Walking is an accessible exercise, appropriate for children, adults, seniors, and those with limited mobility. The health benefits of walking have been documented and confirmed through various studies and includes helping individuals shed weight, lowering blood pressure, slowing bone loss, managing cholesterol, and helping strengthen the heart. Studies have also shown that regular physical activity such as walking can help with maintaining good health and reducing the risk of getting osteoporosis, arthritis, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and other serious diseases. The benefits of walking are not limited to physical health. Better sleep, a sharper memory, and feeling energized, are just a few of the emotional benefits associated with walking.
Few exercises are as easily adaptable to the walkers preferences as walking is. Many, who take up walking, join clubs and groups and find walking buddies. Some walkers, however, prefer to enjoy the hobby as a solo effort for fitness or are interested in walking as a sport. Walking initiatives for schools, communities, workplaces, and in support of charitable causes are also popular. Getting started with walking is cheap and easy. In addition to a good pair of walking shoes, walkers can map out routes and even track their steps online. Brushing up on walking safety information and tips can ensure walking is a safe pursuit for all ages of walkers. Joining or learning about the campaigns and resources offered by various walking organizations will also help walkers stick with the activity.
