Walk. It is one of the most effective ways to maintain your overall health as you age. It provides a myriad of benefits both physical and mental. Grab a buddy and walk. It can be your spouse, your neighbor, your children, a friend, your dog (my dog is always ready for a walk) or any combination of these. 

If you don’t have a dog consider adopting a middle-aged slightly overweight pooch and both of you walk. The cutie above came from a shelter and you could not ask for a better friend.  He is always ready to help me get fit.  Dogs are wonderful companions and can reduce your stress levels and they are dedicated to wanting to walk!
