Just Walk

You don't have to be Arnold in the gym to get benefits from being active. A new study showed that walking 6-9 miles a week slows brain matter shrinking. This reduces chances of dementia, memory loss and other aging brain problems. It really is simple, as there was no extra benefit to walking more. That is 6 miles, roughly 31,000 feet, which broken down by 2 foot long strides is 15,500 steps. Spread out over a week; it is roughly 2,000 steps a day dedicated to a walk. That is a little bit of work for a great reward.
