Facts About Walking

Brisk walking is the most inexpensive exercise affordable to all. Brisk walking is the easiest healthy way to burn your extra fat. This is a light exercise which even the elderly people can do.

A brisk walk is a mild exercise which benefits the whole body. This mild exercise makes you to breathe fully and deeply and fills you with energy and a sense of well being. In this mild exercise the oxygen intake is increased to burn the glucose fully which is called oxidation. Any mild to moderate activity makes the body release a chemical called endorphin which has morphine like quality making you feel good.

A kilogram of body fat contains approximately 7000 calories. Conversely if you spend 7000 calories you lose a kilo of weight. Regular brisk walking is the exercise for the whole body resulting in improved metabolism and normalization of blood sugar levels. Another significant point is that walking burns up fat instead of proteins.

Another significant benefit is that walking reduces effectively the stubborn abdominal fat around the internal organs near stomach. Regular brisk walking coupled with high fiber low fat diet can work wonders for your weight loss program. Walking is also beneficial for diabetes and blood pressure.

For my walks,I chose a solitary path seldom used by people through green fields and farms and I became one with nature. Suddenly I started to notice fresh flowers in the bushes moist with dew and the chirping birds all around me. This was a new experience to me as I saw beauty everywhere,which I did not notice during my working days. This was almost a satisfying spiritual experience filling me with inner peace which I lacked earlier. I came home invigorated,refreshed and happy.

After one month I could notice the change in me. My weight reduced marginally and I felt more energetic and brisk. I found to my surprise that there were additional benefits too,other than weight loss.

There are many health benefits you get from walking. Walking improves sleep. It increases the stamina. It also fights depression and anxiety. It enhances the ‘feel good’ factor and improves the quality of life. Walking can be undertaken before or after meals. Before meals it suppresses appetite and after meals it helps digestion.
