Turn Your Walk Into a Workout!
1. Counteracts the Impact of Weight-Promoting Genes – Researchers at Harvard analyzed 32 obesity-promoting genes in over 10,000 people, with the goal of discovering how much those genes mattered when it came to a person’s weight. They determined that when participants walked for about an hour a day, the impacts of those weight-promoting genes were reduced by approximately 50%.
2. Boosts Your Immune System – If you don’t want to get a cold or the flu (and who does) then walk, walk, walk! A study of over 1,000 people found that when participants walked at least 20 minutes a day, for 5 days (or more) a week, they had 43% fewer sick days than people who exercised 0-1 time a week. And, if they did start to feel under the weather, they were sick for a shorter period and experienced milder symptoms.
3. Relieves Joint Pain – Walking is a double-protection for your joints…especially your hips and knees… because it both strengthens the muscles that support them, and lubricates them. Research has found that walking helps ease arthritis-related pain, and walking 5-6 miles a week can help fend off arthritis from forming.
