Dr. Mike Evans is a family Physician who practices out of Toronto, and talks about his favorite preventative medicine at www.myfavouritemedicine.com. Evans says that he is often asked what the single best thing is that people can do to improve their health. He decided to answer the question in video format, and his video was so informative and engaging that it went viral! Evans says that walking for thirty minutes a day is the best thing people can do to keep themselves healthy. I think his answer really underscores the importance and impressive benefits of low intensity movement.
Many of us who live in modern societies spend too much time being sedentary. We sit at work, we sit at school, we sit during our commute, and we sit during our leisure time when we read, watch TV, and use the computer. The last one is my Achilles heel, as it is not uncommon for me to spend hours at a time in front of a computer screen. There are two free computer applications that I use which mitigate the consequences of my computer use.
Shoes are an accessory that most everyone uses on a daily basis. People wear different shoes for different uses, ranging from formal shoes to wear with a suit, to casual shoes to wear on a hot day. Shoes are picked based on their aesthetics as well as their function. I have a rather peculiar taste in footwear so I won't comment much on aesthetics. The function of shoes is really what I am interested in.
