Five reasons to go for morning walks (daily)

What if we told you that walking thirty minutes every morning can significantly reduce your risk of developing most lifestyle-induced diseases?

Yes, you heard that right - a simple morning walk routine is literally a boon for your physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Here are five amazing health benefits of morning walks.

1. Morning walk will keep you energized the whole day

Walking, first thing in the morning, actually helps restart your body from the night's rest phase.

It hikes your heart rate, increases pulse rate, makes you perspire, and wakes up your muscles. Additionally, morning walks also improve circulation and hormone balance in your body.

All this makes you alert, improves your mood, and keeps you energized for the day to come.

2. Morning walks are great for your cardiovascular well-being

Heart diseases affect as much as 40% of the world's population.

It is common knowledge that staying physically active is the best way to avoid heart problems.

Know that morning walks can help. In fact, studies have shown that regular walking at a brisk pace, covering 4-6 kilometers on average, can decrease the risk of developing heart diseases by an impressive 40%.

3. Morning walk can strengthen your bones & joints

Studies have shown that walking helps reduce risk of orthopedic problems like osteoporosis and arthritis by making your bones and joints stronger.

Walking is easier on one's joints than higher-impact activities like running or aerobics, and is thus more suited for people on the higher end of the age spectrum.

Furthermore, it helps muscle development and reduces risk of back pain and hip fractures.

4. For improved mood, go out and take a walk

A lot of people opt for unhealthy ways to improve their mood, but a simple morning walk could might as well be the answer.

Research shows that taking regular walks helps decrease hostility and anger.

Additionally, if you make walking a social activity by inviting closed ones, it helps in enhancing your mood.

Walking is also recommended for people suffering from depression and anxiety.

5. Morning walks can help you get in shape

If you are trying to lose weight, a walk in the morning is the best way to complement your regular fat-burn workout and diet regime.

Though not as productive as running, walking is still a great, slow-and-steady way to shed those extra kilos.

So, say yes to morning walks if you want to lose weight in a healthy manner.
