A free way to boost your health

Just walk. Click here for details.

These days, it's easy for people to get confused about exercise -- how many minutes a day should they spend working out, for how long and at what exertion level? Conflicting facts and opinions abound, but one Mayo Clinic physician says the bottom line is this: walking is good, whether the outcome measurement is blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, joint problems or mental health.

Unlike a health club membership or personal trainer, walking "is there for everyone," Dr. Levine says. "Walking doesn't cost you anything, you can do it barefoot and you can do it now, this minute."

I personally prefer walking to riding a vehicle especially if the trip is just a short distance away. I use shoes that are comfortable to walk with. And I do brisk walking whenever possible.

Walking is an easy exercise that one can do daily. Unfortunately, things that are easy to do are also easy not to do, so better take the initiative to make a habit of walking.

Walking is good for you, people. Best of all, it's free.
