01/22/2019 - Benefits of Daily Walking & Communicating

There are multiple benefits to daily walking.  There is much 'buzz' lately about 10,000 steps, but that may not be practical for everyone.  If you are mobile and able to walk, there is definitely benefit to doing what you can. 

According to, some of the benefits are:

  • Improves the mood and battles the effects of depression
  • Gives you time to think. Daily walking can act as a form of meditation. It gives you time to mull over ideas. If you have problems at work or at home, a nice walk could help you to come up with solutions.
  • Reduces fatigue
  • Once you form the habit, it is easy to turn it into a lifestyle change. Of all the forms of fitness and exercise routines, walking has the highest compliance rate.
  • It can make you smarter. Daily walking can make you sharper and smarter and reduces the chances for long term mental disease because it helps to increase blood flow through the brain.

Since it is winter, you might want to consider walking at your local gym, indoor track, or fitness center. Many folks find walking clubs or opportunities at local malls or colleges as well.

Go enjoy a good walk - you'll be glad you did!
