The sport of walking and it's benefits
Are you looking for a sport to engage? Do you want to stay fit? Do you always feel stressed? Walking is a sport that people of all ages can perform.
This sport, unlike lawn tennis or kickboxing, is not as tedious or strenuous. But it guarantees to help keep the body in perfect shape. Walking requires only wearing the proper shoes, and anyone can be ready for a 30 minute of 3-hour exercise. Walking does not require you to sign up for a gym membership, which can be costly. It also does not need to be performed at a specific time.
Walk for Health
Walking is an exercise that offers not just physical health. It also nourishes the mind and enriches relationships. Walking around the park or the neighborhood, for example, allows one to see old friends and meet new ones and build up ties with small and regular conversations.
Walk to Improve
Walking helps improve a person's working ability. It allows individuals to practice discipline and resilience, in addition to maintaining a good body condition, which allows them to recover from stress and disease easily.
Walk to Live
Walking is also proven to the lengthen lifespan. According to various studies, individuals who habitually perform walking, as well as those who lived with high physical activity levels, tend to live longer than those who lead sedentary lifestyles or those who would not engage in cardiovascular activities.
- Additionally, the habit of walking relaxes a person. It allows him to see new places and breathe in fresh air. Though it is a low impact aerobic exercise, walking can provide more than enough physical health benefits, like reduction of weight. It also reduces stress and uplifts the mood of a person, making him/her less prone to illness.
- Clinically, walking is used to improve levels of blood pressure, heart rate, and stress hormones in the bloodstream. It is also used to control depression and the symptoms of ADHD in children. Walking is also proven to be effective in enhancing the body's immune system, which eventually reduces incurred health care costs in a year.
- Walking Essentials:
You should wear a reflective band on your arm when you walk in the dark. That may be a reflective zipper tag, sneaker ties or a reflective element stuck or sewn to your clothes. It makes you safe while you are walking in the evening. It let drivers see you from a long distance and may save your life.
A sports suit.
It let you feel comfortable while walking. But buying a new set is not "a must" at the beginning. Probably you have some workout pants and a t-shirt in your wardrobe. If you walk in town, you should wear jeans. They work as well.
A mobile phone.
It is necessary when you have a long walk alone, especially in the area that you don't know. But you have one, don't you?
Wearing a raincoat is much more comfortable than carrying the umbrella especially on a windy day. Your hands are free (or hidden in your pockets), and you can walk faster.
