It's a great time of year to enjoy the benefits of walking for exercise. Metabolically, it helps control, weight, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels. A brisk walk can burn up to 100 calories per mile. Walking is the perfect complement to a sensible diet if someone wants to lose weight. Walking also improves cardiovascular fitness. If walking aerobically, the heart beats faster to transport blood from the lungs to the muscles as a result, the heart and lungs grow more efficient with a regular walking routine. This type of walking reduces blood pressure and the resting heart rate. Walking is even a part of medical rehabilitation in cardiac rehab programs. So, you can see how powerful and beneficial walking for exercise can be.

Psychologically, walking generates an overall feeling of well-being. Walking can also relieve depression, anxiety, and stress by producing endorphins, which are the body's natural tranquilizer. In today’s program, Dr. Reminga talks about the many benefits of walking and how to prepare your feet.
