Did you watch the Obama's 60 minutes interview on Sunday? One of the things the President-elect misses the most is going for a walk, something he used to do on a regular basis but can't do now because of security concerns.
Indulge me for a moment and imagine how different our incoming President's life has changed. He has many people hovering around him, he shoulders the burden and the demands of the world and yet the one thing he misses the most is going for a walk?
Barack Obama knows and practices something most people don't - daily walking. If we just walked on a daily basis, we would be a much healthier nation. Walking reduces the risk of many diseases from heart attacks, stroke, high blood pressure even glaucoma and best of all it's a stress reliever. Walking is nature's best answer to more energy. It helps increase your oxygen circulation and boosts your immune system. Take a brisk 30 minute walk today; feeling extra motivated walk for an hour and you will be happy to know that you will also have burned 300 - 500 calories.
Health and Happiness
