Walking Is An Excellent Daily Fitness Practice
Today’s topic is about walking, and this is an activity that I have been enjoying on a daily basis since 2017, tracking a few million steps each year.
What we know for sure is that walking is a simple, convenient, and accessible form of physical activity that can have numerous benefits for your health.
Some of the benefits of walking include:
Improving cardiovascular fitness: Walking can help increase your heart and lung capacity, which can improve your overall cardiovascular fitness.
Strengthening bones: Walking can help strengthen your bones, which can help reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
Controlling weight: Walking can help you maintain a healthy weight, as it can help you burn calories and reduce body fat.
Reducing stress: Walking can help reduce stress and improve your mood, as it can help release endorphins and other feel-good chemicals in your brain.
Improving balance and coordination: Walking can help improve your balance and coordination, which can help reduce the risk of falls in older adults.
Overall, walking is a safe, low-impact form of exercise that can be easily incorporated into your daily fitness practice. It is a great way to improve your overall fitness and health, and it can be enjoyed by people of all ages and fitness levels.
We have found that an intentional walking practice has helped us with our daily thinking practice as well. What we know for sure is that walking outdoors will help improve how you feel, and your brain power and definitely help reduce stress. Walking in the morning is best and not only does it feel good, but it helps with your sleep at night and that helps with your brain power.
“Research shows that regular walking actually modifies your nervous system so much that you’ll experience a decrease in anger and hostility,” she says, especially when you're going for a stroll through some greenery or soaking in a bit of sunlight. This can be particularly helpful during the colder months when seasonal depression spikes.
