Walking might not burn as many calories as running. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't consider it a valuable form of exercise!
•.Walking can help improve fitness, help with depression and fatigue, and improve endurance, circulation, and posture!
• If you're getting back into exercise after a break or an injury, walking is low-impact, and can help build your fitness back up.
• It can be relaxing to exercise at a slower pace. You can enjoy your surroundings, or maybe listen to an audiobook or podcast.
• Walking doesn't need to be boring! If you want to take it up a level try hiking on challenging terrain, or power-walking.
