What Could 30-Minute Walks Do for You?

By Sandy Schroeder

Most of us quickly use up 30 minutes on the phone or online every day. Why not head outside and make those 30 minutes count? Look what might happen if you do 30 minutes of walking. 

You may really relax – Just getting outside and moving can take tension down a notch, leaving you calmer and more ready to deal with the day.  Daily pressures and deadlines may seem more more manageable.

150 calories may disappear – Daily walking can use up some of those calories that we all want to delete, according to

Your head may clear – Creative new ideas may show up for all sorts of issues. When I walk, my mind begins to click through my thoughts and often hands me completely new approaches.

More fitness may follow – Once I start to move I want to do more. Getting out for an early walk or adding short walks to the day may lead to a new yoga class or tai chi. As your 30-minute walk begins to fit into your schedule, you may find yourself out there biking or running, too.

You may lose the blues – If you have found yourself feeling down a lot, regular walking outside may make everything look better. Later, taking a walk with your kids or walking with your dog may be good, too.

Your jeans may fit better – Walking may prove to be an easy way to tone the body and drop a few pounds.

You may inspire others to walk – Finding a buddy who wants to walk, or getting your family to walk may be easier than you thought. Walking can be a great way to talk about the day without making it a big deal.

Aches and pains drop back – If you have had twinges in your knees, back or legs, regular walking may help strengthen muscles and ease the pain.

You may sleep better – Just getting outside and moving for half an hour daily could help you rest better at night. Exercise and fresh air can reduce tension and help you wind down at the end of the day.

Your legs may look better – Walking can tone the muscles in your calves and thighs as you strengthen your legs.

Improve digestion – Walking after meals can help stabilize blood sugar and help the digestive system function better.

If these sound like good options, start walking in 15-minute intervals or do a 30-minute stretch and watch what happens next.
