Why Walking Is One of the Best Exercises You Can Do

By Genevieve Cunningham

Exercise should be a nonnegotiable in your life. We all know it's good for us. We all know we should do it. But the thought of hitting the gym and breaking a sweat just isn't appealing to many. Luckily, exercise doesn't have to be a chore. It doesn't have to be something you dread or despise. It should be enjoyable! If you need a way to exercise that is effective and enjoyable, take a look at why walking is one of the best exercises to start in your life today.

Almost Everyone Can Do It

Walking is great because just about everyone can make it happen. Young, old, health conditions -- you can probably still walk. You can go as slowly as you need for your body, and you'll still gain the healthy benefits. You can take your kids with you. You can walk with friends or alone. You can make it challenging if you're ready for it. There are so many ways to adapt it to your particular life. If you want something that can stick with you now, as you get older, and through the various challenges of life, walking is definitely a great choice.

It's Gentle on Body and Mind

Walking is good cardio, but it's gentle. When we choose to run, we put a lot of pressure on the body. We pound our feet on the pavement and put pressure on the joints. It's hard! But walking is gentle. It can soothe the body even as you exercise. It doesn't usually hurt, and it even makes the body feel better as you get moving. And it often clears the mind and lowers stress as well! If you need something that is gentle on body and mind, consider beginning a walking routine today.

It's Easy to Fit in Your Life

Walking can fit into your life relatively easily. Even if you don't have time to hit the gym or find a track, you can still find somewhere to get it done. Go to your backyard and make laps. Use your neighborhood streets. Walk at the local park. Walk around the block on your lunch hour. Fitting walking into your schedule is easy because it's natural and doesn't take much equipment. If you need something easy, look no further than a simple walk.

If you're not walking enough, it's definitely time to start. It's so good for you! Buy some supportive shoes, find a safe place, and get moving. As time goes on, you'll love the benefits it brings into your life and the boost in health it brings to your overall well-being.
