Walking is so versatile, it's centering, relaxing and great for emotional and mental health.
Great advice on the importance of exercise and wearing the right footwear. You can really hurt your feet using the wrong shoes, and it increases your risk of injury. I really love this doctor, and am thrilled to see him here in a video! He's really brilliant!
Walking is my favorite! And good supportive shoes are essential!
I simply love to walk!
Great article thanks for sharing
I love walking. I plan to do some today.
movement always bring oxygen to an area and removes toxins--so it is a great idea
When I am consistent with my walking and/or exercise, I do feel better for sure. The struggle is being consistent.
We find ourselves walking daily. walking does not require equipment, weird movements nor lack of time. Whether walking inside or outside, it's free and easy. Just put one foot in front of the other and JUST DO IT!
Walking is the best excercise
I love indoor walking workouts! No equipment needed! It does not matter if it is rainy and cold outside! I can get my heart rate up and break a sweat! Check out Lesley Sansone and Jessica Smith on You Tube. There are some on SPARKPEOPLE as well.
I started taking a walk with my dog every morning back in June and I have felt so much better. Some mornings it's hard to get out because I may not have slept well or the humidity is already so high that I know I'll be uncomfortable but she looks at me and I can't say no. It's been the best thing! And I disagree with those who call this a commercial - being a person who has always hated shoes, I have finally found a brand that works for me. Having the right shoes is so very important. I think that's the point of this short video - to take care of your feet and wear the right shoes!
Yes,. Definitely a hidden commercial.
I thought this was going to be good medical advice that I could send to friends to motivate them. Turns out it was just a commercial. There are places on the site for ads, they shouldn't be hiding in health videos.
I get shoes through a program for diabetics. I have yet to get truly comfortable shoes in three tries. I know I would enjoy walking if I had comfortable shoes. By the way, the shoes are fit by professional!
I have to agree with him as well when it comes to shoes. The military issued us some plain, basic cheap shoes during boot camp and it was hard running. Years down the road when my foot started hurting my doctor gave me a card to his favorite running store owned by a podiatrist. I still visit that store for my running shoes. The value of a good shoe is definitely underrated.
