Walking is free and offers numerous health benefits. This form of exercise can help your mood, help your weight, and is just plain good for your body.
Besides losing calories, walking can help your digestion, your joint pain, lower blood pressure and even lower your blood sugar.
6. Walking for Mental Health
Walking is well known to help your emotional stability. Practice deep breathing while you walk. You can start out slow and increase intensity as you continue or walk up some hilly inclines or stairs to increase your strength.
5. Focus on Form
Warm up with leg and arm swings, flexing to activate your muscles. Keep a good walking posture. A gliding gait with an arm motion, elbows bent, will engage your core. Pace yourself with a rolling foot walk.
