People who walk regularly live longer and have better overall health than those who do not walk.
Walking for 30 minutes every day can reduce your feelings of anxiety and depression. If you regularly walk for 30 minutes a day, three to five days a week, your blood pressure will significantly lower. Weekly walking from 10 to 15 kilometers helps increase gray matter in the brain, which helps to reduce the risk of cognitive impairment and problems with concentration, and can also halve the risk of stroke, especially among population over 60 years of age.
Walking is insomnia’s enemy. If you practice walking at a slow pace, 45 minutes every morning, for at least five days a week you will notice improvement in the quality of your sleep.
It is very important to note that people who walk despite living longer, their cost of medical care does not rise. Every minute of walking can extend your life by 1.5 to 2 minutes.
