Health Benefits Of Walking For One Hour In A Day

Health Benefits Of Walking For One Hour In A Day


The excuses are from “I can’t find enough time in the day” to “I’m already overweight, so why bother?” to “I cant afford to go to  health club.” Although the excuse may sound reasonable,. they can’t hide one plain fact: If you want to feel better, look better, and live longer, you need to start exercising. If you are making too many excuses to avoid exercising, it may be that you have chosen the wrong exercising program. Try one exercise human beings are perfectly designed to do. Walk!

Walking is simple and easy to do wherever you are with very little expensive clothing or equipment. Research has proven that just plain walking for 30 minutes a day provides long lasting health benefits. Interestingly, there is no need for fancy outfits, weights, nor classes to attend.

Benefits of walking

Not only does walking get you out in the sunshine, it also enriches your health, both physically and mentally. It burns calories at the rate of approximately 100 calories per mile, improves digestion, heartburn, gas, and constipation. Exercise improves mood and helps lift depression as much as regular counseling does, reduces your risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and colon cancer, improves circulation, and helps relieve stress.

Find time to walk. This is one of the major reason most people don’t exercise. Dont worry about speed, how fast or how slow you walk doesn’t make any difference. The important thing is to get up and keep moving. However, it is adviseable to start with a stroll and finish with a power stride. Most importantly, set your pace with music and think about your feet before hitting the road.

    I do a lot of cycling these days, so don’t end up walking much. I enjoy it when I do, though.

    I do love walking, I prefer it with my headphones on and not as warm as it is currently, but I do love a good walk x

    I walk daily and it is a form of exercise, not that intensive, but still, is better than nothing.

    Just a little bit of exercise can make such a big difference. Alas, I need a LOT of exercise and to not eat in order to not pile on the pounds, but every bit helps.
