Walking is an easy and accessible form of exercise that can combat brain ageing and memory loss.
Whether it was the easiest form of movement or a way to get some headspace, the past year has shown the benefits of walking in our day-to-day lives. Just because lockdown is easing, it doesn’t mean that the love affair with walking will end either. 60% of people say they will continue to use walking as one of their main ways of keeping fit in 2021, according to research.
While it isn’t as high intensity as other forms of cardio such as running, it is effective in its own right, and no matter how fit you are, it is extremely beneficial. Walking is particularly good for people who suffer from “knee, ankle or back problems as it can reduce pain and improve your circulation and posture.
There are a whole load of benefits you can get from walking. It can help you improve your breathing, lower your heart rate, feel happier, become more connected to your environment, and experience less pain if you struggle with pain-related health issues.
According to the NHS, adults should be doing at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity a week. Walking counts towards this weekly exercise goal, and can help you build stamina and improve cardiovascular health – but you have to make sure you’re going at a “brisk” pace.
Other experts conclude that a daily walk of at least 30 minutes is the best way to increase cardiovascular fitness, help to strengthen your bones and boost muscle endurance and power.
Practising good posture is important while walking to ensure the exercise is comfortable and efficient. That means you should keep your head up, lengthen your back, drop your neck and shoulders, and try to engage your core. You also need to make sure you swing your arms with each step to create momentum.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
