Wellness Worthwhile - Walking Works!

Each month, Sand and Sea Salon and Spa Director, Sally Hickerson, gives us a wellness tip to live by! This month, Sally tells us all about walking and why you should walk daily.

You might be surprised by just how many ways walking increases your wellbeing. If you’ve ever gone out for a walk in a huff and come back feeling more calm and collected, you know firsthand that walking can help reduce stress. Studies confirm that walking benefits your mood — and may even ward off depression as well as an antidepressant does! Walking may give you a mood boost by releasing your body’s natural happy drugs — endorphins. In terms of the physical benefits, regular walkers have fewer heart attacks and strokes, lower blood pressure and higher levels of HDL (healthy cholesterol) than non-exercisers. And the reason is simple. Daily physical activity — including walking — can lower blood pressure and LDL, decrease the risk of many types of cancer and improve immune system function. Plus, it improves quality of sleep and keeps you energized. Yet another amazing perk: For every hour a person walks, he or she adds an hour to her life. To your health!
