      Walk your way to good health!

      Walking is one of the easiest ways to bring in some exercise into your life. All you need is a pair of sturdy walking shoes and you can weave it into your daily routine.  It brings a huge host of health benefits from helping burn excess calories, bringing down blood sugar to improving heart health.

      Boosts energy and immune function

      Walking gives you a better energy boost than a cup of coffee when you are tired! The reason is that this helps generate abundant levels of cortisol, epinephrine, and norepinephrine, the hormones responsible for increasing energy levels. It also strengthens your immune system and makes you less vulnerable to cold and flu.

      Burn those calories

      Walking can help you burn excess calories and also maintain your weight. This depends on factors such as the speed you walk, distance covered, terrain and your weight. Check how many calories you have burnt by using an activity tracker.

      Reduces joint pain

      Walking is a good exercise to protect the joints and this includes the knees and hips. The reason is that it lubricates and strengthens the muscles that support the joints. It also helps those with arthritis by bringing down the pain.

      Lowers blood sugar

      A short walk after a meal can help lower blood sugar. A research study done showed that short 15-minute walks thrice a day (after breakfast, lunch, and dinner) helped bring down blood sugar levels better than a 45-minute walk at some other time during the day.

      Increase your lifespan

      When you walk at a faster pace, the best thing about this is that it increases your lifespan. When you walk at a pace say 4 miles an hour, this brings down the risk of death from common health factors such as cardiovascular disease and cancer.
