Walking is aerobic exercise; it is also the ‘superfood’ of exercise.
Most of us do it every day to varying degrees, and many of us do not fully appreciate the many proven benefits for the body and mind that you can get simply by taking regular walks.
Author Russ Williams – a UK based broadcaster – has been a walker for many years and noticed a distinct upturn in his physical and mental health as a result of walking regularly.
He researched and subsequently wrote this book to help people fully understand why walking is such an important way of exercising and to understand the many proven benefits of doing it for the mind and body.
In his audiobook he shares the medical evidence and why you can reap the benefits without taking a big chunk out of your daily life and routine.
