What Dr. Rodriguez can say in an interview about
Walking and Health:

When you eat, your blood sugar levels spike. This is a completely normal event called a postprandial spike. This triggers the release of insulin, which enables the glucose to enter your cells which is then used for energy.** Now, doctors say you could drastically reduce these glucose levels by walking for a few minutes after eating. They’ve even gone as far as to say that merely standing can help as well, citing it could reduce levels on average by 9.51%.*

Tips to Enjoy Exercise More: 

    • Select activities you enjoy. You are much more likely to maintain an exercise program if you enjoy the activity. Do you like walking, swimming, riding a bike, working out at a gym, or working out at home? To start, maybe try walking around the block. Notice everything as a sensory experience; nature, bird sounds, flowers, anything, everything. This will take your mind off the exercise/activity. This approach works like magic for me. You can also dance to music in your home. Rethinking your approach to exercise will definitely help get you started.
