What are the benefits of walking for senior health?

Walking to Maintain Senior Health

Senior health care consultants agree. There is no better exercise than taking a brisk walk, especially when recovering from extended illness. Walking assists in weight loss and good respiratory function. Keep a steady pace at all times: slow when beginning, increasing your pace after a week or two. Walk on a level surface, as 'uphill' areas are more stressful as you begin this activity, and places extra stress on your heart. Have someone walk with you when just getting 'out' from an illness or just for company. There is nothing like a long walk to get people talking. You should enjoy your exercise, so find a nice park or boardwalk near a beach.
