Why I Walk
Kathy Babcock

New Hampton, Iowa

I walk to relieve mental stress, to clear my mind, and for physical exercise. Walking helps me with weight management, bone density and other health concerns, like improving my HDL cholesterol and lowering my LDL cholesterol.

When I walk I sleep much better. I’m more productive at work and life seems so much better. I’m able to focus and be positive with friends. My co-workers stated that I’m much better focused and upbeat when I’m actively walking!

Everyone should walk! It improves brain power and prevents heart disease, cancer, depression and is good for the soul. Fresh air is awesome even in the cold mornings. Thirty minutes a day is a wonder— make it a habit!
