The benefits of daily walking

Go for a daily walk - running

Take a deep breath - we are outside and walk a bit. We could have done this by car, but a walk is all the better for us. Whether it's a brisk walk along the paths of the forest or a leisurely stroll along the sidewalks of the city, a stroll through the park or a stroll around the block, exercise in the fresh air is important for our health, mood and general well-being of body and mind. Plus you discover paths and places that you wouldn't otherwise reach. Life happens outside, come on, let's go for a walk a little or better every day.

Light exercise with great benefits

A daily walk in the fresh air is also good for the body. You get your body moving without putting too much strain on it. Even moderate activity gets the circulation and metabolism going. If you romp around outside, you strengthen your immune system and thus prevent illness. The often quoted 7,000 steps a day protect against strokes and heart attacks, burn fat and train the muscles to boot. This makes us wonder why not everyone walks everywhere and at all times.

Going for a run outside for fresh vitamin D

Don't you get the same exercise indoors? Sure, you can be active under a roof, but a daily walk outside has other benefits too. When you walk in the open air, you let the sun shine over you. When the sun's rays hit your skin, your body starts producing vitamin D. The amount of course depends on the amount of UV radiation. That's why we recommend taking more walks, especially in the cold season, to get enough vitamin D. As you can imagine, too much sun during a hot summer can quickly be too much of a good thing. Nevertheless, your goal should always be to take a few steps outside every day and let the sun shine on you.

Put one foot in front of the other without stress

It's not just your body that will thank you, your mind will also enjoy a walk. Exploring forests, fields or alleyways is an effective way to prevent depression and increase creativity and well-being. Just half an hour of physical exercise in nature can noticeably reduce stress hormones and boost your mental state. A short walk during your lunch break is enough to leave work behind and let your mind wander. Step by step, you can say goodbye to stress, because if you are out and about a lot, you see a lot.

The positive effects of a walk

Walking is probably the easiest and most accessible form of physical activity, bringing numerous health benefits with every step. Here are the reasons why a daily walk and a few minutes in the fresh air are good for you.

  • Strengthens the cardiovascular system
  • Promotes blood circulation
  • Reduces the risk of heart disease
  • Helps control weight and prevent obesity
  • Walking can reduce stress
  • Improves mood and alleviates symptoms of depression
  • Sun rays on the skin provide vitamin D
  • The light exercise strengthens the joints
  • The social component of walking together is also not to be sneezed at.

Walking in the fresh air is a good idea at any age

You're only as old as you feel, and walkers feel lively. Daily exercise in the form of walking, Nordic walking and jogging is essential for good health. This applies equally to children, adults and senior citizens. People of all ages benefit from the physical and mental advantages of walking. While older people stabilize their balance, cardiovascular system and coordination and reduce illness, children use their time in the fresh air to get really active and discover the world. As an adult, a walk in the fresh air is good for both your health and your mind.

Take a walk and simply live healthily

Walking outside may not be the best way to build muscle or burn calories. But for a fit body and a certain level of stamina, a walk is always advisable. Even if you get your exercise from the gym or strength training, a leisurely walk is an effective addition to a healthy lifestyle. And look, there's a beaver feeding, there's a flea market over there and after half an hour's walking we come to a beautiful corner - so it was a good decision to go for a walk and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.
