What are the benefits of walking?

Walking is the most popular physical activity among adults. Taking a walk is low cost and doesn’t require any special clothes or equipment.

Walking may

  • lower your risk of health problems like high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes
  • strengthen your bones and muscles
  • help you burn more calories
  • lift your mood

Make walking fun by going to places you enjoy, like a park or shopping center. Bring along a friend or family member to chat with, or listen to some of your favorite music as you walk. Keep the volume low so that you can hear noises around you.
