Walking -- It's Good for What Ails You!

Unless you have an unusual health issue or injury, walking is just good for you. Walking is obviously good for fitness, but according to numerous articles and studies, walking relieves stress and promotes mental health.

Walking and hiking are both low impact. Low-impact exercise doesn't cause injury to joints. In fact, walking actually helps to increase bone density and reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

According to the American Heart Association, walking also reduces the risk of coronary heart disease; improves blood pressure, blood sugar levels and blood lipid profile; maintains body weight and lower the risk of obesity; reduces the risk of breast and colon cancer; and reduces the risk of non-insulin dependent (type 2) diabetes.

In addition to all these great health benefits, a stroll in your neighborhood is a good way to bond with your spouse, kids or pet, meet your neighbors, and catch a beautiful sunset. So what are you waiting for? Lace up your walking shoes and get out there!

C.J. Brookelyn in Bellevue offers hairstyling, manicures, accessories and more - Bellevue Examiner

After several productive months with Rodan + Fields skin care, I was able to splurge on having my hair done at a real hair salon!

I called several salons in the Bellevue area and picked C.J. Brookelyn based on price and proximity. I was not disappointed.
