Most people lack physical activity which can cause some serious health issues. Spending the day sitting and laying around will not contribute to your health in a good way. There are various physical activities which are commonly used by people in order to stay fit and keep their bones and muscles strong.
Walking is the most common of them all and the easiest exercise a person can do. It is a simple exercise with which anyone can get a healthy life but it’s often ignored.
Everyone can find 15 minutes a day on doing some physical activity as simple as walking in order to improve their health. Researchers at a French University pf Lyon conducted a study regarding how being physically active for 15-20 minutes a day can grant you a longer life.
The participants in the study were people older than 60 and all of them did 15 minutes of exercises on a daily basis, and this led to a decreased risk of death by 22%. What this basically means is that even a 15-minute walk every day can help you live longer.
Doctors always recommend their patents to be more physically active for a minimum of 150 minutes every week.
Walking every day also leads to other health benefits such as:
-Boosts your vitamin D level
-Improves your mood
-It can help prevent lung cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer
So why don’t you get off the computer and take a walk around the neighborhood!
