Walking Can Be A Wonderful Family Event

The muscles of the feet, calves, thighs, buttocks and abdomen all work when you walk. The oxygen your body needs to function properly is distributed more effectively. The heart works harder, sending blood coursing through your veins to improve your entire circulation. Even low or moderate-intensity walking can offer many important cardiovascular benefits, according to medical researchers.

Regular walking: 3 to 4 times a week for 30 to 60 minutes, depending on intensity, can help normalize cholesterol, blood pressure, elimination and also fights osteoporosis.  Walking also reduces anxiety and tension and aids in weight loss. There are 3,500 calories in a pound of fat. If an overweight person walks just 20 minutes a day and does not change their eating habits, they can start losing weight.

Other benefits include the strengthening and toning of muscles, weight control and ridding the body of toxins through perspiration. A regular exercise program such as walking also has a tremendously positive effect on mental attitude. Just the act of getting out and doing something physical is, in itself, a mood elevator. The increase of blood circulation in the brain lifts the spirits, calms you down and makes you feel more self-confident.

There are also chemical reactions caused by brisk walking that increase the level of endorphins, which are vital chemicals in the body that make us feel good! Walking is an exercise that needs no gym, natural medicine that requires no prescription, weight control without diet, a cosmetic not sold in a drugstore. It is the tranquilizer without a pill, the therapy without a psychoanalyst, the fountain of youth that is no legend. A walk is a healthy mini-vacation that does not cost a cent. So, it’s easy to see that there is nothing to lose and everything to gain by investing in a good pair of walking shoes and going for a healthy fun walk.

Walking May Cut Alzheimer’s Risk – Walking 6 Miles a Week May Protect Against Dementia, Researchers Say

Walking a little over three-fourths of a mile a day may reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, researchers report.

Among people who already have mild cognitive impairment (MCI), walking a similar amount may slow the brain degeneration and memory loss associated with the condition, says Cyrus Raji, PhD, a radiologist at the University of Pittsburgh.
