Walk Your Way To Feeling Better

When you're feeling tired, working out is probably the last thing on your mind. But before you flop down in front of the TV, consider this. Research says that regular exercise will do more to boost your energy level than anything else. Doing just 20 minutes of aerobic activity 3 days a week, will increase your energy level by 20%. Don't worry if you're out of shape, your workout doesn't have to be intense to be effective. Even low intensity activities such as a leisurely walk will help to boost your energy. So the next time you're feeling zapped, put on a pair of tennis shoes and go for a walk. Walking is the ultimate stress reducer and energizer.

Good reminder!

I have a tendency to plan runs - but would like to walk more - thankfully I have a dog to remind me.
