Walking

I walk as I do chores in & around my home.I walk to the grocery store.I walk to the mobile recharging shop.I walk to the tailor.I walk to the temple.I walk to the mall.I even walked to the the polling booth to exercise my right of voting.

I find walking economical,compared to riding in an auto rickshaw Walking is time usefully spent..Public transport is cheaper than private & yet, it is unavailable over extremely short distances.More over for public transport ,one has to wait.It is quite a waste of time.A pair of walking shoes or slippers & one is ready to take on walking.I saw people walking barefoot in the local park.

Walking has so many health benefits.It helps heart & other cardiovascular functions.It strengthens bones & hence, is extremely beneficial for women.It leads to weight loss.It tones our arms ,bums,legs & thighs.It is like exercise for the brain.Since walking is a moderate exercise,it works like an antidepressant.So ,it makes us happy.It increases blood circulation in our body & thereby energises us.Walking decreases risks of asthama ,type 2 diabetes & some forms of cancer.

Recently a study was conducted, which reveals that walking helps in being more creative than simply sitting.So ,walk the blog ,design,novel,painting,poem,story,etal !

Walking is better than going to gym  and or running.Walking is not prone to injuries unlike running or exercising in the gym.

Come to think of it,my walking on all these days, helped me, reach till this day, of the A to Z Blogging Challenge !

This is my blog post for "W " of the A to Z Blogging Challenge.
