What Will Happen to Your Body If You Walk Every Day

55091 ratings | 3056757 views
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.

It stands for Frequency (how often), Intensity (how fast), and Time (for how long).

I used to, but now it hurts my feet and worsens my arthritis pain. Bike riding does not create that problem.

My roommate and I are challenging ourselves to see who can lose the most weight by May 2019. We've just started yesterday with eating healthier, drinking water, and walking/hiking. I can say that for 6,000+ steps (depending on terrain) takes much longer than 30 mins

सालोंसाल सुबह सुबह चलने वाले लोगों का वजन बढते देखा है | ऐसा लगता है ये लोग खुद का झुठा समाधान करते है | ये लोगोंके बढती उम्र के साथ पाव अकडके पडते है | वजन बढनेके कारण चलने का speed भी कम होता है | मेरी राय ये है की जो चल सकता है वो ज्यादा जोरसे चले | जो ज्यादा जोरसे चल सकता है वो भागने की कोशीश करें | हर दिन अपना stamina बढाएं | सिर्फ 5 मिनीट भागनेसे आपके फेफडे (Lungs) इतना Oxygen पम्प करेंगे , शरीर की चरबी इस कार्य मे ज्यादा use होगी | Heart की कार्यक्षमता भरपुर बढेगी | 10 मिनीट भागना 1 घंटा चलनेसे कई गुना बेहतर है |

I haven’t own a vehicle since 1985. I’ve mostly walked everywhere I go and have to carry loads. I was in the Marines so I don’t mind the hardship. Rain or shine. Mile after mile but I do have to say is to keep it real. Walking isn’t a magic bullet. I held two high stress jobs for years and it really comes down to a balance. My eyesight is so-so and it’s steadily getting worse as I age. So, walking hasn’t helped me in that department. I’m lactose intolerant and so walking doesn’t help with 💩. I use to run a lot of miles in my youth and I remember Jim Fixx father of long distance running dying of a heart attack. It was either his diet and/or a genetic thing. Again keep it real. Many of the studies are still going on. Just like eggs being bad for you, another study will come along to say it’s good.

I belong to a walking group and in the last six years have walked 1000 miles ! But I have had to give up recently because of plantar fasciitis. I could still join in but think it aggravates the condition. I am trying various ways to improve it so I can get back to it. After all I am just a youngster at 86😀

I have anxiety issues and i really cant just go out on the road to take a walk. I simply cannot enjoy it for those specific reasons. I instead,walk around the yard. 20,30,40 minutes at a time. I kick around a soccer-ball simultaeously,cause i will still think too much and have anxiety otherwise. Lucky thing i rent with a landlord that has a nice sized yard.
Sal Valino (5 days ago)
The calm mind is a little misleading. It's more like a High and it goes away fast. I have anxiety issues and it really does nothing for me. Also, the increase of lung capacity isn't that true for me. I have asthma, so maybe it affects others different. I could condition my body to run 5 miles in 40 minutes at 225 lbs, 6'1, but I could never get past that. There's no way I could run a Marathon. I tried to train for one and my asthma flared up bad. Everything else is spot on, at least for me.

My knees will ache more and more each day until I am immobile for weeks, then when I heal enough to walk a little again I have to take it very easy. Then if I get brave and try to walk every day for exercise again they will ache more and more each day until immobile...Ad infinitum.

I literally get exercise and work out at least 3 days a week, go out everyday and many times work out for 4 hours in the summer in August. Yet, I have impaired eyesight, and two cases of Bronchitis, my asthma went away though.

My dog makes sure I walk at least 5 miles a day. He repays me for food and love not only with his own unconditional love but also with physical and mental well being.

About eight years ago, I became a borderline diabetic. I was 220 pounds and about 5"6 or 5'7". I have been checked six times and have not come back with it. I was told to exercise, which helped to lost weight by my physician.

My wife did the exact opposite. She went full diabetic, developed a whole caseload of multiple conditions, and finally died.

Chris Butler (11 days ago)
I was told in November last year (2017) that I have type 2 diabetes and was put on 3 types of medication. Not wanting to have to take tablets for the rest of my life, I decided to do something about it. So I downloaded a pedometer on my phone and started walking every day, no less than 3000 steps a day (sometimes reaching over 10000 steps) and managed to lose 13K. I know that's not much but I am 66 years old. I'm due to have my blood taken next week (usually every 3 months) to see if the HB levels have changed, so I'm crossing my fingers and will keep walking!

when i was younger, i used to walk in the local mountains for almost three hours. unfortunately, over the years, i have gotten so heavy, that every step i take is for me a major effort. i have to walk four blocks to my local bus stop every day that i go to work. you would think that after doing this for a few years now, that i would have gotten used to it, but I haven't. those four blocks are as difficult to walk as ever. so, i dont see how i can ever slowly but surely build up how much i walk. meanwhile, i have major health problems, such as a failed heart (i have both a pacemaker as well as a defibrilator installed into my chest), sciatica, scoliosis, pre-diabetes, severe obesity, sleep apnea, insomnia, depression....

Yes great video memories of college and intervals between classes we'd be out walking and when we would get back I (we)never complained about the classes coming up High schools should watch this I say that because the attention span of interest in a child last a minimum of 15 minimum It would be great if they allowed children to walk around when they are nervous instead of punishment and being labeled 👍✅🙏

It's very interesting that I came across this video because I am working on a video the difference between Angelic and human speeds I believe the fastest human can walk 15 miles an hour maybe 12 and according to the Bible Angels move at the speed of light. So I will be comparing the difference between Angelic movement and human movement this I do know most humans move very very slow
