All in the Family Can Walk

All in the Family Can Walk

I started walking regularly after we moved to New Mexico in 1989, and have been walking since. I’ve walked in many areas, states, situations. I’ve walked at malls, parks, airports, zoos, hospitals, hotels, motels, tracks, schools, college campuses – you name it.

I’ve learned to keep it consistent, and I’ve learned that I need to do things to keep me doing it. Here are three things that help.

  • Always find a way. Walking is an exercise that doesn’t take a lot of equipment, fancy clothes, or much planning, most of the time. You do have be cautious about safety, make sure you stay hydrated and walk within your own limitation, but for the most part, you can usually find somewhere and some time to walk.

  • Take nutritional supplenments. I take high quality nutritional supplements every day, and I drink energy B-12 shots to help me with my energy. This practice has helped me tremendously.

  • Pace yourself. You won’t always feel like walking at a fast pace. I don’t beat myself up if I’m a little too stiff one day and need to walk a little slower, but I still always try to walk every day. When I pace myself, I can do more in the long run. It never fails.

Start a walking program for yourself. Be consistent and don’t give up. You will see benefits.

She shares everything from ideas about products; therapies; exercise; green home living; gardening; physical, financial, emotional and mental, and natural and spiritual health, and so much more. She calls it helping people have a happy, healthy home.
