Walking has so many benefits. It’s good for physical health, but it also is good for emotional and mental health. It can be done with very little cost and in so many different ways. Walking with a partner is a good way to help each other keep to the routine. Families walking together regularly will making habits that will last, and can even become a family tradition.
The CDC says,
Walking is a great way to get the physical activity needed to obtain health benefits. Walking does not require any special skills. It also does not require a gym membership or expensive equipment.
The physical benefits can include weight loss, and an increase in stamina and muscle endurance. You can help your weight loss efforts by taking an exercise bar about 30 – 45 minutes before you walk. I use one that jump starts my body’s fat burning process and helps me get through my 45 minute walks.
Build up your walking routine slowly. If you overdo it, it can result in sore muscles or even shin splints. Always do warm up exercises and cool down exercises, stretching your muscles slowly and carefully.
If you do over-work your muscles, use a good muscle cream to help sooth sore muscles and for deep, soothing pain relief. I use a good one that contains camphor, menthol, methol salicylate and melaleuca oil.
If the weather doesn’t allow you to walk outside, go to a mall.

Like many lines of work, rejection exists within my business and therefore I am exposed to anxiety-related situations regularly.

Remember, yes is a good answer, but no can be good because it is one step closer to the next yes. Do some positive things today that will help you overcome and enjoy a better life and career. Don’t let anxiety win. It is the most important battle you will fight.
