Walking is easy to do, and offers wonderful health benefits for young and old. It’s a fun activity that you can do alone or with your friends and family.
So if you want to get in shape and lose weight, brisk walking is a low impact way to lower your BMI and reduce your waist size … especially while doing your TLC-Program.
So while you are walking and maybe counting your steps you will be …
- Burning calories
- Strengthening your heart
- Lowering your blood sugar
- Easing joint pain
- Boosting your energy
- Improving your mood
- Boosting your immune function
- Toning your legs
- Extending your life
- Improving your sleep quality
- Reducing stress
10 000 steps has been suggested as a daily goal, which adds up to about eight kilometres — a number that is commonly associated with a basic level of fitness.
Another way of looking at it is as a guideline of 150 minutes of moderate-to vigorous-intensity physical activity a week, with each bout of activity lasting at least 10 minutes.
The idea is to make daily physical activity a habit and part of your lifestyle.
On the other hand, being sedentary and sitting for too long can increase your risk of all sorts of health problems, including type 2 diabetes, cancer and heart disease.
Its as simple as downloading one of the many Step counting apps on your phone to get started.
