ON THE BRIGHT SIDE

75 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER
Life is a Special Occasion!
The first Wednesday in April is National Walking Day. The American Heart Association sponsors this day to remind people about the health benefits of taking a walk. The simplest change you can make to improve your heart health is to start walking. It’s fun, free, easy, social and great exercise. A walking program is flexible and can be done just about anywhere. It’s easy to make walking a regular and satisfying part of your life.
Take the first step to a healthier life by taking part in the American Heart Association’s National Walking Day today, the first Wednesday in April.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Of all exercise, walking is the best.
It seems like we’ve had a lot of holidays lately that celebrate walking. We had Take a Walk in the Park Day and Walk Around Things Day. Walking is a good way to get exercise and relieve stress. Walking is good for us in so many different ways.
It’s recommended that we get in 30 minutes a day but it’s good to remember that something is always better than nothing! These days, we’re spending more time at work and at home, sitting in front of a screen than ever before. We’re becoming less active, which can increase our risk of heart disease, stroke and other diseases.
For such a simple activity, walking has many benefits. It can reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes, improve your blood pressure, blood sugar and blood cholesterol levels. It can also improve your mental well being, improve sleep and it increases your energy and stamina.
I can tell you that if you don’t use it, you loose it, I walk a whole lot slower than I used to.
They say that today could be a little warmer for us but rain is coming our way. More cold and possibly snow could be coming though before this week is over. I think this must be a month full of April Fools days.
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday ! Do something good for yourself today !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
To be alive, to be able to see, to walk, to have houses, music, paintings - it's all a miracle. I have adopted the technique of living life from miracle to miracle.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
3745. for the many benefits of walking
3746. for a great pair of walking shoes
3747. for green leaves popping out everywhere
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
We may run, walk, stumble, drive, or fly, but let us never lose sight of the reason for the journey, or miss a chance to see a rainbow on the way.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
