Walking is a good form of exercise. It is very simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active and stay active. It is an ideal exercise which is suitable for people of all ages. But some say that walking is more than an exercise as it cures and reduces the risk of many diseases that other exercises cannot. Again, it is a free-hand exercise. So it costs nothing and needs no extra preparation. Anybody can walk anytime and make it a habit to have longer lasting benefits in body and mind. Doctors often prescribe patients for walking. This is because it strengthens heart and thus reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke. Regular walking habit also minimizes the risk of type 2 diabetes, asthma and some cancers. It also helps to lose weight which eventually ensures prevention of many diseases. Moreover, walking helps to keep our body active, energetic and fit for work and makes our mind cheerful and vigorous. Therefore, to get all these immense benefits, we should walk regularly. We can walk any time. But by walking in the early morning we can enjoy fresh air and beauty of nature and start our day with a mind full of inspiration and joy. But it is not essential to allot a time for walking. A man can form this habit by walking part of his journey to work, walking to the shop, using the stairs instead of lift, leaving the car behind for short journeys, walking the kids to school etc. There are people who, realizing the importance of this exercise, join a walking club to ensure the best result. However, for soundness of both body and mind, we all should form this simple habit and walk at least 30 minutes per day.
