PLEASANT ACTIVITY: Take a 30min Walk

Updated: Nov 19, 2019

Activity number 2 for my #PleasantActivity is a simple, but an ultra effective one: Walking! Walking provides a number of physical and mental benefits: ⁣

  • A daily walk of 30 minutes can cut your heart disease and stroke by 27%.⁣

  • Walking helps reduce blood glucose and insulin resistance, which helps prevent Type 2 Diabetes. ⁣

  • ⁣A happy walking style (straight posture with swinging arms) helps improve mood and recall of positive things more than a negative walking style (slumped posture with little arm movement).⁣

  • ⁣Walking can tone legs, strengthen back and abdominal muscles, and help lose unwanted weight.⁣

  • Walking outside helps increase alertness, mental clarity, and creativity.⁣

Today I had the pleasure of walking around Calamigos Ranch during a break. Being out in nature makes me appreciate just how majestic our world is, and it’s humbling to be a minuscule part of such grand beauty.⁣
