I must admit, I am not a stickler for exercising, but I have been exercising a little more since the pandemic, because I know I need a little. Since the pandemic has struck, I had to take stock in keeping my body healthy. I started a walking routine, which entails, walking in the morning for 30 minutes after breakfast and then 30 minutes after dinner. Walking is a great form of exercise according to the researchers of health and fitness. Walking can help you lose weight, can help manage with different health problems, such as heart, high blood pressure and diabetes. I feel so good after a nice brisk walk, it loosens up any stiffness and makes me feel energized. I know some of you may have conditions that will not allow you to take long walks or even a small walk. Try to walk around your house for a few minutes to give the heart a little charge. You will be surprised, and you are getting a little exercise. Give yourself a chance and try a little walk. Also, before I start my walking routine, I usually stretch my entire body.  What I do is I pretend that I want to touch my toes and I reach down for 15 second intervals.  I do this up to 15 minutes before I began my walking routine.  You need to take 10 deep breaths before you walk to give your lungs some exercise before you begin walking.  Take your time walking, take short strides, and then walk normal for 10 seconds.  Do that for half hour and you will feel refresh throughout your day.  When its real cold outside, bundle up but still take walk, of course if it is ice, snow, you can do exercise by walking around your basement or if your house does not have a basement, then walk up and down your stairs.  Moving your body is good for your health.  If you are runner, that is good, but I find walking is more relaxing and you can pace yourself to walk as much as you desire. Walk don’t run away from exercise.
