Walking is often taken for granted. For something so simple there are so many benefits. Whether you casually stroll along or hike up to a mountain peak it lifts your spirits and lowers your weight. Some studies have even proven that for every hour you walk you can add at least an hour on to your life. But more important than the quantity of years is the quality of life. Each step you take is a step towards your personal wellness. Especially in times of crisis it is a form of self care that you can do every day.
