Walking Helps More Than Your Waistline

This article is an excellent argument for walking more and driving less:

I love this great list of reasons to walk:

  • The average cost of operating a vehicle is 52.2 cents. Walking is free.

  • A regular walking regimen can take less time than going to the gym. And there are no membership fees.

  • When I walk to the grocery store, I buy much less. A car effectively gives me unlimited carrying capacity. When I have to haul each item home by hand, I’m much more particular about what I purchase.

  • Walking helps you become more aware of your surroundings. I see a lot more of my neighborhood when I walk.

  • The only pollutant you produce when walking is sweat.

The next time you’re tempted to jump in the car for a quick trip to the grocery store, remember to strap on your tennis shoes instead. You might just find a source of exercise that feels much more useful than walking on the treadmill.

    I am planning to walk to the stores to get food at least for the summer. My next shop day is moanday. I have been going to the store a lot so I can figure out what to buy.
