Benefits Of Walking
Walking is a great way of burning calories, which helps maintain a healthy weight, but there are lots of other health benefits too, helping you to achieve a more healthier lifestyle overall.
Walking can help:
- Reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes
- Reduce high cholesterol and lower blood pressure
- Increase mobility and flexibility
- Increase joint, muscle and bone strength which helps reduce the risk of osteoporosis
- Lower the risk of developing certain types of cancer such as colon cancer and lung cancer by staying active
- Achieve a more toned and supple physique helping you stay healthy for longer
Walking is a safe activity, however it is always best to be prepared and understand your surroundings. The following tips are designed to help make walking an enjoyable experience with your safety in mind.
- Look out for other road users, when crossing roads it is easier to hear cars and other motor vehicles, but cyclists are much quieter.
- Gradually build up your walking stamina. Take it steady at first to help prevent yourself from overdoing it. With regular activity you will quickly see the benefits of walking and notice a vast improvement to your overall fitness.
- Wear suitable clothing and make sure you are prepared if the weather turns. Be sure to wear bright clothes and reflective clothing if you have to walk at night.
- Wear suitable shoes as well to prevent blisters etc.
- Cross roads at suitable crossings, always remembering to look both ways, and try to keep to well lit pathways.
- Consider finding a walking buddy from your work site by creating a free profile on Commute2Next
