In the neighborhood where I live I have developed the reputation as the guy who walks a lot. The reputation may be aided by the fact that I usually wear a Tilley hat. I have type 2 diabetes and have been managing my glucose/A1C in the pre-diabetic range mostly through exercise and diet. I have found that taking a walk is the easiest/quickest way to lower my glucose, and this New York Times article cites studies showing that just a two or five minute walk has positive affects. Ideally, I take four walks each day, one after each meal and an extra in the afternoon. The time and distance I walk is dictated by my schedule and the weather. During the work day I treat these walks as “coffee breaks” that are aided by the fact that I work from home.
