What is all the fuss about walking exercise?

Research shows on average it takes about 20 minutes to walk around 2,000 steps.

The number of steps will vary depending on your stride and speed, but one mile tends to be about 2,000 steps.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, you should get at least 150 minutes of moderately intense physical activity like walking in per week.

Plenty of research shows walking exercise may help elevate your mood, feel more energetic and less fatigued, lose weight, lowers risk of heart disease by 8% (according to research from the University of Leicester), reduce risk of premature death by 1/3, help reduce risk of type 2 diabetes, and reduce fat in the heart, liver, and intestines.

In another study by the National Academy of Sciences showed that a daily walk can help improve spatial memory as well as lower the risk of dementia.

The key is to take in less calories than you burn off.

These benefits all increase with longer and faster walks.

Even though these benefits from walking are well researched, sometimes being motivated to do so can be frustrating.

Fact is, it is easier to motivate yourself with something tangible that you can create a clear mental picture of, than an idea of being fit.
