What Will Happen to Your Body If You Walk Every Day

37061 ratings | 1889448 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).

@BRIGHT SIDE! I would walk for 30 minutes daily, 6 times a week. But now, I plan on doing it for 7 days, for 30 minutes. I've been slacking off recently. Better get back to it. Great video, BRIGHT SIDE! LIKED THIS VIDEO!

I've been walking 6.2 miles a day, it certainly helps to keep me in shape but I wouldn't say that walking alone is good if you're overweight and are trying to lose weight.

I walk about 15 miles a week. Not on flat surfaces either. I climb big hills and valleys. If it was all flat I could probably do a ton more. I’m 45 years old...I think I do pretty well considering I have had 2 back surgeries, RA in every joint, high BP. I actually have issues with my eyes cause of RA, Iritis. I’ve lost about 30% of my sight in my right eye cause of RA. But, I’m not overweight. 5’10 195 lbs. I drink tons of water and juices everyday. I drink more than I eat. It does help my back also, a lot. I just can’t do sit ups cause of the surgeries. That sucks but I don’t have a big belly thank god. When I get to a big hill I don’t look up at it. I put my head down and just power through it. Great video.

I can tell you from personal experience and having dogs most of my life (meaning frequent long walks) that this is indeed mostly true. I never had any weight problems (tho' that's not just from walking a lot), I did retain a fair amount of muscle tone even when I stopped exercising for 6 months. I'm a smoker, yet my lungs are in much better condition than a lazy non-smoker living in a big city. Thankfully, I hardly ever get ill for longer than a day. And even-though I sit down for longer periods of time almost every day I only rarely get any back pain. The thing about height is probably BS tho'.

for 4 years i walked almost every day an average of 2-4 miles. i have reduced my portion to control how many more calories i take in each day. and i have gained roughly 20 pounds since then.

I used to be able to walk a lot, but sadly I now have 2 herniated discs, sciatica down my left leg, arthritis, and other problems. Unfortunately I can't even go to the grocery store without having problems, by the time I get home my back, legs and hips are killing me. So # 2 NO it doesn't help ME!

Danielle Guthrie (2 days ago)
I agree with this video! I suffer from lower back pain and the only thing that really helps is a solid, brisk walk. I have to walk every other day at least to keep it at bay. But I don't mind because I love any excuse to get outside and moving. Back pain, boo! Walking, yay!

I go to the gym for the elliptical. How does it compare to just walking? I tend to maintain a heart rate of 170 (it fluctuates) and couldn't hold a conversation because of breathing. The video said you should be able to walk and hold a conversation. What is the benefit of that? I'm trying to increase my depth of breathing and endurance, as well as lose weight. So the take away from the video seems to be that normal paced walking is optimal, but isn't it healthier to eventually pick up the pace? I'm trying to do what's best for my body.... I'm 51. Thoughts on the elliptical vs. walking?
i lost 30lbs walking to work everyday!
Walking every day many years and no effect...

Why walk when you can crab walk
VladR1024 (4 days ago)
The best way to guarantee to walk every day is to get a dog. It won't matter if it's thunderstorm or blizzard, or 3pm or 3 am. You just gotta go :) Coldest in winter here was - 40F, couldn't get her home before walking for at least an hour outside. My Husky gets me out 4-6 times a day, up to 3.5 hrs of walking a day. Plus, walking a Husky is an additional exercise for the upper body due to the leash- in our neighbourhood, there's several deer families, dozen rabbits to chase, huge group of ducks to chase into the river and of course cats. Never a dull moment walking a Husky :)

Thank you for posting this, I jogged when I was younger but eventually was forced to quit and start walking  by a Dr. who also told me walking was just as beneficial to my heart.  I don't get the coveted  runners high of course, but I found these benefits interesting, and wonder how much lower my health and wellness levels would be  if I didn't walk as much as I do. BTW, for those who may not know, I recently found out about a program called Silver Sneakers that is available to us seniors under some insurance plans. What this means is I now have a lifetime free Gym membership at, so far, 2 local and one world wide Gym. I never dreamed a Gym would be so inspiring.... and addictive. Hopefully someone who reads this will discover their insurance covers Silver Sneakers to.

I love the premise of the video, but why is just about everyone shown running rather than walking....it’s sending confusing mixed messages about which form of exercise is actually more beneficial.
