Walking is the simplest form of exercise, it is free and easy to incorporate into any lifestyle. The American College of Sports Medicine recommends 30 minutes of moderate level physical activity five days a week to see results which range from improving strength and cardiovascular health to weight loss.
A recent study in England also proved that daily walks have the ability to improve one’s mood, as the exercise releases natural endorphins that can elevate the mood of depressed patients better than antidepressants.
What walking CAN do for you:
- Increase weight loss
- Lower blood pressure
- Improve balance
- Reduce stress.
What walking CANNOT do for you:
- Build muscle bulk
- Offer a controlled environment like a gym
- Provide a predictable calorie burn like on a treadmill machine.
