Mental Benefits of Walking
It’s obvious that walking has physical benefits, but there are mental benefits of walking too. For someone who walks regularly, their body is better able to deliver oxygen to all systems, including the brain, because they’ve improved their cardiovascular function. Not surprisingly, regular walkers report better mental clarity and ability to focus.
Creativity is enhanced because walkers have the ability to relax their mind and let it wander around while they’re walking. Outdoor strollers can have the benefit of beautiful scenery as well as just seeing things from a different perspective, which stimulates creative thought and the imagination.
Whether you want to improve your body, your mind or both, the benefits of walking should encourage you to make the time to do it.
