If your 2004 resolutions or goals include losing weight or improving your health, consider walking. A brisk 30-45 minute walk, 5 or more times a week, gets your heart pumping, burns calories, makes you feel better, and increases good (HDL) cholesterol. It's also an opportunity to think and de-stress, doubling your benefits. A heart rate monitor will help you stay within your heart's optimal range.
The hardest part is shoehorning it into your already full schedule. When I don't have time to walk, I do it anyway. I'm more productive as a result, easily making up the time invested. When you consider the health and productivity benefits, can you afford not to?
Other ways to improve your health include to get more rest and to eliminate stress.
