3 reasons why running can add years to your life

Leave a comment

It’s the season again, to start a fitness program.  Consider running after you have been walking first.

Running strengthens your heart muscle and tones the lower body.  This will make your everyday activities easier.  You can walk up those stairs without feeling out of breath. Your lung capacity will increase allowing more oxygen to circulate through the body.

New studies have confirmed that running may help bone health.  We lose minerals in the bones during the aging process.  Yes, you might have stronger bones.

If you are concerned about weight management then running can help.  It will also help control your blood pressure…and your blood sugar.  Scientists say that high impact activites, like running, lowers insulin production.  Yes, if you are a diabetic you can still run safely.  Make sure you tell your doctor what you are doing.

I have spent most of my life running, but if I have a long lay -off period I start by walking and running.  The Gallaway approach is safe, I use it and it works quickly to increase your fitness level. Watch the pounds melt away.

Dear friends, I first discovered writing while at Univesity studying Psychology and working on a BA. Taking English and creative writing alongside inspired me to start writing short fiction, including poetry. In addition, I completed a creative writing honors diploma. I still love to write fiction, but I've been told that my strengths lie in writing Non-Fiction. With all my current writing experience someone suggested Freelance copy wrting. The blogging topics I will write about are Health and Wellness for Women and a Writing tips blog for creative and non-fiction​ writers. Hope you enjoy my blogs, I am trying to add new ones bi-monthly. I will be moving all of my posts to this blog very soon, hope you enjoy them. Some of my original posts may not be available until I restructure the site. Please post your comments. I read my comments every couple of days. I look forward to hearing your comments or suggestions.
