Heart Health: Go for a Walk

If you were to step outside your house,  where would an hour of walking take you?

Look around, see how many varieties of mushrooms you can find along the way…

Would you find something unexpected?

Go explore! An hour of walking not only burns between 170 – 450 calories (depending on weight and intensity) but strengthens your heart as well. The more fit your heart is, the more blood your heart will be able to pump with each heartbeat.

Don’t have an hour?

Remember this fact; you actually receive health benefits from just one minute of exercise per day.  So, no excuses!  Make time and go for a walk today.
