Walking is considered one of the best and easiest forms of exercise. Whether your intention is to reduce weight or to maintain your health in today’s sedentary lifestyle, walking is the best option available. At CERAland we always encourage people to be more active and realize that walking is the best place to start. Here are some great benefits of late fall walking.
Everyone Can Do It- Walking is a great equalizer amongst exercises. A child can do it, an adult can do it, elderly people can do it, and even some people suffering some illnesses can do it. You don’t have to spend money on it, and you don’t need to purchase any extra equipment aside from a sturdy pair of walking shoes. Essentially, walking, for all its benefits, demands nothing but commitment from you.
Great For Your Mood- Walking is a gentle form of exercise that can uplift your mood. This is especially true during the fall when you can easily pick a scenic route and slow down whenever you want to appreciate the late fall foliage. In fact, many experts recommend that you take a walk when your productivity is slowing down and you’re stuck on a problem.
The Benefits of Being Outside –One of the primary benefits of walking is that it’s an outdoor exercise. This means that you’re not sweating it out inside a gym, but out in the sun, soaking up some much needed vitamin D. Unlike summer and winter, when walking outdoors might not be the most comfortable prospect, fall weather is perfect for it. The air is cool and the exercise will warm you up enough to enjoy your walk through the foliage.
Great for Your Heart-Experts say that 2 hours worth of walking daily can reduce the risk of heart disease by 9%. Along with the general elevation in your mood, the exercise will only add to your overall health. And if you need to lose weight, you can always alternate between walking and short bursts of jogging. That’s actually a very effective way to exercise.
