Numerous studies have confirmed that daily walking burns calories and is good for your heart. But walking just 30 minutes a day has also shown that it takes the away the negative feelings of tension and stress thus improving your overall wellbeing.
To get the benefits you need to know what the experts recommend. Women should walk a mile in 20 minutes (~3mph). Men slightly faster at 3.5 mph gradually increasing to 4mph. If you do you do this every day, or at least 3 times a week, you should begin to feel improvement to your physical and mental wellbeing.
A treadmill is a great way to get your daily dose of walking exercise, particularly if the weather is bad and preventing you from continuing your fitness programme outdoors.
Taking up something as simple as walking could be the beginning of a new life of increased health and fitness, not only for you but for your whole family. Your mind as well as your body will benefit and you will feel the blues wash away. So don’t make any excuses, start today, it really works; for everyone.
