Starting off with the basic definition. To walk fundamentally means to travel on foot.
It is a very common physical activity, in particular for those that want to lose weight or for those who like to stay fit.
Walking has many advantages and benefits. Few of them are as follows:
Important for heart health:
Walking regularly demotivates the chances of heart stroke or any disease.
It is considered as a less demanding yet an exercise with extraordinary impacts. It plays a role in suppressing the LDL (also called the ‘bad cholesterol’)
Heart Association tells us that walking 30 minutes a day can minimize and even nullify the risk of heart damage.
A habit of walking daily brings down the threat of type 2 diabetes by around 60 percent.
Not only that, by a percentage of 20 percent, they bring down the chances of tumor of the colon as well.
Helps In Maintenance of Weight
Of course, we all know that. By adopting a walking routine, you can burn about 100 stubborn calories just by walking for 30 minutes.
The researchers also say if you walk for about 40 minutes daily for six months, you can shed off 20 pounds. Brilliant!
Lifts Your Mood
This is my favorite aspect of it! Walk makes you euphoric and satisfied.
You will feel good about yourself and very energetic. What can be better than that?
