Do you have a place to walk where you feel comfortable or safe? Sometimes the neighborhood we live in does not have a route to walk equipped with even sidewalks, good lighting, or light traffic. Maybe you don't walk because you feel that walking does not have a huge effect on your health. Believe it or not, walking small amounts provides many health benefits which increase the more you walk. This post will address some barriers that keep us from getting the outcomes we seek from walking, like having a safe place to get our steps in, getting improved health results from walking, as well as what we need to know in order to stay safe and healthy during our walks!
We love being healthy and sharing with the community how to be happy, healthy, and strong!
