It is said that walking is man’s best medicine. We can walk anywhere at anytime on our streets, on a treadmill, at work, or during a hike. Walking is a great way to get in shape without breaking the bank. It’s free, so why not do it everyday? Besides the obvious walking is good for weight loss and to reduce physical risks, walking is also healthy for mental health. From a psychological viewpoint, walking can be an opportunity to clarify thoughts, to solve problems and to reduce stress. If you find a rhythm that is relaxing and peaceful, walking can also become a form of meditation.
