There are many fitness regimes to try, from HIIT to cross-fitting. But many of us overlook the benefits of a simple walk for our health and well-being. If gyms are not your favorite (or they are all closed due to global popularity), then walking is a simple, low-cost, and effective way to get your body moving.
NHS recommends that we should exercise 150 minutes a week, even if we walk 10 minutes a day to achieve this goal. So, no matter how busy you are, you should be able to adapt to your day.
The benefits of walking
Before we fall into the tricks and tricks, it is worth seeing some of the amazing benefits that regular walks can bring to our health and well-being. Walking can easily be considered an "inappropriate" exercise, but it is far from the truth. Walking is good for our body, our mind, and even our social life.
1. Walking is good for our health.
Physical activity is very important to our health and can reduce the risk of diseases such as diabetes, liver disease, cancer, arthritis and cardiovascular disease. But not everyone can do high-intensity exercise. Walking is a gentle way of moving our bodies.
2. Walking is good for our mental health.
Walking combines physical activity and outdoor time. Both are beneficial to our mental health. Regular walks are good for a range of mental health problems, including depression, anxiety and insomnia.
3. Walking can reduce loneliness
According to the campaign to end loneliness in the UK, 45% of adults sometimes feel lonely. This is not only harmful to our mental health, but also has an impact on our physical health, leading to high blood pressure and heart disease.
Fortunately, hobbies like walking can help us overcome loneliness and give us an organized way to get along with others. Walking with friends or joining a walking group is a good way to prevent loneliness.
I hope you now believe that walking every day is good for your health. But how do you make sure that you can get the most out of your new walking habits? Let's look at some practical ways to ensure that your walks provide you with all the benefits you need.
