See 10 Things That Happen To Your Body when You Walk Every Day

1.Brain changes for the better

There is a huge study done showing the results of walking on the brain. According to the study, endorphins increase and stress levels become significantly lowered. Lower impact exercises like walking also assist in the entire brain health and even reduce steadily the percentage of Alzheimer’s and dementia.

2.Enhanced vision

It may sound fishy, but apparently walking every day can benefit the eyes as well. Walking improves some eye pressure thus reducing glaucoma in some cases.

3.Keeping the heart strong

Heart of Compassion

Walking is just as useful as running according to the American Heart Association. It can help in avoiding heart related issues like strokes or other heart related issues. It improves circulation, reduction in cholesterol and can stabilize blood pressure.

4.Larger lungs

Besides eliminating toxins in the body, walking improves the lungs by coaching them to have more oxygen flowing throughout the body. This can greatly impact lung function for the prevention in lung diseases.

5.Improving the pancreas

A study was done that showed people who only walked had better glucose levels than those who ran 6 times as much. This means that people can practically walk their way to preventing diabetes and walking is the better option over running.

6.Aiding in digestion

 

Balancing the gut for better gut health is vital to prevent colon cancers and other problems like flatulence and constipation. Walking can help normalize the colon by keeping the colon literally moving.

7.Leaner muscles

 

When a person loses fat in their body the muscles become more prominent and they become leaner. This can be achieved by taking 10,000 steps a day. Going uphill or adding an interval throughout the walk can increase muscle tones to different parts of the body as well. All of that can be marked as you working out at the gym for the day. Walking is much easier on the body so there is less soreness and no healing time which means more continuous walking.

8.Firm joints and bones

Feeling stiff and in pain can be hampered by walking 30 minutes everyday. Stronger joints, warding off injuries and even ruling out bone loss are great ways to keep your body healthy. The Arthritis Foundation recommends walking for a healthier and being comfortable in your own body.

9.Relieve back pain

 

Much higher impact sports or exercises can damage the back. However, lower impact exercises like walking can relieve back pain and aches by circulating the blood within the spinal area. This along with strengthening flexibility and posture can practically erase any back discomfort.

10.Balanced mind

Walking by yourself but with others can improve mood, lower stress or anxiety. It has even been known to reduce depression in people.
