    I love walking and tracking the steps on my fitbit flex. It's true that walking not only helps with weight loss, but also with mental health. I always feel some much better after my walk. - 9/21/2015 8:40:56 PM
  • Bookreader8, walking DOES help you lose weight. I'm living proof of that. - 9/21/2015 11:19:44 AM
    Thanks for the article. I enjoyed reading it and I am going to start walking in the afternoons when it is cooler. - 9/9/2015 3:25:22 PM
  • Great article. Will start using my pedometer once again. I have asthma so I can't walk outside in Fl. with this humidity, but I do use my treadmill almost daily and I work out at a Wellness center 5 days a week. - 9/3/2015 9:17:08 AM
  • I love walking, especially walking in lovely places enjoying nature. I find it helps me to find the joy and peace in life when sometimes I'm dwelling on the negatives. I also find it easier to motivate myself to walk, and to walk for longer, as compared to other forms of exercise. - 8/29/2015 8:34:32 AM
  • Walking is a beautiful way to clear your mind and thank God for all your blessings. Physical, Mental and Spiritual health is improved by a simple walk each day. - 8/28/2015 9:18:22 AM
    I walk everyday. I have a fitbit to make sure I hit my target everyday/week. Walking makes you feel much better and more energetic but it does not help you to lose weight! Believe me I have tried for years. There's only one way to shed less! - 7/22/2015 3:59:21 AM
  • This is a really good post. Walking has a lot of benefits and it helps to condition your body with low-impact exercise. People with knee and joint problems often cannot run or do rigorous exercises, but walking is something they can do to improve their overall health. - 7/20/2015 1:07:04 PM

    I the past I have not been motivated to walk. I am retired and go to the gym when we are home, on a some what regular basis However we have a very active travel life. I have read some of the comments from others who walk and it really has inspired me to start walking each morning at a set time. This is an exercise I can do no matter where we are. thank you for sharing - 7/10/2015 6:39:18 PM
  • I like the order of the benefits listed. Moving has more benefits than creating visible change. Walking is a mindset that challenges you to take movement breaks in lots of ways: short, purposeful, lengthy -- take your choice. - 7/10/2015 2:32:37 PM
