Better Health? Take a Walk!

By Donna Stark

Have you ever come back from a walk outdoors feeling like it's done you good? Like, really done you good? Well, it probably won't come as a surprise to find you're not the only one. As I am sure you already know, walking is one of the best forms of exercise for the body, and when you add the outdoor element to it? Well, you've essentially hit the jackpot of health benefits! If it has been a while since you've had that really good feeling or if you are feeling a little on the unhealthy side as of late, grab your walking shoes and head outdoors because there is no better way to get everything back on track!

Walking to Good Health

Caring for your body by exercising daily is essential for staying healthy and one of the easiest ways to incorporate some fitness elements into your day is to add in some extra steps. In other words, you should walk more. Making time to walk each day can deliver significant health benefits to anyone ... take a look.

Walking Improves Mobility

Walking is the perfect low-impact exercise for those who may be struggling with mobility issues. It helps to increase strength, flexibility, range of motion, and balance. In fact, the more often you walk, and the more you challenge your muscles and joints with hills and steps, the more mobility your will be able to experience.

Walking Relieves Joint Pain

Though you may think that walking will actually cause your joint pain to flare up, that's not the case. It's the lack of exercise that can make your joints painful and stiff. By walking every day, you will be able to strengthen the muscles that support the joints and reduce the pain that stems from arthritis.

Walking Improves Circulation

You don't have to be a triathlete to get your blood pumping. In fact, any exercise that gets your heart rate up is going to improve circulation and that includes walking. A brisk, 30-minute walk every day can improve blood flow and strengthen your heart.  

Walking Helps Maintain Weight

Carrying excess pounds on your body can significantly affect your health and lead to back problems, joint pain, diabetes, and heart disease. But taking a walk every day can help you drop those pounds and maintain a healthy weight, effectively reducing your risk of chronic disease and injury. 

Walking to Improve Your Quality of Life

If you want to make the most of your years, exercise has to be a part of your daily routine! So take the time each day to add in those steps! Grab your walking shoes and head outdoors. It's time to start creating the best, healthiest version of yourself!
