There are so many health benefits of walking , for us as midlife women. Getting out into the fresh air and striding along purposefully can improve your sense of wellbeing, as well as helping with menopausal symptoms like hot flushes, mood swings and depression.
Maggie’s book is great because it helps beat the boredom that can set in, if you rely on the same form of daily exercise. In fact you should vary the type of exercise you do, and include several different activities to get the most benefit.
But if you love walking, and find it easy to fit into your life, Maggie’s book is truly helpful. She offers 14 walking programs for you to try, each one tailored to a goal. Whether the goal is getting fit enough to enter a race, lowering your stress levels, or using your daily walk to enjoy music, she’s got the program you need.
Staying motivated is half the battle when it comes to exercising. Using all the tools you can find to combat midlife weight gain is a wise route to follow.
