Discover the Unexpected: 5 Surprising Benefits of Walking

  1.     Mental Clarity and Creativity: Walking has positive influences on cognitive functions and hence allows you to think in a clear manner and be creative. Studies show that the pulsation of the feet during walking stimultes the brain helping the mind to focus, remember and solve problems. Whether you are in the city or in the nature, the act of walking gives you the freedom to think and to be creative, often making you see the world in a new way.
  2.     Stress Reduction and Mood Boost: Surprisingly, between exercise and mental health, walking makes more senses. The fact that this type of exercise involves a sequence of repetitive movements, and that it takes place outside in the middle of nature, allows for the production of endorphins (the natural defenders against feelings of anxiety). Researches have proven that walking lowers the levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, and thus, it induces a feeling of tranquility and relaxation. No matter whether you are stressed out or just need a good boost, just a short walk can really help you psychologically.
