You are going to need to keep up with muscle contraction which helps maintain diabetic fighting benefits so it is important to have a daily exercise plan.

iii) There is almost no risk of injury or damage to body even if you have chronic pain. Walking can still be done.
iv) It allows for conversation with someone or a group of people.
