Much of my success in maintaining a healthy weight is attributed to an exercise program. I have studied and read a lot about what the benefits are and have incorporated a program into my daily life. Did you know that if you walk for just 30 minutes a day, you will be healthier and help the body in a number of ways.
Studies show that an early morning workout which includes a 30 minute walk will increase your metabolism rate. The rest of the day you can be sitting at a desk and the rate you burn calories will be increased because you walked. Walking also is excellent for the digestive system and your cardiovascular system.
I also do a program that includes basic exercises:
- Exercise ball
- Inversion table for 10 minutes
- Stretching for flexibility
The total time I spend to accomplish this every morning is around 90 minutes. I feel great and have been told I also look good as far as having strong and toned muscles. I find the key is to never miss a morning unless it is an emergency. I have plenty of cold weather gear for winter walks and have the gear for walking in the rain as well.
