The human body is made to move, but in today's world, we don't do nearly enough of it: As many as 50 million Americans, according to one count, are living sedentary lives.
But the simple act of walking is great for your health; research has linked it to a host of benefits, from a healthier weight to reduced fatigue to relief from stress and mild depression symptoms.
At the same time, the link between inactivity and chronic health problems has been firmly established. A sedentary lifestyle has been associated with lower life expectancy, slower metabolism, and increased risk of heart attack.
