Walking 5 to 6 times a week is one of the best ways to prevent obesity and eliminate heart disease. Research shows that walkers actually shed more weight than bikers, and even rowers. Why? Because people tend to be more consistent with walking than with more demanding workouts, since it doesn’t take as much effort, and it’s free!

Also, walking improves your memory. In a study, volunteers were better at recalling a series of numbers when they were walking on a treadmill, than when they were just sitting still.
