Walking and the other benefits!!

I visited NYC this last weekend for the first time and found it a great place to visit.  Lots of amazing things to see and do.  Along with that, came a ton of walking.  Walking and the subways are good ways to get around there.  Did you know that there are a few surprising benefits to walking you might not know other than the usual known benefits?  Research shows walking can counteract the effects of weight promoting genetics. It also helps curb the craving for a variety of sugary snacks especially in stressful situations.  Walking helps reduce the risk of cancer, especially breast cancer. This exercise can help ease joint pain and increase muscle strength in the legs. Finally, walking can help boost the immune systems and help protect you during the cold and flu season.  Get back to the basics and walk for your health!!
