Improve Your Health By Walking

Benefits of Walking

Staying active is one of the best ways to prevent health concerns down the road but you don’t have to be a fitness fanatic to improve your health. The benefits of walking are well documented. Research has shown that even walking for 30 minutes a day can lead to better health by doing the following:

  • Reducing the risk of coronary heart disease
  • Reducing the risk of Type 2 Diabetes
  • Improving blood pressure
  • Improving blood sugar levels
  • Strengthening your bones
  • Helping you maintain a healthy body weight / lowering your risk of obesity
  • Helping you relax and de-stress

According to the Stroke Association, walking briskly for up to 30 minutes each day can help prevent and control the high blood pressure that can cause strokes – reducing your risk by up to 27%!
