Our movement tidbit this month is something that is pretty simple for most people, almost everyone can do it, and it is free of charge. I bet you guessed it! I am talking about walking.
When we walk, especially on thin soled shoes, the vibration of the blow helps to lay down new bone. So, walking can be a means to combat osteoarthritis. Walking (or any form of continuous movement) can also help improve digestion. We digest our food better when we have a regular movement routine.
A brisk walk daily can help control blood pressure, weight, and risk of stroke in most individuals. Walking outdoors will help lift your mood and sense of well being, lower stress levels, and improve your sleep.
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s go for a walk!
