Quick Tip Monday!!!

Lets Get Ready to………………….. WALK!!!

Walking, or should I say going for a brisk walk, is one of the most beneficial things you can do for yourself. You don’t need an exercise DVD, gym membership, or athletic build. Just put one foot in front of the other and WALK!

 

The Benefits:

  • It Invigorates Your Heart: The Stroke association states that walking at a brisk speed for 30 minutes can help prevent high blood pressure which can cause stroke.
  • It Decreases Disease Risk: Along with heart disease, walking habitually can cut your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, asthma and some cancers.
  • It helps control weight: In an article written by Peta Bee she stated that scientist at the University of Pittsburgh recently revealed that people who were overweight, who walked at a fast pace for 30 to 60 minutes daily, lost weight without changing their lifestyle regimen.
  • It Can Prevent Dementia: Being active has a positive effect on the brain and people of age who walk 6 miles per week could prevent brain shrinkage and maintain a healthy memory as the years pass.
  • It Can Avert Osteoporosis: Walking stimulates and strengthens the bones, increasing bone density and helping to maintain healthy joints which can prevent arthritis.
  • It Tones Your Legs, Glutes, Abdominal, and Arms: A good walk can strengthen, tone, and preserve your overall core, while taking off inches and burning calories.
  • It Supports Healthy Vitamin D Levels: Walking outside in the sunlight for around 15 minutes can naturally boost and give you a sufficient amount of Vitamin D.
  • It Gives You Energy and Makes You Happy: It increases circulation and oxygen in each cell of your body, helping you to feel more alert and alive. Your body also releases endorphins which is known to make you feel good by reducing stress and anxiety.

What Is Considered A Brisk Walk?

Walking at around 3mph is considered a brisk walk. So you’re not strolling along but you’re walking fast enough to increase your heart rate. You should be able to hold a conversation, but you shouldn’t be able to sing a song. If you can, then pick up the pace.

What Should My Posture Resemble?

Your back should be straight and not hunched. Keep your elbows bent and your fingers in a loose not balled fist position.

How Long Should I Walk?

30 to 60 minutes, but if you’re a beginner start off with 15 to 30 minutes.

How Often Should I Walk?

Anywhere from 3 to 5 times per week for beginners and 5 to 7 times per week for the more advanced.

Note: Keep a bottle of water on hand just in case you need to replenish your body.

So, rather you’re a beginner, intermediate or expert walker, always remember to make walking a fun and enjoyable experience. And if for some reason you feel like you’re not going to be able to take one more step, call on God and he’ll get you through it. I’ve learned that from experience.

No excuses. Just Walk!!!

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Rescue by Promise Keepers

Sometimes when we’re on our journey and taking the road less traveled, it’s easy to look around and get discouraged.

We look around to see others prospering, doing (what we perceive to be) anything they want  to do, and still living the life.

We may ask the question, am I even hearing from God? Did He call me to this place?

To answer your questions Yes and Yes!

He has knocked, you opened and now He’s here so that you can develop an intimate relationship with him.

Fight Inflammation!

Faith is defined as a…

  1. Complete trust or confidence in something or someone.
  2. Strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.

Have you ever had to or are you trusting God for something that is so beyond belief that your psyche can’t even comprehend?

Now try telling someone else what God wants to do and watch the look of sheer bewilderment on there face.

Seek God, Find God

Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Fill Me Up by Casey J

Now is the time to seek the Lord. With so many things going on in the world today–random terrorist attacks, senseless killings, suicides, job loss, depression, hearts being deceived–people becoming more and more desensitized to the needs and well being of others.

And why is that?

I believe it’s because we’ve become so overwhelmed with what we SEE and how we FEEL about what we see, that we’ve taken our focus off of God and the Word and taken matters into our own hands. The result? Messed up lives. Continue reading
