Not even ten thousand steps, even four thousand steps a day can be healthy
London: For a long time, experts have been emphasizing that walking 10,000 steps a day keeps a person healthy and aging, but now another estimate says that 4400 steps can be just as useful in this regard.
In 1965, Japanese experts said that in order to stay healthy and live a long life, it is necessary to walk 10,000 steps a day, which is equivalent to 8 kilometers. Many people practice it but it is also impossible due to fast pace of life and lack of time. Now, experts at Harvard Medical School and the University of Hertfordshire say that even walking 4,400 steps a day can reap medical benefits. But he says more than 4,400 steps increase the benefits.
Experts still consider walking to be extremely good for health and a shield against heart disease, blood pressure, diabetes and other mental illnesses. If one walks for two hours, it will be equal to ten thousand steps, but the goal of 4400 steps can be achieved in just 53 minutes. That’s why we must spend an hour a day on our health.
Lindsay Bottoms, a scientist at the University of Hartfordshire, says that in 1965 a Japanese company developed a pedometer that was sold for ten thousand steps a day. The idea became very popular, but now if these goals are not achieved, it should be made a habit to walk at least 4400 steps, which can bring many medical benefits.
If you walk less than that, the body’s metabolism does not work properly, which can increase the risk of obesity, heart disease and diabetes. Then sitting for several hours a day also increases the pressure on the body, which can increase the risk of premature death by 59%. That is why it is important to eliminate the negative effects of prolonged sleep on foot.
