What are the benefits of walking?

Benefits of Walking

One benefit of walking is that you burn fat rather than carbs, which you do when engaging in higher-intensity aerobic exercise. While you walk you are burning off the unwanted fat that has been lying around for a while. In combination with a healthy diet, a regular walking workout will reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, sleep apnea, and osteoarthritis. More benefits of walking include:

  • Lowered risk of breast cancer and osteoporosis.
  • A straighter body. Walking fortifies bones, joints and muscle fitness.
  • Studies indicate that walking relieves arthritis and back pain among older women.
  • A lower chance of depression and lower stress levels. Walking is not just preventative, it is a mood elevator. A regular 10 minute workout or 20 minute workout fosters your sense of well-being.
  • Better quality sleep.
  • People who walk regularly are shown to have longer, healthier lives.
