  • supports weight loss and weight maintenance.
  • reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke.
  • fends off diabetes by improving the body's ability to use insulin.
  • eases the pain and stiffness associated with arthritis.
  • helps reduce the risk of many cancers.
  • helps to improve sleep.
  • builds strength, flexibility and stamina.
  • greatly reduces anxiety.
  • is just as effective in fighting depression as Zoloft.
  • increases blood flow, which makes the brain function at a higher level.

In addition...

  • If sitting in front of a computer is replaced by walking at only 1 mph, an average person would increase their calorie burn by 100 calories per hour, according to a study conducted at the Mayo Clinic. 
  • Based on a study at the Mayo Clinic in 2007, if office workers are given the opportunity to walk while they work, the majority would rather walk than sit.
