10 Amazing Benefits of Walking






Walking is not only the simplest form of exercise that almost everyone can do, it’s also a free activity that can aid in weight loss and maintenance. But you might not know that walking also helps:
1. Sharpen your brain.
Walking for exercise may become increasingly important as we age and our risk for dementia and other brain disorders increases. It can even help reverse the effects of aging. One study published in the Annals of Neurology found that the 69 participants ages 55 to 88 who who met the exercise guidelines set by the American Heart Association showed a significantly lower risk of developing Alzheimer?s disease.
Want to improve your cognition even more" Try walking backward. One Dutch study found that walking backward helped subjects literally think faster on their feet. Incorporating specific mind-enhancing moves into your workout ? such as moving in certain patterns with coordinated arm movements ? can also boost the brain benefits of walking.*
2. Strengthen your bones.
Walking can help strengthen bones and reduce your risk of osteoporosis. One Nurses’ Health study found that women who walked for a minimum of 4 hours a week saw a 40% reduced risk of hip fractures. While other forms of vigorous exercise such as running, jumping and weightlifting offer bone-strengthening benefits, the good news is that walking appears to do the same. That?s great news for those just starting a workout routine, people who must complete low-impact exercise due to joint issues and, of course, anyone who loves walking.
3. Boost your mood.
Having a rough day" Walk it off. Numerous studies have linked walking for exercise with improved mood and reduced stress levels. And it?s even better if you can take a stroll through nature ? walking outdoors near greenery has been shown to help reduce feelings of frustration and may even help put your brain into a state of meditation.
4. Enhance your circulation.
Regular physical activity like walking is great for your heart. It enhances your circulation, helping to lower blood pressure and reduce your risk of stroke. And it doesn’t take much to reap the benefits: Walking briskly for just 30 minutes a day is enough to improve heart health.
5. Reduce your risk of tripping and falling with age.
Stepping out on a regular basis could help prevent the trips and falls that can occur when we age. Balance loss and weak muscles in the shins can cause a shuffling gait that can put you at a higher risk of tripping or falling. Regular walks can help improve balance by strengthening the lower body. Walking with an exaggerated heel-to-toe action can help strengthen these muscles even more by emphasizing the movement of the foot toward the shins (also known as dorsiflexion).
6. Bolster your memory.
Having a hard time remembering where your keys are" Walking regularly appears to help specifically bolster the hippocampus, the part of the brain involved in verbal memory and learning. A study of women age...
