10 Things That Happen to Your Body When You Walk

Just put one foot in front of the other, bend your arms and start moving.

Regular walking has incredible benefits on your health and wellbeing – and the good news… we obtain these benefits every day. According to the Mayo Clinic, regular brisk walking can help you maintain a healthy weight, prevent or manage various conditions, including heart disease and high blood pressure, strengthen your bones and muscles, improve your mood, and improve your balance and coordination.

There are a number of ways to add more walking into your day. Try taking the stairs instead of the elevator, pace around while talking on the telephone, leave the office and go for a brisk walk during your lunch break, or get off of your bus/train stop a station earlier and walk the rest of the way.

Improve your circulation, enhance your mood, lower your risk for Alzheimer’s disease and live a longer, healthier life just by walking.
