Is everyone loving the recent warm weather? Most of us want to live in a world that is sunny every day, however, here in Upstate New York, we have it rough. We have weeks that it will be snowing, sunny and 70, and/or raining! As we are inching toward the middle of May, our nice days have been steadily increasing.
Are you someone that walks every day when the weather is finally nice enough to be outside? Walking is just as beneficial as running or doing other strenuous cardio exercises. Walking is considered as a lower impact exercise that shares similar benefits with running. It calms your heart rate, reduces cholesterol, body fat and body weight.
Other benefits include:
- Boost your immune system
- Eases joint pain
- Helps you sleep
- Increases metabolism
- Good for your brain
Walking is considered the “Free Miracle Drug” because it is the center of making you healthy all the way around, from the top of your brain to the final bones in your feet!
Taking a walk allows your mind to wander, which is good! Walking gives your mind time to think in a healthy way by improving your memory and generating brilliant ideas. Giving your mind time to de-stress all that is going on, your self-confidence and attentiveness are increased. Walking frees you from the negative emotions/thoughts that you are feeling or thinking.
