Studies show that taking a brisk walk regularly can help reduce anxiety by increasing dopamine and serotonin production in your brain. Not only will walking help calm your nerves, but a regular stroll can also help cut your risk of heart disease. Those who are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes should also start stepping, as walking can cut that risk by 60 percent!*
