Walking might be the simplest, low-impact form of valuable aerobic exercise and daily walks can boost your mood. Not only is it easy and free to take a walk, but there are many serious health benefits to walking daily.
We all know that walking is good for our physical health, but did you know that walking for just 30 minutes each day can also significantly improve your mental health, mood, and life?
Studies also show that, as we age, daily walks can decrease cognitive decline and memory loss.
When you exercise, your body releases endorphins.
Endorphins naturally boost your mood and so will your daily walks.
And an added bonus of walking outside for exercise is that you also benefit from breathing fresh air, soaking up the sun, and appreciating your surroundings.
Because walking is rather low impact, you can take a walk with a friend or your family and enjoy a chat and some quality time while you get your work out in!
It is a great activity for all ages.
You can teach your children the value of daily exercise, enjoy time with your family, take your dog with you, or just get out on your own for some quiet, private time.
Taking a walk by yourself allows you time to slow your thoughts and de-stress.Tweet
