Advantages of Walking

"It engages your buttocks with the world
It modestly reduces fat
It improves glycemic control, especially after meals
It improves triglyceride levels and lowers blood pressure, especially after meals
It might help you live longer if you do it briskly
It is well tolerated by people with arthritis
It is good for your brain
It reduces stress
It boosts immune function
It helps prevent falls in the elderly
It gives you a chance to think
It can be a kind of meditation
It is in your blood, in your genes
It enables recognition of the felt presence of immediate experience."
-  Mark Sisson, Reasons to Walk this Year, 2014

"Sharpen your brain
Strengthen your bones
Boost your mood
Enhance your circulation
Reduce your risk of slipping and falling with age
Bolster your memory
Lessen the pain of conditions like arthritis or fibromyalgia
Improve your blood glucose levels
Raise your immunity
Improve your sleep
-  Jessica Smith, Amazing Benefits of Walking, 2016
