Join other OLLI members for a morning self-paced walk from our RGC courtyard through the Arboretum and back. Sustained walking, with the correct walking posture, for a minimum of 30 to 60 minutes a day, five days a week reduces health risks and has overall health benefits. These include reducing the risk of cancer, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, anxiety, depression and osteoporosis, as well as increasing HDL (good cholesterol) and reducing LDL (bad cholesterol) levels. Life expectancy is also likely to be enhanced, even for individuals suffering from obesity or high blood pressure. Studies have shown that walking may also reduce the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
