Waking is an easy aerobic exercise. It’s safe, inexpensive, convenient and requires no training or equipment. Walking leads to better breathing, stronger immunity, increased muscular strength, improved balance and flexibility, stronger bones, better sleep and less depression.* Most importantly, the rhythmic motion of walking synchronizes your brain waves, leading to a calmer state and reduced stress.
Take a walking break for five minutes today. Instead of having a sit-down meeting in your office, try a walking meeting outside. How did you feel?
Express your love today!
