Clear Water Outdoor Health and Wellness Benefits Are Just A Short Walk Away
 Posted By: Clear Water Outdoor Store

Walking can help you reach impressive health goals in 3 mph or less.


It is no secret that it takes a good amount of dedication and hard work to jump start a rigorous fitness plan and get back into a routine of healthy habits and wellness. Whether you are looking to get back into the habit of working out in 2012, you are following through on a fitness-driven New Year's Resolution or you simply want to feel healthier during your day-to-day routine, there is never a bad time to start a health and wellness plan for yourself.
 
Luckily, thanks to many studies completed by Australian researchers, many doctors now believe that an improved health and lifestyle may not require the kind of rigorous workouts and drastic diet changes that many people fear. Instead, with a walking speed of as little as 3 miles per hour, studies are showing that you could be well on the path to better health, and therefore, essentially outrun the grim reaper well into your senior years.
 
 
The team of researchers in the study, based at Concord Hospital in Sydney, followed more than 1,700 older men for five years, studying the walking speeds of those who had passed away and those who had not. The men were timed as they walked nearly 20 feet at a normal walking pace and, during the five years that the men were followed, 266 eventually passed away. Overall, the men who had passed had a walking pace that was slower than those who survived, leading the researchers to determine that people need to walk at least 3 miles per hour if they want to outrun death.
 
However, walking at least 3 miles per hour is not only a benefit for the health and wellness of your body, but it also means great things for your productivity and daily tasks.
 
For instance, improved physical health not only leads to the health and wellness benefits that come with an active lifestyle, but adding regular fitness and exercise into your daily routine has also been shown to increase the production of endorphins?our brain's "feel good" chemicals which boost our mood and increase positivity.
 
With the increasing amount of praise and research that is surrounding outdoor fitness activities and personal health and wellness, it is easy to see why daily physical activity can make a huge difference to your mind and body, even when it is involving a walking speed of just 3 miles per hour. After all, with the unrelenting pressures on people today, between work, school, family and personal relationships, improving your health and wellness is a true win-win for everyone involved.
