Top benefits of daily walking for health and wellness

Say you want to escape multiple deadly diseases like heart ailments, Osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, and even some cancer. To avoid all at once, just walk briskly for 10 minutes.

Walking is one of the most basic and profound activities humans discovered eons ago. First, they put it used for transportation- exploring continents. Now, in the modern era, walking has become a wall to fend off unwanted diseases and build stamina for endurance while boosting mental health.

A mountain-sized number of studies prove walking improves your health in several areas, ranging from an active lifestyle to strong mental stability.

Following is a rundown list of the health benefits of walking

1. Better Cardio Health: 

Many reliable studies point out that walking has a direct link to a reduced likelihood of developing heart disease. For example, one study in both the American Heart Association and PubMed Central suggests that walking no less than 30 minutes per day decreases your chance of coronary heart problems by 19%.

In line with these studies, the latest one by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) indicates that around 10% of premature deaths are avoided if you walk 2k to 10k steps a day.

2. Relives in Joint Pain:

Arthritis is another sticky problem that walking would help reduce as it has been scientifically proven that 5 to 6 miles per week of walking adds to the prevention of arthritis.

3. Strengthens Immunity:

When it comes to building up your immunity, walking can play a pivotal role. Multiple studies believe the risk of a cold or flu lessens with activity. In one such instance, a study took data from 1,000 adults amid flu season. Notably, those who walk 30 to 45 minutes per day were recorded to have 43% fewer sick days and infections generally.
