Reflecting on how I got here.

Monday, October 09, 2017

I joined SP in 2007. I used to keep a journal of health related stuff...and still occasionally add comments...also go back to reread what I wrote or saved.
Shortly after I joined SP, I copied (typed out from magazine I think) a brief article from somewhere..."Get In Step written by RealAge, Inc., peer-reviewed by Dr. Axel Goetz, November 2004" Seeing articles about what I titled "Reasons I should be Walking Daily" is interesting to reflect on...Everything in this little article still applies today. Ack..did I say LITTLE article...it is 3 pages in my book.

Anyway...I think I will share it here..but in parts..too much to type at once.

" 'Walking saved my life.'
So say many walking enthusiasts who picked up the habit and as a result either reduced their risk of disease, lost weight, beat depression, or enjoyed countless other major health rewards.

Although you may not be surprised to know that walking is considered a superior health habit, it might surprise you to learn just how much research has confirmed the far-reaching and diverse health benefits that regular walkers experience.
Some doctors and scientists even believe that walking regularly can reverse illness and again, making the simple act of walking quite possibly the most underrated prescription for good health.

Read on to discover the long list of health wishes that walking can fulfill for you.' "
Next post tomorrow.

    AMEN! I am a walker. Diagnosed w/hypertension in 2009 -- reversed it. Diagnosed w/type 2 diabetes in 2010 -- reversed it. All thru walking! LOTS of work getting these things reversed, but . . . .walking was my salvation
