Why is walking good for you?

One of the most simple exercises and things you can do to help your body is to walk more. Walking is something that not many people realize can really be exercise. Walking is not too strenuous and highly enjoyable, consider adding walking into your routine for great benefits!

What are the health benefits of walking?

A simple reason why walking is so great is that it is a bodyweight exercise. This means that the odds of serious injury go down because there are no weights or other devices that could risk injury. From walking 30 minutes a day a person can see an increase in their cardiovascular and pulmonary fitness, reduced risk of heart disease and stroke, reduced body fat and so much more.

How should I walk?

The beautiful thing about walking is that it does not have to be a planned activity. Simply walking instead of driving somewhere can be enough to get your needed exercises. Also doing things like parking further from entrances, taking a stroll around your neighborhood and more can be simple as well as fun ways to implement walking into your daily routine. Just remember, wearing comfortable shoes and staying hydrated can help ensure that your activity is more enjoyable and safe!
