Benefits of Walking for Senior Health

Walking is an excellent exercise for people of all ages. Walking is a great way to relieve stress, improve cardiovascular health, and increase muscle strength from small children to older adults. Because walking has a lower impact on joints than other forms of cardio exercise, seniors can continue walking for longer, only increasing health benefits. Additionally, walking has been shown to have the following benefits:

  • Help seniors maintain a healthy weight
  • Lower the risk of chronic illness, including heart disease, colon cancer, and diabetes
  • Reduce blood pressure, even for people with hypertension
  • Improve balance and coordination
  • Decrease the risk of a fall
  • Increase energy levels
  • Increase mobility and keep joints flexible
  • Reduce feelings of anxiety or depression
  • Prevent osteoporosis and osteoarthritis
  • Create social connections through walking groups
