Walk With Confidence – National Walking Month Tips for Managing Incontinence

May has begun, dawning in National Walking Month along with it. National Walking Month runs throughout the entirety of May, started in order to raise awareness of how walking can help you live a healthy lifestyle both physically and mentally.

You may have contemplated signing up for the gym or getting into running, which for many reasons may be impractical to you, maybe due to work life balance, or the expensive costs of memberships and equipment. This is why walking could be the perfect exercise for you.

I’m sure you may have dismissed walking as an exercise before, but you may not be aware of the enormous benefits walking a day can do for you! ActiveNation state from research “Just 11 minutes of daily activity could prevent one in 10 premature deaths.” And although it is recommended to walk 150 minutes a week just by doing half of that it “could prevent one in 20 cases of cardiovascular disease and nearly one in 30 cases of cancer.”

Not to mention walking has many benefits for both physical & mental health such as:

  • Balancing blood pressure
  • Helping blood flow reducing cardiovascular disease risks
  • Maintaining bone health
  • Weight loss
  • Aiding digestion
  • Increases blood flow to the brain which improves energy levels, decreases stress hormones, and releases endorphins
  • Reduces risk of anxiety, depression, dementia & Alzheimer’s

But the biggest benefit of all is it’s free & can be done in numerous different ways.
You may have children or grandchildren, why not walk them to school?
You may need to go to the shops, why not ditch the car and walk?
You may have a dog, why not take them out for a walk?

There are also many walking groups you can join, Ramblers allow you to find your local walking group here.
