Walking for physical and mental health

My husband who will turn a year older in a few months is becoming more health conscious. He is not involved in any sports right now, but he used to play lawn tennis, basketball, billiard and even golf courtesy of his well-to-do friends and former colleague.

Lack of sports doesn’t mean that my husband lives a sedentary lifestyle like I do. He remains physically active and he walks often when opportunity allows him. He walks past the tall metal buildings in Makati on his way to work. He also takes the stairs instead of the elevator to reach his office located on the third floor. My husband said a few minutes of walk is like performing cardiovascular exercise or aerobic exercise. It helps lower blood pressure and burns lots of calories.

Hubby enjoys walking because it relaxes him physically and mentally.
