Learn the benefits of daily walking

 Are you suffering from joint pain or heart problem, stress, depression or obesity?  If so, then you should try to walk to get rid of all health problems.  According to a research, walking helps in reducing the risk of all chronic diseases.  In fact, most health professionals recommend walking instead of running because it is a low-impact exercise that is good for your heart and joints.

 Some people say that walking fast is beneficial.  On the contrary, some people say that walking slowly is more beneficial.  So tell you whether fast or slow it depends on you.  You can set the walking speed according to your health.  Because our body gets benefits by walking both fast and slow.  But if you are walking after dinner, then walk slowly.  An evening walk provides a break from the various physical and mental stresses of the day.  Taking a walk after having food in the evening helps in getting good sleep.

 Walking helps to improve your heart health.  According to Irish scientists, walking is the best exercise for individuals, especially adults, to reduce the risk of heart and cardiovascular diseases.  In another study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, scientists confirmed that men and women 65 years of age or older who walked for at least 4 hours every week had a lower risk of cardiovascular diseases.  Therefore, make sure to walk 4 hours a week to reduce the risk of stroke, heart attack and other heart diseases.

 Walking is a very good exercise that helps you lose weight.  You can burn 70 to 75 calories from your body walking 4 kilometers.  So if you walk at least 2 kms daily then you can lose weight.

 Therefore, it may be a good idea to take a walk to visit places around you, rather than in your car.

 Walking can also help reduce high blood pressure.  Researchers from Wakayama Medical College, Japan conducted an experiment on individuals with mild hypertension, where 83 participants walked 10,000 steps per day for 12 weeks.  At the end of 12 weeks, the researchers observed a significant drop in the blood pressure of the individuals concerned.  Even if you are unable to complete 10,000 steps per day, you should walk for at least 60 minutes every day to keep your blood pressure levels in check.
