Walk For Your Mind and Body

Walk for your mind and body
Monday marks World Mental Health Day, a campaign to raise awareness about mental health issues and improve our mental well-being.   One habit to boost your mental health is walking. Besides being good for your body, walking can help improve your psychological state, especially if you walk outdoors.   Walking outside, being in nature and getting out of the same place allows you to decompress, understand what’s been going on and refocus, experts say. A walk can also help clear your mind and enhance your creativity.   Tap the link to find out all the wonderful benefits of walking for your mind.
