Benefits of Taking a Walk During Lunch

Submitted by Sarpong Adjei on Tue, 01/27/2015 - 11:41pm.

Most of us use our lunch break as a time to eat and take a break from the work day. However, recent research suggests talking a walk during your lunch break might be beneficial to your health. Researchers at University of Birmingham and other universities found that a simple lunchtime walk can immediately keep one’s mood positive and provide them with the ability to handle stress. It also decreases depression, lower perceived stress and improves one’s overall well being. I’m sure we can all agree that walking is a good form of exercise and has many positive physical, emotional and psychological effects. Will you take more walks on your lunch break now?
