Ready, Set, Go: The Five-Minute Miracle Walk
Last updated: Aug 17, 2011
When we think of taking a walk, we tend to imagine even short strolls as requiring a bit of a time investment. But power walker Carolyn Scott Kortge, author of The Spirited Walker, is a big fan of the five-minute miracle walk.
The goal here isn't aerobic exercise or stretching muscles. Rather, she says, taking a brisk walk outside for just five minutes can be a great way to release tension in the body or fear in the spirit -- those pesky conditions that often leave us reaching for something to eat or drink instead. All you have to do is put on your shoes and go.
