Take a Walk! by Denise Austin

Denise Austin is a long time favorite of both Sue and Mikeby Denise Austin
Want to know one of the best deals around on exercise? Walking! You don't need to join an expensive gym or hire a personal trainer, and you can do it anytime, anywhere — with little more than a pair of comfortable shoes!

The American Council on Exercise says walking is probably the best way to get active and stay healthy. After following 13,000 people for over eight years, they found those who walked 30 minutes a day had a significantly lower risk of premature death than those who rarely exercised. Their advice? Start slowly and build up from there. Even five minutes a day is better than nothing!

Just walk at a comfortable pace, focusing on good posture, and breathe deeply. If you're having trouble catching your breath, slow down and avoid hills until you increase your ability. You'll know you're walking at the right pace if you can comfortably carry on a conversation while you stride. Aim for at least 20 minutes a day, and you'll be well on your way to a longer life! It's as easy as that!
