The longest-lived people in the world do not necessarily spend their lives doing strenuous exercise in a gym. Instead, they move naturally (which is a Blue Zones Power 9 principle) through daily activities like gardening or walking. Walking has many benefits.
A study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that those who adhered to a walking program showed significant improvements in blood pressure, slowing of resting heart rate, reduction of body fat and body weight, reduced cholesterol, and increased measures of endurance. Boost your well-being with Blue Zones Project’s community walking challenge.
