3) to help prevent weight gain

4) to help improve and boost your bone strength

5) to decrease your cholesterol

Now, there are many other benefits too, but these are some of the best reasons to just get out there! Here's to your success!


  1. I have been having swelling in my lower legs due to sitting so much. I work 12+ hours doing medical transcription 5 days a week, sometimes 7 and lately my ankles have started hurting, especially my right one. I know I definitely need to get up and get moving!

  2. LOL and that doesnt include the time spent working on my home business, etc... So, I really need to be walking. Thanks for the great post!
