Want to lose weight before the winter holidays? Then walk during the fall season, which presents a mixture of the summer’s last heat and the arriving cool breeze of the winter. Walking in autumn is great for maintaining proper weight and lowering the risk of obesity, especially walking in the city, around the neighborhood and in the park.
The weather is now perfect for those walks in the city that never sleeps. Window shopping is a good and stress free exercise that doesn’t cost a thing. A nice walk in the day or evening will allow you to witness the City’s seasonal atmosphere that sets itself apart from everywhere else while losing a few calories. In-fact, walking enhances mental well being, which means, if you see a product at a store window your brain is already calculating if it’s in your budget.
Go out and enjoy your neighborhood and see what the locals are planning for the fall festivities. Many neighborhoods in NYC have already begun outdoor activities and events that involve lots of walking. So take advantage and get to know more about your neighborhood while reducing the risks of colon and breast cancers and type 2 diabetes.
Relish, as I do, the long walks in the park that you’ve dreaded because it was too hot and humid in New York City. Take long walks and look for new park trails that will have you appreciate the leaves that change from green to yellow, orange or red. At this time NYC parks look like pastoral paintings worth a fortune in museums and you have the opportunity to say, ‘I was there’. But more importantly, you have the opportunity to say ‘I reduced the risk of coronary heart disease and I improved my blood pressure and sugar levels just by walking’.
