“15-20 minutes of walking a day can transform your health. “Marizelle Eggers
Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention”
“the closest thing we have to a wonder drug,”
According to research walking can have a bigger impact on disease risk and various health conditions than just about any other remedy that’s readily available to you. It’s free and has practically no negative side effects.
Walking for 2.5 hours a week— that’s just 21 minutes a day—can cut your risk of heart disease by 30%. In addition, this do-anywhere, no-equipment-required activity has also been shown to reduce the risk of diabetes and cancer, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and keep you mentally sharp.
Walking can even help your mood. A number of studies have found that it’s as effective as drugs for decreasing depression. It can help relieve everyday stresses, too. Tension starts to ease as the road stretches out in front of you. Mood-elevating endorphin levels increase. Many people and that walking helps clear the mind, too—you may even and the solution to a problem that’s been bugging you.
So lets dust off the walking shoes and start working on your health and fitness with this easy and fun way to exercise.
