Immunity is stronger
Just 20 to 30 minutes of walking each day makes you 30 per cent less likely to pick up respiratory infections such as the common cold, say UK researchers. It’s thought that walking helps the body flush bacteria out of the lungs and airways, which reduces the chances of getting airborne illnesses.
Walking also causes white blood cells (the body’s disease fighters) to circulate more rapidly and detect illness earlier, helping to boost your immunity further. So for 2019, make a resolution to add walking to your list of daily routine to keep slimmer and healthier!
