When you walk instead of doing other high-impact activities like running, your muscles and joints don’t get as tired. This means that people of all ages and fitness levels can do it.
  • It’s convenient. You don’t need any special gear or skills to walk. If you have a comfortable pair of shoes, you’re all set. And a daily walk is an easy exercise to fit into your schedule.
  • You burn fat. Walking at a modest speed, burns about 100 calories per mile, more than people burn when running. It may sound counterintuitive, but walking speed is the perfect pace to burn fat.
  • Walking makes your heart stronger. As a result, your blood pressure will likely drop, too, lowering your risk of heart disease and stroke.
  • It boosts blood flow. Walking makes your heart beat faster, improving overall circulation.
  • Walking can help you manage illnesses. Obesity, unhealthy cholesterol, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and gout can be avoided or managed by walking.
  • It makes you feel good. When you walk, endorphins are released, boosting your mood. It also gets you outside, where you can relax and unplug promoting better mental health.
  • Walking can be social. Walking with a group or joining a walking club is a great way to meet new people. Walking and making friends is good for your mental AND physical health.

Exercise doesn’t have to be strenuous or intimidating to work. Walking is simple, accessible, and VERY effective.

P.S. Walking can SLASH your risk of early death up to 67 percent! Find out PRECISELY how long your strolls need to be to get this incredible life-extending benefit RIGHT HERE. (It’s not NEARLY as much as you might imagine.)
