Walking can add years to a person’s life. Researchers have found that walking approximately 30 minutes a day can help slow the aging process and even reconstruct DNA molecules that have grown old.
Additionally, research suggests that short walks can have a positive impact on mood, curbing aggressive behavior and irritability, which are often outward expressions of depression. Even walking a short distance, such as getting off the subway a block or two early and walking the rest of the way, can help fight off depression.
