Physical Health Benefits
Walking is incredibly underrated given its sheer amount of health benefits! Here are some ways walking can bolster your physical health.
Burn Calories and Lose Weight
Walking is a great way to burn extra calories and shed excess weight. Because walking increases your heart rate, it causes you to expend energy and burn calories. How many calories you burn while walking depends on the duration of your walk, the terrain on which you are walking, and your starting weight. Try to walk at for an extended period at brisk pace and slight incline to burn more calories.
Increase Energy Levels
Walking also helps you to improve and maintain your energy levels by increasing blood flow in the body. Increased blood flow helps distribute oxygen and nutrients to the muscles and, as a result, increases energy.
