We all know that walking is good for us. I have to admit that I have not always done enough of it, primarily because I get bored walking alone. However, as my adrenal fatigue and other Hashimoto’s symptoms have flared up, walking is one of the few exercises I can make a commitment to. I have begun to walk my son to school several days a week and then to extend the walk. On Mondays and Thursdays I am able to meet friends to walk and on other days I listen to audiobooks. Think of it is guilt free “reading” time.

Walking has many advantages.This seemingly simple movement, when practiced a daily or near daily basis can:

  • improve your mood
  • help maintain a healthy weight
  • reduce the risk of several types of cancer and type 2 diabetes
  • reduce the risk of heart disease
  • improve balance and coordination
  • improves memory
  • boosts immune function
  • reduces stress (and can be used as a kind of meditation)

 

With all of these good reasons, why are we not walking more?  To this end, I am thrilled to announce a new walking group in the Olympia area. For those close by, we will be meeting every Thursday morning at 9am to walk 2-3 miles around Rainier Vista Park.

This group is a chance to spend some quality time with some amazing ladies while getting your move on.

You can join our Facebook page or just show up. See you Thursday!
