Walk for Life

Walking is my exercise now. It is the simpliest and cheapest form of working out. Before, I used to work out in the gym but now I choose to take exercising out in the nature because of my personal financial issue. Well, it is not easy for me to pay bills because I’m not working all the time and I’m also a full time student.

This year I put my health on top of my priority. I told myself that we should start to take care of ourselves now to avoid chronic illnesses in the future, to increase our self confidence, to improve alertness and to have an active lifestyle.

These past few years, I was a weakling and I had to see my doctor at least once a month to know why I always get stomach ache, get nauseous, dizzy, depressed and felt like I’m dying. I had an endoscopy and fortunately the result was negative. So I asked my doctor what could be the possible reasons why I was feeling weak and sick given by the fact that there is nothing wrong with my tummy. He told me that it is probably because of lack of motion, and lack of vitamins and minerals in my system.

Anyway here are the reasons why walking is good for you.

  1. It improves blood circulation.
  2.  Reduce risks of certain types of diabetes.
  3.  It helps you to lose weight.
  4. Compare to other forms of exercise, walking is the least strenuous of all.
  5. It prevents certaion types of cancer.
  6.  Helps you to cope better with stress.
  7. It helps you to feel better.

Aside from the reasons above, I prefer walking now because I get to see the views and take pictures!

Yesterday I walked for around 2 hours from our place and to the other side of the hill and home again.

Great view from the bridge.
The view back me. Still on the bridge.
I took the Bærland route.

Nice view from up here!

When I reached the main road, a snow storm passed by.
The wind was really strong!

A small tunnel.
Inside the tunnel. 
The roundabout
Another hill to climb! On my way home here.
Almost home.

These pictures were taken by me using my HTC. Till next post 🙂
