Walking is one of the simplest ways to stay active. The simple physiology behind this is Walking is an good aerobic activity that temporarily increase heart rate and blood pressure,leads to greater efficiency of the heart. The heart is a muscle with fibers that contracts and pumps blood with each heartbeat and delivers more oxygen and nutrients to other organs. Walking or any physical activity depends on three elements- the Intensity,Duration and Frequency of exercise. After several studies the cardiologist suggest us brisk walking atleast 30 to 40 mintues a day for all, and 60 minutes a day for those who plans to reach their ideal weight. But if you already have a heart disease or you have any discomfort during walking, consult your doctor about safety and set a goals just with stress test prior to starting any physical activity which will monitors and record your heart activity and which helps to identify safe heart rate zone. Healthy heart zone is 50 to 60 percent of your maximum heart rate. Fitness heart zone is 60 to 70 percent of your maximum heart rate. Aerobic Heart zone is 70 to 80 percent of your maximum heart rate. If you are healthy person you can monitor your heart rates even with smart watches or mobile app etc.. There are two important keys for burning fat when walking. The 1st is that you need to walk fast enough to raise your heart rate into the best zone for burning fat for energy. The 2nd is that you walk long enough that you are burning stored fat rather than just burning off the sugars your body stores for quick bursts of exercise. So Walk,walk,walk.. To stay healthy be active and make others active!

Unwanted changes, unexpected challenges, loss, disappointments, abuse or other forms of adversity often bring with them hurt or harm. Feelings of self-pity are quite normal and understandable. It is natural to feel sorry for yourself when you are having a hard time. But if self-pity takes over and you don’t reign it in, it is a very problematic emotion. The Problem with Self-Pity Self-pity reinforces the sense of being a victim bringing with it hopelessness and inaction. Your options seem very limited. You are preoccupied with the past and see it as defining your future in a very negative and restrictive way. Your perception narrows to seeing only loss, damage and problems. You believe yourself to be helpless, defeated and vulnerable. Self-pity may keep you rather passive, hoping to be rescued, by someone, somehow. The Power of Self-Compassion Self-compassion also acknowledges the difficulty you find yourself in. But it is not about feeling sorry for yourself, blaming others or dwelling on misery. Appreciating the realities of your situation, self-compassion is a nurturing attitude towards yourself. It involves treating yourself with the same kindness, caring and empathy you would have for a very dear friend: gentle and understanding with yourself when you are having a difficult time, feel inadequate or have failed. Instead of allowing your inner critic to take over or getting stuck in victim-hood, you look at yourself in a compassionate way and extend comfort and care towards yourself. When it seems you are the only one who is inadequate or suffering, remember that being human brings with it vulnerability and imperfection. Whatever your experience, keep a balanced perspective rather than ignoring your pain or exaggerating it.
