SLIMMER AND HEALTHIER

CREATING A SLIM, HEALTHY BODY FOR LIFE

13th January 2020 continued … Regular activity, including walking, is associated with lower mortality. This study was recently reported in the UK press with a headline linking even moderate levels of activity to lower mortality and reduced risk of 7 different cancers. The link on the main Blog page takes you to the summary of the study and spells out their findings. There is something wonderful about walking. It’s an activity that almost anyone can take part in, either on their own or with others. Particularly with a dog. Dog owners get to experience the joy of walking their dog in all weathers. They don’t feel self-conscious or strange being out on their own. They have a furry companion to keep them company. I’ve noticed that posts about dogs and cats and furry creatures get lots of shares so here is a lovely picture of my dog enjoying a snooze on the sofa: Feel free to share this post on your social media. Back to walking and the benefits of walking and meditating at the same time. I’m such a fan of walking I wrote the Walking Meditation to give walking a massive shout-out! You get to walk, improve your health (according to the study above), get some fresh air and absorb the wonderful positive messages embedded in the meditation. As I mention in the companion book, this is a triumph of multi-tasking. What is not to like about the Walking Meditation? How often do you walk through choice or for pleasure? Is that big lump of metal on your drive the only thing you walk to? Do you have one of those little step counters or a ‘Fitbit’ type device that monitors your steps? Do you think steps back and forth to the coffee machine are as beneficial as a real walk? I’m just asking … My advice, therefore, no matter where you are on your weight-loss journey is to try the walk. Find out what it feels like to meditate while you have your eyes open. Get excited about walking in different kinds of weather. Make sure you wear the right clothing. As I’m writing, it’s blowing a gale outside my window. ‘Storm Brendan’ it’s called, according to the Met Office, and it’s come on the jet stream from North America. It sounds very lively outside my window. I’ll be getting out in it tomorrow morning with my little doggie, who loves being out in windy weather. Enjoy your walking and do read the study summary. It’s always good when you know when you are getting extra benefits from doing something. Think of it as a freebie! I will explore more about hypnosis (continuing from the post on 9th January) in a few days.   Back to Blog menu
