Walking is Beneficial to Your Health

By Virginia Laird

While there are millions who firmly believe that walking (alone) is not enough exercise to improve your health, there is plenty of research that says just that. Health and wellness experts say that walking as little as 30 minutes each day can have a positive impact on your overall wellness. A few reasons you should consider adding a walk to your day include:

  • It can help you drop some weight
  • Walking can help reduce stress
  • It is a low-impact workout

It Can Help You Drop Some Weight

Although walking is a low impact exercise it can prove to be vital in your battle to lose weight. Experts say that losing weight relies on determination and your ability to stick to it. According to research, often those who jump on board a hefty workout regimen tend to skip out on working out or completely give up on the workout regimen. However, according to the same research, those who walk and commit to walk find it easier to stick to this choice. As you prepare to lose weight make sure that you add walking to the park

Walking Can Help Reduce Stress

Stress is a growing problem. Many who struggle with stress may also suffer with a variety of health issues. Research offers plenty of evidence to show that walking can help combat the effects stress can have on your health. Making time to exercise (especially walk) can help clear the mind from the stress of the day. It can also help release the tension and stress that can build in the body throughout the day. Both physical and mental stress can lead to health issues including depression, eating disorders, and issues with blood pressure along with much more.  

It Is a Low-Impact Workout

The beautiful thing about walking as exercise is that it is a work out that almost anyone can do. Because of its low impact nature it is suggested for people who may struggle with a wide variety of issues including back pain, leg pain, or other pains throughout the body. However, it is suggested that those who do struggle with some variety of pain make sure they walk with a great supportive shoe and on a surface that is level.

Now is the time to hop on the treadmill or find your favorite trail to walk to get started on your walking regimen right away.
