Do THIS One Easy Thing to Live Longer!
I like to stay active.
In my day, I’ve participated in some pretty extreme sports—including bicycling across Europe and hiking the Grand Canyon from rim to rim.
But you don’t have to be an extreme sports fanatic like me to get the benefits of a little bit of movement.
In fact, there’s one simple activity that just about anybody can do to reduce your risk of everything from cancer to heart disease to joint pain.
And you can get started today!
If you think you’re too old or too tired or too sore or too ANYTHING to get the benefits of exercise… I’m here to set the record straight.
Because you don’t need to run marathons or even break a sweat at the gym to get the benefits of being more active.
In fact, all you need to do is get off the couch and START WALKING.
One recent study shows that any activity at all—yes, even something as simple as walking—can help you live longer.
How is that possible?
Here are a few specific benefits you can get from walking.
- People who walk for a minimum of four hours of walking every week have a lower risk of heart disease.
- Another study finds that people who walk 10,000 steps a day for three months have lower blood pressure.
- Walking can strengthen your bones, reducing the risk of osteoporosis.
- One study shows that women who walk on a regular basis have a 14% lower risk of developing breast cancer compared to women who didn’t walk as much.
- If you’re suffering from arthritis pain, the last thing you might want to do is walk. But studies have consistently shown that walking can actually help reduce arthritis-related pain.
- Walking can boost your immune system. Walking just 20 minutes a day, five days a week, led to 43% fewer sick days.
- And of course, walking promotes weight loss. In fact, one study even shows that in people who walk regularly, their obesity-promoting genes were less effective.
So lace up those sneakers and get out there today!
