This Monday, Start Walking With Your Heart in Mind

February is American Heart Month and we’re highlighting some of the effects of physical activity on your heart. Making a plan to become more active has several benefits to your health. It can reduce stress, build muscles, and increase your endurance. Walking is something many of us do every day, several times a day. When it’s done for more than 30 minutes a day, it can be great exercise for people at almost any level of fitness. It also provides a great workout for your heart! It’s the first Monday of American Heart Month, so find some time to walk today!

Some people are a bit daunted by the idea of exercise or may not feel like they’re in the condition to take on something physically demanding. But walking is the perfect low-impact activity for people who are just starting a fitness routine, coming back after a medical recovery, or even pursuing something more challenging. Thirty minutes of brisk walking every day can add up to the recommended 150 minutes of moderate physical activity you get every week, even if that 30 minutes is broken up into 10- or 15-minute walks.

According to the American Heart Association, a daily walking routine can benefit your cardiovascular system by reducing your risk for several conditions such as heart disease and stroke, obesity, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes (as well as osteoporosis and breast and colon cancer). If the physical rewards weren’t enough, walking also burns calories, keeps your muscles strong, and reduces stress. And all you have to do is walk!

Walking is so simple that most people don’t even view it as real exercise, but it certainly is. While strength training and high intensity exercise burns lots of calories and gets the heart pumping, going for a brisk walk can be a very effective way to get in shape. It’s low impact and you can do it virtually anywhere for free!
