As many of you may already know, at TeamPuli we believe that exercise can work wonders if you’re keen to stay healthy and prevent illness. However, you don’t have to jump into it with a weeks-long exercise programme and a diet that covers every meal – it’s enough to start with the smallest steps to get into the habit of regular exercise.
The easiest way to do this is walking, which you can start practically anytime and anywhere. What’s more, it has a number of benefits that can make you want to do it even more. Walking, for example, is a great way to improve your mental health, so if you’re going through a stressful time, it’s worth exploring your local area, whether it’s a short or long walk.
It may come as a surprise at first, but walking can also improve our eyesight by reducing eye pressure and helping us to fight off dangerous glaucoma later in life. In addition, if done regularly, it can effectively improve your circulation and help you to lower your high blood pressure or cholesterol levels.
Regular walking can also help prevent diabetes, increase lung capacity to avoid many organ problems and improve digestion. And the icing on the cake is that it makes our bones stronger, reduces our weight and develops our muscles.
And one of the most positive effects of walking is that it is a great way to treat depressive symptoms and can make you feel much better. The latter is especially true when you can do it in a great group, although nowadays you can have a lot of fun on your own, for example listening to podcasts or a brand new album. Of course, you can also take part in a more informal meeting while you’re walking, and if you want to compete with your colleagues, TeamPuli is the ideal solution.
