Did you know that walking can improve your heart health?
Walk! Walk for your life! A report in The Journal of the American Medical Association found that a sedentary 40-year-old woman who begins walking briskly half an hour a day, four days a week, can enjoy almost the same reduced heart attack risk as a woman who has exercised regularly her entire life. So take small steps to increase, well, your steps. If you're in generally good health, the old standbys still work: take the stairs, park in a distant spot, and get off the bus a stop or two early. Whatever your strategy, take one step. It's never too late.
