Walking Improves Breast Cancer Survival

The Women’s Health Initiative study conducted at Yale School of Public Health found that postmenopausal breast cancer survivors live longer if they walk briskly for three or more hours per week, compared to survivors who had low levels of activity. This held true even if the women had not been active before their diagnosis.

PositiveTip: Walking regularly is an excellent form of exercise with many health benefits. Try to walk 4-5 times a week for 30 minutes a day. Can’t walk for 30 minutes straight? Then walk 10 minutes three times a day. It all counts toward improving your health!
