It is known that the regular exercising has an enormous impact on the emotional, physical and mental health. Even though it has numerous benefits, there are days when we cannot find time to do the workout.
Fortunately, some recent studies have shown that 15 minutes of walking on a daily basis can add 7 years to our life. A study examined 95 participants at the age of 30 – 60 years old, and has found out that those who did some exercise, like walking, noticed some anti-aging properties.
Therefore, if you do not have enough time to do the regular workout, take a 15-minute walking in order to gain the same benefits.
