  1. I am planning to go for walking or jogging on an everyday basis since long.
    This article has given me all the more reasons to go than to avoid it any further.

  2. Every bit of this article is true. Earlier I used to go for walks everyday and I could see a lot of improvement on my skin. I even got the compliment that I looked younger and glowing. Then I got lazy as I had to put a break due to some medical issues and it broke my routine. But now I am going to start again. It also helps you think clearly. 😀
