7 Simple Ways To Spoil Your Heart By Walking


In today’s article, we’re going to be taking a look at some of the benefits of walking (for young and senior hearts alike). So with that said, let’s jump feet first in to see what your Cardiology Insights team have conjured up for you today.

1) Be a healthy role model for your kids.

If you’re a parent, then you will know just how concerned we can be at times about our children. Whether it is their mental makeup or physical makeup, children benefit from the love and care of responsible parents all over the world.

When it comes to the physical makeup of our children, we want them to be active and healthy. The best way that we can do this is by being a healthy role model. When we lead by example and show our passion for exercise and keeping fit, so will they, and walking is one of the best exercises you can do together, especially as a family.

2) Walk to the supermarket instead.

With today’s rising  fuel prices, most families are concerned with saving money wherever they can. If you own a car or two, you understand that the cost of fuel is a large portion of the family budget. That is why walking whenever you can is an excellent way to cut down on your fuel costs. A simple trip to the supermarket by walking will soon add up to quite a savings.

3) Escape your environment.

If you are a mother who because of your family responsibilities, stays at home for the majority of your days, or if you work in an office and sit in front of a computer all day, in all cases, you need to do all you can to escape your environment (if and when possible), by going for a leisurely stroll. It will help you to get through the rest of your, and provide a wholesome, healthy break away from your daily routine.

4) Get to know your neighbors.

Do we really know our neighbors?

Have we made an effort to visit them and get to know more about them?

Develop the habit of going for a daily stroll around your neighborhood and you will probably have several opportunities to bump into them at some time. There will be occasions when they are working in their yards or coming and going from various daily outings. These would be perfect times for you to introduce yourself and thus perhaps start a new friendship.

5) Save our planet, walk whenever you can.

We are all concerned about the health of or planet, mankind’s home. There are so many issues that are in the news about the destruction of the Eco-systems. Year by year it seems to be getting worse. There may be little we can do on a global front about the environment. However, we can do our part wherever we live, by walking whenever we can. This will help to prevent harmful emissions from polluting the atmosphere.

6) Walking does wonders for your psyche.

There is nothing that is more enjoyable that a stroll to enjoy the beautiful creation that surrounds us. It does not matter if it is a gorgeous evening sunset, or an invigorating scent from a pine forest, or a daily stroll while admiring the beauties of creation, walking does wonders for your psyche.

7) Walking stimulate your thinking process.

The best time to think is when we get away from whatever we are doing and take a walk. Walking seems to stimulate the thinking process. We are able to make decisions wisely and see things a lot clearer when we are walking.

Walking is simply the best exercise that you can do for your body.

It is a low impact exercise and requires no costly equipment. The benefits derived from walking are second to none when it comes to strengthening your heart fitness.

That’s it for today.

I’ll be back again with some more healthy heart tips real soon. Until then, take care and start from wherever you are, use whatever it is you have, and most importantly, do whatever you can.
