The Daily Walk
As I continue to outline the main tenets of the nine natural steps in this blog series, I would like to close 2012 with one of the most practical of the steps: exercise. Specifically, I want to talk about walking. Making a commitment to introducing daily exercise into your life in 2013 is a tremendously beneficial decision to make.
Daily walking was one of the most important components in my learning to master stress and recovering from my breakdown. Walking is the most natural form of exercise for humans; our evolutionary makeup is built for it. This is why I am a strong advocate of a brisk, uninterrupted daily walk for at least one hour. Although I support and encourage any form of exercise that an individual finds enjoyable and useful, I strongly recommend embracing the following walking program for optimal health and to achieve maximum benefit from the nine steps.
