Have you ever heard the saying by Hippocrates, “Walking is a man’s best medicine?” We’d go further by stating that walking combined with good sleep and a healthy diet can help you avoid the doctor altogether. As little as 15-30 minutes of walking every day can drastically improve not only a person’s overall appearance, but health as well.
We at Bright Side were astonished to find out that good old walking is a single practice which could significantly benefit the whole body and mind. It’s free, easy and requires little effort.
We’ve created a list of benefits you can literally walk yourself into.

As a study reveals, low impact aerobic exercises, like walking, prevent early dementia, reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, and improve overall mental health. Not to mention reducing mental stress and maintaining a higher level of endorphins.
