Walking: the ideal step towards positive change
No matter whether you work in the office or at home, go for a 30-minute walk outside (at a set time) every day. Why?
- You burn approx. 150 kcal on a 30-minute walk.
- Walking stimulates the production of the feel-good hormone serotonin. This has a positive influence on our mood. So go for a morning walk and enjoy the benefits for the rest of the day.
- Walking reduces the risk of varicose veins.
- Walking makes you more productive and creative: your cognitive brain regains space. Are you in need of new ideas or creative solutions? Take your colleagues for a brainstorming session outdoors.
Lacking motivation? Find a walking buddy or go for a stroll with a colleague during your lunch break. A sociable way to keep each other motivated!
