Walking is an essential movement we all require, and the best part is, there's no need for special equipment or athletic skills. Did you know this simple habit can help reduce the risk of heart disease, and improve blood pressure, sugar levels and the effects of Type 2 diabetes? In addition to toning your body and helping with weight loss, walking has been linked to improved moods, balance and coordination. You don't have to join a fancy gym or spend lots of money to achieve a healthy body, mind and spirit! To start, set a simple goal. Physical activity doesn't have to be complicated. Recent studies found that a daily 20-minute walk can add seven years to your life span! I hope this issue of Healthy Spirit can help motivate you to take the first step in incorporating health and wellness into your life. In this issue, you'll learn how to live life with zest from Dyan Cannon, and see how a local man now has an extra swing in his step— and his golf game—after receiving innovative, life-saving care at Saint Agnes Medical Center. Starting a new exercise routine isn't easy, but it just takes one step. Soon enough your goals will become habits, and your journey of a thousand steps will have begun!
