Benefits of National Walking Month

May is National Walking Month – something that plays right into the hands of quarantine/lockdown life as we know it!

This occasion is usually spread through the encouragement of large walking events, but this year, why not focus on yourself? Walking is a brilliant way to keep active and maintain physical and mental health – especially in these trying times.

 

Health benefits of walking include:

  • Increased cardiovascular and pulmonary (lung and heart) fitness
  • Reduced risk of heart disease and stroke
  • Improved management of conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and joint pain
  • Stronger bones
  • Improved balance
  • Improved fitness and endurance
  • Improved muscle strength
  • Reduced body fat

To gain maximum health benefits, aim to walk briskly for 30 minutes most days of the week. Incorporate this into your everyday life so that it becomes a habit.

 

Easy integrations also work in conjunction with the current pandemic we are experiencing. For example, if you are still working, spend less time on public transport by getting off a stop or two early and walking the remainder of the distance, or take the stairs instead of the lift.

 

Once guidelines are able to be loosened, make walking a more sociable activity by getting together with friends and family for regular trips out; be it simply around town, or a hike across local trails.

 

Make walking a pleasure, not a chore!
