Battling HEART AND STROKE

April 8 is US National Start! Walking Day

Categories: HEART AND STROKE | April 8th, 2009 | by Raquel | no comments

sneakersNo more excuses. The sun is shining, the birds are singing. Springtime is here. Take your sneakers.

Because today is National Start! Walking in the US.

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends the following to start your day at work today:

But why walk?

Simply speaking, walking keeps you healthy and makes you live longer. An hour of exercise can supposedly prolong your lifespan by two hours. That’s really good return for your investment!

Looking more into details as to how walking can make us live longer, here’ what, according to AHA can a 30-minute do to you:

  • Reduce risk for coronary heart disease (CHD)
  • Improve blood lipid profile (cholesterol, triglycerides)
  • Lower blood pressure.
  • Improve blood sugar levels.
  • Keep body weight and lower the risk of obesity
  • Reduce the risk of osteoporosis
  • Reduce the risk of breast, colon, and other cancers
  • Reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes
  • Enhance mental well being

In recent years, the American lifestyle has become more sedentary, leading to increase incidence in cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and obesity. Through the Start! Walking campaign, AHA is trying to counteract the sedentary lifestyle and reverse its effects.

The abovementioned recommendations are aimed for working individuals and the organizations they are working for. Start! Walking, however, should be for everybody from all walks of life, from the very young to the very old.

The Start! Walking message is simple: Walk more. Eat well. Live longer. Even if you miss the starting day today, you can start tomorrow. Or anytime you want. The main thing is to start doing it.

It’s not only AHA who’s encouraging us to get moving this April. Check other walking events:
