You may feel discouraged by illness, ongoing health problems, or concerns about injuries or falls. Or perhaps you think you're too old or frail, or that exercise is boring! No matter your age or your current physical condition, you can BENEFIT FROM EXERCISE! Reaping the rewards of exercise doesn’t require strenuous workouts or trips to the gym. It’s about adding more movement and activity to your life, even in small ways. Whether you are generally healthy or are managing an illness—even if you’re housebound—there are many easy ways to get your body moving and improve your health.

  4. 4. 10 simple reasons to start walking 1. Fends off the #1 killer: Regular walkers have fewer heart attacks and strokes, have lower blood pressure, and have higher levels of healthy HDL cholesterol than couch sitters do. 2. Changes your Real Age -- pronto: As little as 90 days after starting a regular walking program, its age-reducing effects can be measured. 3. Dims your chances of diabetes: Thirty minutes of walking a day makes your muscles more sensitive to insulin. That allows glucose to do its duty inside your cells rather than pile up in your bloodstream (that's what happens when you have diabetes) and cause other havoc. 4. Helps you kick the habit: Taking a daily 30-minute walk is one of the keys to the success of kicking the smoking habit. Even just a 5-minute walk cuts down on cigarette cravings – 5. Slims you down: Burn more calories than you eat, and -- voila! You're wearing one-size- smaller clothes Plus, walking can help cut out those cravings and nix the stress and anxiety that often lead to overeating. 6. Keeps you sharp: Physical activity nourishes brain tissue and stimulates its production of neurons, synapses, and blood vessels. 7. Reduces stress: Anyone who has come back from a walk in a different frame of mind than they went out with can attest to this. Studies back up that walking benefits your mood -- and may even ward off depression and anxiety. 8. Revs up your energy: Not only can a walk perk you up when you need it, but also it helps improve the quality of your sleep, so you're more energetic all day long. 9. Boosts your immune system: Walking regularly can lower your risk of arthritis, macular degeneration, and even cancer by an astonishing 50% compared with people who don't exercise. 10. Keeps you going: Walking has the highest compliance rate of any exercise.
