THE POWER OF A DAILY WALK

Something as natural and human as walking has very good health benefits for people. Walking is the most natural movement of the human being. We have been walking in this world for many, many years. That's why walking should be a priority that you should do every day.


The human body is made to move and the most natural and human movement there is WALK. So put on comfortable shoes and take a good walk.





But, what if I spend the day sitting at work, then I come home tired and just want to lie on the sofa?


If you are a sedentary person, I have to tell you that you go against your human nature. Even if you work at a job without movement all day, you should find a time to walk.


And if you are a person who goes to the gym which stops you far away and you need a vehicle to get to it. Then take the opportunity to walk there or walk on the treadmill.

There is always a way to have time to take a walk.



The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends walking at least 10,000 steps a day.


 

What if I can't complete my 10K daily steps?


Well, nothing happens, you can always get them back on the weekend. Try to find that half hour or hour for the walk.

In the morning before work, in the afternoon after lunch or even an evening walk. My favourite time is after eating when it's still sunny. It helps me a lot to have a break from the day and then continue working.


Unless you spend the day at work, surely you have a moment to go for a walk. It is a matter of organizing your hours and making that hole in your agenda.


 

Benefits of a good walk


Health organizations recommend going for a daily walk. The long-term impact of this daily activity is that it helps people live longer and better. It is the best thing you can do to start having an active life and avoid a sedentary lifestyle, which kills people more than people think:


  • Reduces the risk of heart attack: by increasing blood flow your heart will feel better and stronger. It is recommended for patients with hypertension.


  • Increase your vitamin D levels: especially when going out for the day. Exposure to the sun increase the health of our bones and the immune system.


  • You will lose weight: being an activity that is not very intense, you can be walking for hours. During this time the body will be burning calories and fat. So if your plan is to lose weight and you are an obese person. Just start by walking 30 minutes each day. In time you will see the difference.


  • Develop your muscles: especially your legs, buttocks and abs. A brisk walk can help strengthen these muscles, as well as improve your posture when standing upright.


  • Forget about stress: It is normal that after an intense day of work, our mood is bad or that we have a lot of tension. A walk is the solution for this, because it relaxes, clears the mind, reduces stress and even makes us cure insomnia, because it is a more natural exercise, in which so much energy should not be given.


After knowing all the benefits and being clear about how many steps are necessary. You no longer have an excuse to go out and take a walk every day.

Enjoy these pleasures that life.



Nothing better for your happiness than daily activity
