Aerobic exercises help in lowering blood pressure. A recent study showed that high blood pressure patients who walked for at least 30 minutes each day for a week had a higher mortality rate than those who didn’t.

 3. Strengthens muscles

Walking not only strengthens the engaged muscles, it also increases bone density and musclemass. Regular walking also increases muscle endurance overtime.

 4. Improves sleep

It has been proven through research that people who walked on a daily basis (or did more physical activity) enjoyed a better quality of sleep.

 5. Prevents type 2 diabetes

Walking is an aerobic exercise. This means that excess glucose in the blood is burned during the workout. As a result, there is less demand for insulin.
