Women are busy. Women in their 40s even more so. You have families, friends, work commitments and not much time for yourself.
So we are making things easier for you and creating a set time and group to enjoy walking together and where you can bring your kids and pets too.
Now that the weather is improving, and spring is most definitely in the air, there’s no excuse not to get out of the house for a leisurely stroll to stretch those legs and take in the wonder of nature.
And walking is just plain good for you.

Let this healthy habit help you:
According to a recent study, though, taking a long walk isn’t just a good way to brighten your mood and enhance your day; it can actually save your life.
Among walking’s benefits, you can experience:
Longer life: A study of some 8,000 men published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that over 12 years, walking two miles a day dropped the risk of death by nearly 50 percent. Walking seems to be particularly protective against cancer. The walkers cut their risk of death from cancer during the study period by about 65 percent.
Lower weight: Several studies have shown that walking from 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day—roughly four to five miles—is highly effective as a means of weight loss.
A better brain: The National Council on Aging found that walking 45 minutes daily at a rather brisk 16-minute mile pace significantly boosted cognitive performance in people over age 60. Another study found that walking 40 minutes three times weekly slowed the normal, age-related shrinkage of the hippocampus. This part of the brain consolidates short-term memory and is one of the first regions to be damaged in those who have Alzheimer’s disease.
Plus New research being presented at the American College of Cardiology’s 67th Annual Scientific Session has found that walking for just 40 minutes several times per week reduces the risk of heart failure in post-menopausal women by a whopping 25 percent.
Just a little over half an hour outside couple times a week can significantly improve and elongate your life.
