An Walk A Day Keeps The Doctor Away
Last wee I read an article on the BBC news website about how inactivity was effecting more peoples health the obesity and to be very honest this came as no surprise at all to me as I know several people who are statistically overweight but are fitter and healthier the the average Joe. Yes being overweight is a bit issue in the modern world, but not doing any exercise is by far a bigger problem.
These days we have things very easy, most of us have cars and tend to drive everywhere. I believe that this is a very bad thing, yes there are times when a car is essential but by walking or cycling to local places we can significantly improve our health and fitness. Just 20-30 minutes of leisurely exercise a day such as walking can make a massive difference, I'm not suggesting we all start training for marathons, just a little walk around the block. Not only will this stimulate you body and muscles, but also give you a good health dose of fresh air. So next time you need to pop down the road why not walk and leave the car at home, I guarantee you will feel better for doing so.
