According to the American Heart Association, walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity. Think it doesn’t do any good? Think again. Walking is low impact and easier on the joints than running. With your doctor’s permission, walking is a safe form of exercise for people with orthopedic ailments and heart conditions, and for those who are more than 20% overweight. Research has shown that you could gain two hours of life for each hour of regular exercise! That quick stroll around the block seems a little more worthwhile now, doesn’t it?
