Walk For Your Health

Yosef Meystel They say exercise helps your body in so many ways. But not all of us are able to go run, tackle the machines at the gym or life weights. Did you know that walking has some great benefits for you?

Take a few steps during your lunch break, get walking in the morning or take a stroll after dinner. Researches at the University of Washing and the University of Pittsburgh have found that those who walked the most in the study had a 29 percent lower risk of diabetes compared to those who walked the least. People who walk between 5,400 – 7,799 steps each day lowered their risk of diabetes; to put that in perspective, there are about 2,000 steps per mile.

Other benefits of walking are:

  • Lowers diabetes risk
  • Boosts your mood
  • Reduces ‘bad cholesterol’
  • Increases ‘good cholesterol’
  • Reduces fatigue
  • Lowers your body fat
  • May prevent obesity
