Reasons to Implement a Walking Program

  1. Walking lowers the heart disease risk. Several studies have shown that those who walk regularly are less likely to develop heart disease than those who do not.
  2. Walking improves circulation. Walking wards off heart disease, brings up heart rate, lowers blood pressure and strengthens the heart. 
  3. Walking burns calories. Walking burns calories without burning muscle. When you burn more calories than you consume, you'll lose weight. Losing weight has benefits of its own, like lowering your risk for heart attacks, type 2 diabates, pre-diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Losing weight creates less stress on painful joints.
  4. Walking improves energy. Research shows that those who walk 30 minutes a day feel more energetic than those who did not.
  5. Walking improves sleep. Several studies have shown that those who took one-hour morning walks were more likely to relieve insomnia than who didn't walk.
  6. Walking lowers Alzheimer's and dementia risk. One study showed that men between the ages of 71 and 93 who walked more than a quarter of a mile a day had half the incidence of dementia and Alzheimer's disease compared with those who walked less.
  7. Walking slows mental decline. Several studies show that age-related memory decline was lower in those who walked more than people who walked less.
  8. Walking lowers the risk of fractures. Walking can strengthen your bones. Walking is one of these exercises that can strengthen bones, improve bone density, slow osteoporosis, and also improve balance. In one study, women who walked 30 minutes a day reduced their risk of hip fractures by 40 percent.
  9. Walking supports joints. Walking tones muscles that, in turn, support the joints. Strong leg, abdominal and lower back muscles take the burden off knees and lower-body joints.
  10. Walking is good for the soul. Research shows that walking 30 minutes a day may boost mood faster than antidepressants do. Why? Walking releases natural pain-killing endorphins into the body. Therefore walking is a great natural alternative for improving mood, and easing symptoms of depression and anxiety.
  11. Walking is economical. You do not need fancy equipment or an expensive health club membership to start a walking program. A good pair of shoes is all you really need to start walking for fitness and health.
