~~With the many different reasons to exercise and ways to exercise people generally don't exercise as much as they should. I think one can blame this, in a large part, on the rise in sitting bound work and sitting bound entertainment that has come with the rise in the use of computers, computer games and so on. Also, my guess is that people don't exercise enough because they feel that exercise is too complicated or to much of a hassle. So, my thinking is that to get people to exercise we have to simplify it. With this in mind, a very simple, non complicated, easy to accomplish and effective for health exercise is walking. Also, if people understood the health benefits of walking I think they would do more of it.

Walking, if done as recommended for good exercise, e.g. 30 minuets a day, the health benefits are numerous as listed below.
1. Strengthens bones, joints and muscles.
2. Helps improve cardiovascular health.
3. Helps improve balance.
4. Helps with mental health.
5. Improves balance.
6. Positive effect on blood pressure.
7. Helps prevent diabetes.

If you haven't been walking at a level necessary to  get health benefits from it you want to start your walking exercise routine at a non-strenuous pace and increase the time walking and pace as you grow accustomed to your current walking routine. A routine that would be a good place for most people to start is walking about 10 minuets a day at a non-strenuous pace.
