Walking is the most fundamental mode of human transportation, and has always been the basic way human beings get their exercise needs met. A website called Health Center has recently put together some of the essential ideas behind the health benefits of walking, and we thought it would be appropriate to share some of those with our faithful readers. After all, we are the premiere walking stick and walking cane company in America! 🙂
First of all, walking is good for your heart:
“In a study conducted by Duke University Medical Center recently found that walking 30 minutes a day can reduce the metabolic syndrome, which is one cause of the high risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. As many as 24 million women in the U.S. suffer from metabolic syndrome. Meanwhile, a study in England said that walking half an hour a day can reduce the risk of heart disease by 11%, especially for women.”
Furthermore, walking helps you sleep more soundly and helps reduce certain risks:
“National Sleep Foundation says that walking fast in the afternoon will make sleep more soundly. … However, avoid walking two hours before bed.”
Walking helps you get slimmer, helps reduce bone loss, and many symptoms of aging. Click here for the complete list.
