Walking can be a great way to soothe your mind and relax and rejuvenate your body through movement. As the Mayo Clinic points out, walking can help maintain a healthy weight, manage health conditions like heart disease and high blood pressure, improve the cardiovascular system, increase energy levels, strengthen the immune system, and reduce stress and tension.
Aside from the benefits above, walking provides a way to literally change the pace of our day. If we find ourselves mentally "stuck", getting up and going for a walk can give us time to think through what is holding us up. What's more, moving our bodies can help renew our energy level and give us new motivation. If you're interested in walking, and would like to track how you do each day, check out the Fitbit Versa 2. It's a great way to keep track of your movement throughout the day along with a number of other important health monitors.
