It's Winter: Walk

Saturday, November 26, 2011

You'll burn more calories. Since walking in the snow is tougher than walking on solid ground (you have to lift your feet higher as you step), you'll burn more calories-even if you walk slower than your usual pace.

You'll tone up faster. Your calves & thighs work twice as hard walking in snow and ice (as opposed to on level ground); plus, you're forced to engage your core in order to maintain your balance, so you'll strengthen your abs, too. In fact, many of the muscles used during a flat walk in the snow are the same ones that you would engage on a hilly hike.

You'll beat stress. When you're concentrating so intensely on every step, your mind can't wander - and that can be a good thing for your mental health. When you concentrate on the task at hand during exercise, you will feel more relaxed afterward than if you had listened to music or thought about your day.

Chilling stat: 30 percent of people stop walking outdoors during winter...but you shouldn't!

    I love walking outside but have never tried to do it in the snow. thanks for the info; I think that I will try it this year when we have snow. But as for today, it is unseasonably warm here on Long Island, NY and I am taking advantage of that and heading out to walk before tackling the mall. Enjoy your day emoticon

    You can't miss with walking ANY time of year, but good to know there are even better benefits during the winter! :-)

    I love it when it snows and we have to shovel. I love exercise out of necessity and shovelling snow burns a lot of calories. Walking in the snow is not as much fun unless you have a large backyard that you can walk around in. Walking on the street can be dangerous and the sidewalks are usually shoveled down anyway... hard to find unshoveled walkways where I live. Everyone shovels... liability not to.

    Good blog Judy, I walk in the sand at the beach as often as I can which is a challenge but hard work too. Afraid to walk in the snow afraid I will fall again but I do use my treadmill in the winter. If it's just cold I do walk and love it. Hope this finds you healing well and able to walk again soon. emoticon

Never Give Up

Friday, November 25, 2011

“And what I’ve learned is not to believe in magical leaders any more; that character and compassion are more important than ideology; and that even if it’s absurd to think you can change things, it’s even more absurd to think that it’s foolish and unimportant to try.”
—PETER C. NEWMAN, Canadian journalist
