Whether it's around the neighborhood, around the mall, or exploring new territory, the benefits of walking abound. Making walking a regular habit is an easy way to "find time for fitness."
Walking helps improve strength and muscle tone. It burns calories and can help control appetite. It's a great activity for helping with diabetes, weight loss and healthy weight management. Walking, especially brisk walking, also helps improve cardiovascular fitness and strengthens bones.
Just 30 minutes of brisk walking a day has been shown to decrease the risks associated with conditions ranging from heart disease and stroke to depression and some cancers.
And finally, walking also simply helps you relax, unwind, and improve your overall sense of wellness. It reduces stress and can help you sleep better at night.
And to think, all you need is a comfortable pair of shoes with good support...
