If you have not started walking yet, let me give you a list of some of the benefits of taking a walk that I found. These are great stats.

Just 2 hours of walking a week can reduce your risk of stroke by 30%.

40 minutes 3 times a week protects the brain region associated with planning and memory.

30 minutes a day can reduce symptoms of depression by 36%.

Logging 3,500 steps a day lowers your risk of diabetes by 29%.

75 minutes a week of brisk walking can add almost 2 years to your life.

A daily 1-hour walk can cut your risk of obesity in half.

4 hours a week can reduce the risk of hip fractures by up to 43%.

30 to 60 minutes most days of the week drastically lowers your risk of heart disease.

Improve your day and your life by putting one foot in front of the other.
