Reina Troiano
Physical activity doesn’t need to be complicated. Something as simple as a
daily brisk walk can help you live a healthier life.

According to Mayo Clinic, regular brisk walking can help:

• Maintain a healthy weight
• Prevent or manage various conditions, including heart disease and high

blood pressure
• Strengthen your bones and muscles
• Improve your mood
• Improve your balance and coordination

The faster, farther, and more frequent the walk, the greater the benefit!
