2. Aids Weight Loss
Walking can help you lose weight and is overall a great exercise for your whole body. American researchers conducted a study wherein patients who were obese were instructed to walk together in what is known as a walking bus. They were instructed to walk together to get to their respective destinations across the city rather than driving.
After only eight weeks, over half of the participants lost weight — averaging out at five pounds per person. With such promising results, it could be a good idea to give your car a rest and walk to any nearby destinations. Not only will you lose weight, but you’ll also save money on the gas that you would have otherwise consumed by driving to your destinations.
Usually, when something can both make you healthier and save you money, going for it is a no-brainer. The bottom line is that walking will lighten your results on the scale and keep your wallet full.
