Walking is a totally free, easy exercise that requires little effort, and benefits not only your physical but also your mental well-being. If you’re looking for a simple yet very effective way of losing weight and improving your overall health, walking is something just for you.
People who are physically active throughout their life are much less prone to this disease than those who have a more sedentary lifestyle. And that’s because they have more volume in their hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for verbal memory and learning.
A daily half-hour walk helps avoid serious problems, like coronary heart disease to name one, by lowering high blood pressure and cholesterol levels and improving blood circulation. Because of better-quality and deeper breathing, some symptoms associated with lung disease can show significant improvement thanks to walking.
Muscle tone and weight loss is also totally achievable through simple walking. Find your optimal pace, but don’t break out into a jog. This sort of speed walking is low impact and doesn’t require any recovery time, which means no sore muscles to keep you from getting out and walking the next day.
The Arthritis Foundation recommends at least 30 minutes of moderate walking a day to reduce pain, stiffness, and inflammation in the joints. Building strong bones will help you prevent osteoporosis and reduce bone loss. Walking contributes to better blood circulation within the spinal structures, pumping important nutrients into the soft tissues and improving posture and flexibility, both of which are vital for a healthy spine.
A group of researchers at Iowa State University worked with hundreds of college students. Walking changed their mood for the better, even though no one warned them it could do so.
If you still don’t feel motivated enough to start walking for your health, try joining a class or find a buddy who also wouldn’t mind getting all the benefits of walking. Another idea could be to hire a personal trainer.

why cant you get foot wear, to allow the natral funchion of the big toes? and so , be able to enjoy walking, running, this is the reason people dont do it, footwear ,could turn out, to be like cycles, not made as comfortable as they should be., till people made recumbent cycles.
Someone needs to call EMS for that woman at the beginning. She has no water, is in the middle of the road and clearly left all urban areas. The temperature will drop soon and in desert/mountainous regions she could get severe hypothermia at night. She has no supplies to fight this and the coyotes known to live in those parts will pick her bones clean.
I love walking! I recently started walking the Manhattan Bridge everyday on my way home from work. I fell in love with it! It is very calming because you can look out at the water and if you get tired and need rest, there is always a photo op of the boats and scenery. The average amount of steps from my job, over the bride, and down to the subway, is 11,045 steps. I have the pacer app that tells me how many steps I take.
Since I now have my service dog. Walking starting small as not only ptsd but physical stuff. I’m noticing better waking time, less fast mood swings plus general weight loss. As more water and eating better foods comes with it. Sure I still have my meds. But since my Drs and shrinks got Veterans Affairs to get me to a exercise physiologist that was part of a group called veterans health. They are not just a gym guy that gives u a routine. But exercise physiologist a Physio and a physiologist. That all check in on you each session exercise physiologist stays with me. But other two come ask how things are since last make sure anything I need that they can get is done. The psychologist not there to take my ptsd shrink or full 1hr psychologist. But if bad day or avoided turning up, can have a chat in confidence and they have had experience with veterans. So do to no pressure after 3 wks I find my service dog and I leave house for a 15-30 min walk each day. Come home and do a mindfulness 10-15min meditation. Which after yrs in military and thinking Drs and other things no good. As fitness was always so high. It’s taken yrs to find walking general weights and stretching with the meditation 🧘♂️. The last one took 2 wks everyday for 10min to believe I did notice changes. For MY conditions things are improving all over. Long road. But beats sitting looking at the walls and probably drinking my self to sleep. Hey I’m not cured but wow weight is dropping I’m outside my best mate Trooper loves the time of just walking. As he is always there for me. But I think he can feel well Dads just walking not really thinking of anything but the trees the sky my breathing and watching him beside me. So from me it sounds strange. But just these things are improving all other areas. Even camera is back out and Guitar. Maybe after 12 yrs I might even meet a girl that I can go on a date with like a coffee or lunch. But it’s a change and not hurting my physical injuries but helping me. So there you go pretty unicorns and fluffy cloud stuff I know lol. But guess when starting a tiny bit it comes together each time. Maybe there is a pin hole of light in the distance for me yet. 🤟🇦🇺🤔
I find it easier to walk toward some place and then back. That way I make a goal, can pause and refresh and use a restroom, maybe visit with people or run an errand, sit and get my calm breath back or see beautiful nature sites... And finish my trip home without feeling as much like a death march.
John 17:3 this means eternal life their taking in knowledge of you the ONLY TRUE GOD and the one you sent Jesus Christ...
Who is Jesus praying to and why does he say this person is the one and only who can be truly referred to as GOD? Then he mentions himself also so we know he's not talking about himself. Also at John 20:17 after he's been resurrected he tells Mary he's returning to her father and his father to her God and HIS GOD... if he's God then why does he have a God and if he's equal to GOD and the true GOD is his GOD then he would be GOD to the true GOD because they are equal. Remember he's resurrected when he's speaking to Mary so he's no longer a human but a spirit taking on human form when he calls GOD his GOD. Also confusing he says to her just like he's your father he's my father just like he's your GOD he's my GOD. Are we to understand that he worships GOD in the same way a human worships GOD. If this is all true then it's very confusing.... I will make this simple for anyone who will listen to Jesus... we could argue all day long that Jesus is or isn't god but the bible warns against getting bogged down in the disputes of men... so if you truly love Jesus then listen when he speaks at Matthew 24:14 where HE says there will be a preaching campaign that would be preached on the entire earth and then THE END would come... so find a world wide organization that is preaching about a future world after this one is gone... join it and preach... this is JESUS CHRIST COMMAND TO YOU... Here's a hint... JESUS SAID... they would be hated ( John 15:18,19) what is the most hated worldwide religious organization on earth... EVERYONE knows the answer... Will you LISTEN to JESUS CHRIST COMMAND TO YOU?
Started doing walks of around 10k steps a day since January, along with cutting some things out of my diet I have dropped from 303 to 259, still dropping too. Highly recommend HIIT for those who can do it, it's a great supplement to just walking, three minutes walk 1 minute speedwalk or sprint.
An easy treadmill walk 3 times a week clears out the bad stuff, works for me. I watch the treadmill vids on my large screen tv as I exercise, & have walked treadmill trails all around the world, it is fun. After 1 year I am seeing real progress in my health.
The hardest part was getting into the routine of regular exercise, and finding the best time of day for me to walk, & most important never-ever miss a walk, even if it means walking late at night. The aches & pains went away after a while, just don't force it. Oh yes, I draw stick figures on a wall calendar to show my progress, lol.
I was walking 3-3.5 hours a day... Nearly 15-18 km...with best diet plan... The output was amazing... But due to extra work I reduced it 2 hours a day 10-12 km a day... Will it affect me badly (because I'm feeling it ) help me!!
I am 84 and had a heart attack 25 years ago. I walk 90 miles a month and it drives away depression. I am in better health than I have ever been. I have 60 BPM pulse, 119 chloresterol. My doctor calls me his hero. You just cannot be unhappy watching the sunrise and listening to Aretha Franklin R_E_S_P_E_C_T. I love life and surround myself with fun people.
My personal experience, I walk 3 miles a day climbing hill that is around 6000 Step each day! My Apple Watch keep good track of my progress. The result I see after just week are stunning. I lose 6 pounds of weight, I feel more energetic, mood is improved, my blood pressure were used to around 150/100 but after a week of walk it's came around 127/90 and my goal is to make it below the 120/80. Another benefit I see is I am gaining strength and fitness. There is endless list of walk benefits, so keeping this short I am addicted to walking now. If I miss my walk I don't feel better. Go move starting walking guys. Thanks for great video Bright Side!
That would depend on how tall you are (taller means bigger steps) and how fast you walk (the faster, the bigger the steps will be).
I am 1.83m tall, normally I do about 5,5km per hour, and I counted about 1175 steps per kilometer, thats roughly 85cm per step.
I walk 3hrs a day! My resting heart rate has gone as low as 45bpm! You just need good shoes and a path to follow! I’ve been walking all my life always used to do 1-2 hrs 4 days a week! I stopped for 2 years! Always a heavy guy but I got up 343lbs at one point! My blood pressure was high! The doctor was amazed at how Well my heart was! I just had developed thick heart muscle but had no other major problems! Now you can see what 3hrs for two months have done and my pressure is under control! Also it allows me double the intake on my diet which makes things less stressful when cutting back! Still reaching my goal! But in my first month I lost 39 pounds 305! Doctor said it was a lot of water from the hypertension lol! That was in July now we’re in September I’ll give an update when I go weigh in November!
This is such garbage. Walking isn't very effective. It's RUNNING that does it.
I was extremely overweight and walked for hours everyday, to no avail.
Started running a twenty minute mile every day and lost those extra pounds in six weeks.
Run. Don't walk.
I used to walk regularly until 6 months ago.Though I'm diabetic it was helping me a lot to control my blood sugar levels apart from keeping me energetic.But due to travelling and family functions and knee pain I couldn't go for my walks.I used to walk for an hour in the morning.But ever since I stopped walking I was feeling tired sleepy moody more than that feeling old..Last week I started walking again and I'm feeling much better though my joints pains a lot..But I'm not going to stop because of this...I love walking so that I can listen to my fave music and be with myself for an hour ...
The video's title makes no sense! Who does not walk every day? I wonder how this video creator defined the word, walk. You walk to supermarket for some snack; you walk your dog; you walk to washroom every day.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
