Description

The next time you have a medical check-up, don’t be surprised if your doctor hands you a prescription to walk. Yes, this simple activity that you’ve been doing since you were about a year old is now being touted (along with other forms of regular physical activity) as the closest thing we have to a wonder drug, in the words of Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Judging from the research, its a well-earned reputation. Walking can have a bigger impact on disease risk and various health conditions than just about any other remedy that’s readily available to you. Whats more, its free and has practically no negative side effects. Walking for 2.5 hours a week that’s just 21 minutes a day can cut your risk of heart disease by 30%. In addition, this do-anywhere, no-equipment-required activity has also been shown to reduce the risk of diabetes and cancer, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and keep you mentally sharp. In fact, according to some estimates, walking regularly could save Americans over $100 billion a year in health care costs. Even a quick one-minute jaunt pays off . A University of Utah study in 2014 found that for every minute of brisk walking that women did throughout the day, they lowered their risk of obesity by 5%. No more I don’t have time excuses! Start walking, and you’ll be helping to make your community stronger, too. Social scientists have found that as more people take to the streets, neighborhood crime rates fall and the local economy improves. Its also a wonderful way to meet new people and connect with neighbors. Take a walk with your children after dinner. It can promote better communication, reduce behavior problems, and improve academic performance. Walking can even help your mood. A number of studies have found that its as effective as drugs for decreasing depression. It can help relieve everyday stresses, too. Tension starts to ease as the road stretches out in front of you. Mood-elevating endorphin levels increase. Many people and that walking helps clear the mind, too, you may even and the solution to a problem that’s been bugging you. So don’t wait for your next doctors appointment to get inspired. Put on your shoes, step out the door, and rediscover the joys of walking.
