I recently came upon an article which touched upon a walking program that could decrease the chance of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Some studies have suggested that by walking about a mile each day, you can dramatically decrease your risk.
It seems that this decreases the mental losses by improving the blood flow to the brain and therefore keeping the brain cells healthier. So one of the easiest exercises available to all, again shows great benefit.
Let us then begin a review of this exercise!
- There are very few medical conditions that prevent us from walking. Of course, always check with your medical professional before starting a new program. Beginning at a slow pace in a safe area is a perfect way to start.
- Good walking footwear is important, and replacement every 6 months or when the cushion of the heal wears is a must.
- You should start with a few minutes of a mild warm-up with mild stretching.
