Health benefits of Walking...

Life fails to be perfect, but it never fails to be beautiful💛🌅 It is easy to become overwhelmed by the constant stresses and struggles of everyday life; rent, bills, relationships, workplace woes etc. Sometimes you need to take a step back from all the action and allow yourself to recharge🔋👍 For me, personally, this means popping in my headphones🎧 and going for a long walk, wherever my feet will carry me👣 🧠🌿


There are so many physical and mental benefits to walking such as…


🔸Reducing the risk of heart disease💗

We can spend hundreds of pounds💰 on spa retreats and personal trainers but when we have a gift like mother nature on our doorstep that doesn't cost us a penny...why would you want to?!😵 In my personal opinion, a sunset is one of the most stunning sights we can witness upon this earth 🌍 Let's make time to step away from our screens even if only for 20 minutes a day⌛and appreciate the beauty that resides all around us🙌
