    Definitely any walking is better then no walking, we believe if people can change just little habits to add a few more extra of minutes of walking a day they will benefit immensely

    @4:12 man in a power chair. No one should be excluded from walking. It's enjoyable, strengthening, and emotionally healthy. I have used an exoskeleton and it feels amazing! Someone that is paralyzed from the waist down walking?? Yeah, it's incredible! Everyone should have the opportunity! 😀

    If you want to add seven years to your lifespan, set aside 20 to 25 minutes for a daily walk. This simple habit, which can also arguably be one of the most enjoyable parts of your day, has been found to trigger an anti-aging process and even help repair old DNA.

    The research, presented at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress, followed 69 people between the ages of 30 and 60. Those who engaged in daily moderate exercise, such as a brisk walk or jog, high-intensity interval training (HIIT), and strength training experienced anti-aging benefits that could add an additional three to seven years to your life.1

    Walking in the mall is a good idea. I know it became the morning thing back in the 80's. It's good since you are in a climate controlled environment, safe, close to restrooms and can grab a healthy bite or drink while you exercise. Plus, like in the dark winter months, you can walk when it gets dark outside — inside!

    Dougal Mackinnon, MD, PhD: Walking is the best exercise that we know. Walking helps us to maintain health, it helps as a preventative for certain illnesses and diseases……

    Melissa Michaluk, D.O.: When I have acquaintances that ask me, “What do I do, I'm pre-diabetic,” “My blood sugars are high,” “I noticed my cholesterol to be high,” my first recommendation to them is, “Go out for a walk every day.”

    John Arden, PhD: We didn't evolve to sit around on chairs all day and watch TV or sit around and talk with one another.

    Dougal Mackinnon, MD, PhD: Walking benefits the cardiovascular system for one; (CAPTION: Heart Health) it helps keep your heart strong, helps keep your rhythm of the heart strong……

    Paul Fuller, MD: Certainly, it's going to help you with muscle tone; it's going to help you with maintaining an appropriate weight. (CAPTION: Weight)

    Lynn Kosteki, MD: Patients who may be prone to developing dementia do better in terms of their memory the more physically fit they stay. So, getting involved in a walking group (CAPTION: memory) tends to help diminish those effects.

    Dougal Mackinnon, MD, PhD: Walking makes us engage in (CAPTION: respiratory health) moving the lungs in and out so we keep our respiratory capacity. People who have respiratory illnesses, for example……Walking is perfect. Walking allows in the exercise to get their heart rate stimulated, get blood flow increased to the legs, to the arms, to the brain, and maintains their respiratory status so they don't have to be on oxygen.

    John Arden, PhD: Most antidepressants (CAPTION: depression) take roughly about four weeks to work. A better quick fix is walking briskly. Walking vigorously is an immediate antidepressant.
    Everybody that I see that are either depressed or anxious, I get them walking.

    Dougal Mackinnon, MD, PhD: It's a well-known fact that (CAPTION: bone health) weight bearing and walking helps women maintain calcium in their bones and maintains the strength of the bones.

    Paul Fuller, MD: Many of my patients are coming to me looking for hormonal therapy or pharmacological treatments for osteoporosis, and although pharmacology has a key component, but even more important component is walking, and especially load bearing exercises. What I emphasize to them more than anything else, if you're going to do anything, at least walk down a flight of stairs as much as you can.

    Dougal Mackinnon, MD, PhD: That especially is important in older people where you can have easy fractures from a fall; simple walking pattern can prevent that by almost 35 to 40 percent.
    Walking in general is also a way to interact with each other. I mean, I see a lot of walking groups, see walking groups at lunch time, I see walking groups in the mall; (CAPTION: community) so, it's not just a way of physical maintenance of good health, it's also a way of interacting with other people. It's a way of community.

    John Arden, PhD: It becomes part of your life and your spice it in wherever you can, like parking your car way out at the end of the parking lot: why park right next to the building?

    Melissa Michaluk, D.O.: I never run and do a task, I don't swim to go pick something up, but I always walk across the street to get something or walk half a mile to get a task done. (CAPTION: functional) And I think that's the important thing about walking, is that could be exercise and it can be functional as well.

    John Arden, PhD: Every little bit of exercise can be a cumulative kind of effect.

    Dougal Mackinnon, MD, PhD: (CAPTION: 30 minutes per day) Time is important: 20 to 30 minutes a day of walking is good, and it doesn't have to be strenuous walking. So, there's a lot of good benefits from walking, that can be social, it can be physical, and it can help lead to a better lifestyle and less need for medical interventions.

    Lynn Kosteki, MD: All the benefits it has……take advantage of that. It's one of the easiest things that you can do to have the multitude of benefits on your health.

    John Arden, PhD: It shouldn't be based on convenience; it should be considered a staple part of your life.

    Dougal Mackinnon, MD, PhD: It continues to be the best medicine we have. There's no pill that can give you what walking can give.

    Walking is great for those that have anxiety and depression , walking releases the feel good endorphins like serotonin and dopamine and lowers the bad chemicals like cortisol and adrenaline , 30 mins a day (that's it) but must be a brisk walk not a lazy dog walk for 30 mins
