Walking and running generally require the same range of motion, except walking saves your bones and joints from hard impact. Walking can also help grow your brain, according to a study published by the National Academy of Sciences. In the study, participants who took 40-minute walks, three times a week, for one year, grew their hippocampi by 2%, reversing the brain’s aging process by almost 2 years!*
Start a 15-minute walking routine around your neighborhood, and add 5 or 10 minutes as you feel stronger. Be sure to wear supportive shoes, dress comfortably and hydrate before and after your walks.
