Excerpt from Bragg Vegetarian Health Recipes – Chapter 13

Actions speak louder than words and can change your mood if you feel depressed. Take a walk outside – it often helps you sort out and solve your problems. Spend time with a young child – it simplifies life and puts everything in perspective. Find the comics section in the newspaper or something funny to read and laugh.

If someone is upset, try to analyze the situation from that person’s perspective. Make yourself physically smile and laugh, it opens the blood vessels in the back of your head and physically lifts your mood. Choose to be happy in spite of circumstances. No one “makes” you happy – it’s an attitude that comes from within.

The muscles of the feet, calves, thighs, buttocks and abdomen all work when you walk. The oxygen your body needs to function properly is distributed more effectively. The heart works harder, sending blood coursing through your veins to improve your entire circulation. Even low or moderate-intensity walking can offer many important cardiovascular benefits, according to medical researchers. Regular walking: 3 to 4 times a week for 30 to 60 minutes, depending on intensity, can help normalize cholesterol, blood pressure, elimination and also fights osteoporosis.

Walking also reduces anxiety and tension and aids in weight loss. There are 3,500 calories in a pound of fat. If an overweight person walks just 20 minutes a day and does not change their eating habits, they can start losing weight.

Other benefits include the strengthening and toning of muscles, weight control and ridding the body of toxins through perspiration. A regular exercise program such as walking also has a tremendously positive effect on mental attitude. Just the act of getting out and doing something physical is, in itself, a mood elevator. The increase of blood circulation in the brain lifts the spirits, calms you down and makes you feel more self-confident. There are also chemical reactions caused by brisk walking that increase the level of endorphins, which are vital chemicals in the body that make us feel good!

Walking is an exercise that needs no gym, natural medicine that requires no prescription, weight control without diet, a cosmetic not sold in a drugstore. It is the tranquilizer without a pill, the therapy without a psychoanalyst, the fountain of youth that is no legend. A walk is a healthy mini-vacation that does not cost a cent. So, it’s easy to see that there is nothing to lose and everything to gain by investing in a good pair of walking shoes and going for a healthy fun walk.
