Once you start your walking program, it’s extremely important to stick with it if you’re looking for long-term health and fitness benefits! How do you keep yourself in the program? The best way is to schedule your daily exercise just as you do your other daily activities: your daily shower at 7 a.m., lunch break at noon, etc. Plan to walk from, say, 6:30 to 7:00 a.m. before your shower most mornings. Before you drift off to sleep at night, tell yourself that the first thing you’re going to do after getting up is go for your walk. Soon it will become as much a habit as brushing your teeth and tongue. It will start your day off in a natural, invigorating way that will give you a healthy glow and happy frame of mind until bedtime into dreamland, that is a guarantee!

Another option is to take your daily exercise walk on your lunch hour, a wonderful way to escape the afternoon monotony. The increase in circulation, plus the beauty of the scenery, will invariably refresh you and cause you to return to work ready to go. Contrast this to the lack of energy shown by people who have spent their lunch hour snoozing, smoking, drinking or eating heavy foods. If you’re hungry, stop in a park, etc. on your walk, relax and enjoy an impromptu picnic of some organic fruit, raw veggies, trail mix, nuts or some soy yogurt, then continue on your walk.

You can also walk when you get off work, to unwind and cleanse your mind and body of the stresses of the day. Pick a natural, beautiful place. Within 20 minutes, you will feel like a renewed person. Plus you will be working up a genuine earned appetite for dinner!

The Discovery of Health

Excerpt from Bragg’s Healthy Heart Book – Chapter 6

Health has sometimes been defined as physical unconsciousness. Not all physical unconsciousness is health, but the greatest compliment we can pay to the functioning of our body is to be unaware of it because it is running so smoothly. Most young people do not realize there is such a thing as health because when young, most have it in abundance.

With the passage of years, however, we tend to become aware, thus more health-conscious. The adage is so often true that says: You spend your Health to gain your Wealth. In later life, its reverse proves true: You spend your Wealth to regain your Health. The health-conscious person usually becomes so only after getting sick, and we are of the opinion that most people over 50 are a little sick. There would be no such thing as health if it were not for the lack of it. Most people begin to discover health’s existence just when they need it the most. While health consciousness may be the result of impaired vitality, let us suggest this applies only to the common variety of health and health consciousness.

Invest in Your “Health Bank” for Comfort, Security and Happiness
Higher Health is essentially conscious or rather, it’s conscious of its unconsciousness. It is health pride, something you should truly cherish. It’s a will and a desire manifestation to live a long, happy, active and healthy life. Can you think of any greater comfort, security and happiness than that of perpetual sound health? Or that any of your loved ones need never be stricken with an early death from heart disease? Or that no one need die at an early age, unless by an unfortunate accident?
