10 Things That Happen to Your Body If You Walk Every Day

Posted on

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 iraxis 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.

1. Positive brain changes

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.

2. Improved eyesight

Even though eyes might seem like the last thing to be connected with the legs, walking actually benefits their health too. It may even help to fight glaucoma by relieving eye pressure.
