Walking can offer numerous health benefits to people of all ages and fitness levels.
Read on to learn about some of the benefits of walking.
1. Burn calories
Walking can help you burn calories. Burning calories can help you maintain or lose weight.
2. Strengthen the heart
Walking at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week can reduce your risk for coronary heart disease by about 19 percent. And your risk may reduce even more when you increase the duration or distance you walk per day.
3. Can help lower your blood sugar
Taking a short walk after eating may help lower your blood sugar.
A small study found that taking a 15-minute walk three times a day (after breakfast, lunch, and dinner) improved blood sugar levels more than taking a 45-minute walk at another point during the day.
4. Eases joint pain
Walking can help protect the joints, including your knees and hips. That’s because it helps lubricate and strengthen the muscles that support the joints.
5. Boosts immune function
Walking may reduce your risk for developing a cold or the flu.
6. Boost your energy
Going for a walk when you’re tired may be a more effective energy boost than grabbing a cup of coffee.
Walking can fulfil daily recommended exercise for people of all ages and fitness levels.
My favourite walking route is along the beach, it is called coastal walk.
