A recent study found that if you walk just one hour per day, you can extend your life by 4.5 years. It doesn’t even have to be a full hour all at once, just a total of 60 minutes at day. All you need to do is walk to lunch, walk for your errands or other short trips you have during the day and you’ll be set.
Plus, we already know that transit users tend to walk more than other commuters so think about taking the bus into work a few days a week. Also, did you know that the risk of obesity increases 6% with each mile spent in the car? The good news is that your risk of obesity decreases 5% with every kilometer walked. So make it a point to get outside and walk a little more. [Source]
