Yes, walking is my favorite exercise. Walking for mental and emotional health is best free therapy. I can literally walk everyday and not get tired or bored. Not only do I walk to keep my heart healthy, maintain my weight, and for energy, but its the most important part of me keeping my mental health in check.
If I have a bad day at the office, stressing trying to keep three kids, a husband, and household running, or trying to figure something out I literally say I need to go for a walk. Walking is a great exercise you can do for creating and stabilizing your mental health.
Walking reduces stress, anxiety, and depression. When walking you’re able to dissect negative emotions, feelings, and thoughts. Figure out and understand why certain feelings and emotions occurred. Walking to clear your head is therapy for your mind, body, and soul. You can literally speak aloud your thoughts, release them, and come to solution.
Walking for mental health increases self esteem, mood, and good sleep. When we go for a walk we release tensions and toxins that is making us have sleepless and restless nights. Another great benefit of walking is it improves our sense of self, mind, and awareness. Walking is free and the most effective exercise you can do.
