Get Your Steps In🚶🏻♀️
Good for the Soul, Good for the Body
Walking is one of the best ways to boost and maintain your overall health! Just 30 minutes every day can increase cardiovascular fitness, strengthen bones, reduce excess body fat, and boost muscle power & endurance.
Our ancestors would walk and travel large distances to hunt for food and shelter; it was the only form of exercise and truly effective. With our modern lifestyle a lot of us are often sedentary for most of the day, behind office desks or lounging on our couch. It is important to try to carve out time to walk so you can reap the health benefits.
Here are some of the advantages of daily walking:
1. Fat loss 💪
Walking is the best type of steady state cardio. You can walk in nature or also on a treadmill. You can also increase intensities on a treadmill with incline and speed to burn more calories. It also requires minimal recovery time as it isn't taxing to your body.
2. Improves overall health markers 📈
3. Improves blood circulation, brain and heart health 🧠
4. Can be done alongside other tasks 🤹🏽
You can use walking pads on standing desks, you can also listen to podcasts or attend phone calls. You can also brainstorm and plan your day during a walk. You can also socialize and plan walks as a healthy activity to catch up with your friends.
5. Improved Mental Health 💚
Walking serves as a great de-stressing activity! You can use this time for positive thinking and manifestation 🙏
