EP 158 - Calling All Martyr Moms: The Power of Walking The Dr. Taz Show

    • Health & Fitness

Regular walks with friends can help women reduce loneliness and the risk of heart disease.We’re experiencing a loneliness crisis in our country. A recent study showed that 73% of women admit to feeling lonely. We’re simultaneously facing a fitness and wellness crisis. Despite the fact that we have more access to information about how to stay healthy than ever before, we’re having trouble turning that knowledge into action.  The solution to both of these issues might be simpler than you think — establishing a regular walking practice with other women. Studies have shown that women who walk regularly with friends are 2.5 times less likely to often feel lonely. A regular walking practice also reduces your risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, dementia, heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and several types of cancer.  Listen as 99 Walks founder Joyce Shulman joins Dr. Taz to discuss regular communal walking.
