New Year's Resolutions? Walking!

article written by

As the new year begins, it's the perfect time to set healthy and achievable resolutions. Walking, a simple and accessible activity, offers numerous health and well-being benefits. At WeWard, we recognize the importance of walking not just as a form of exercise, but also as a means to improve mental health, strengthen social bonds, and positively contribute to the environment. Here are five walking-focused resolutions to start the year off on the right foot.

Daily walking for mental health

Commit to a daily walk, regardless of the weather. Regular walking has been proven to reduce stress and improve mood through the release of endorphins. Dr. Francisco Lopez-Jimenez, a Mayo Clinic cardiologist said:

"There is no magic number of steps per day that people should strive for because everyone is different. What matters most, he says, is that people are moving."

Local discovery and exploration on foot

Resolve to explore your city or neighborhood on foot. Walking is a great way to see things from a new perspective, meet people, and discover hidden spots. It also fosters a sense of belonging and connection to your local environment.

Join a walking group or organize walks with friends or family members. These activities strengthen social bonds and provide additional motivation to stay active. Walking in groups can transform a solitary activity into a rich social experience!

Walking to support charitable causes and reducing carbon footprint

Set a goal to participate in organized walks to support charitable causes. This allows you to stay active while contributing to society. WeWard encourages such initiatives, focusing on health, sports, education, and ecology.

Commit to replacing short car trips with walking. Not only is this good for health, but it also helps reduce the carbon footprint. On average, WeWard increases its users' walking time by 24%, contributing to saving more than 600,000 tons of CO2!

Adopting walking-centered resolutions is an excellent way to improve your physical and mental health, strengthen community ties, and positively contribute to the environment. With WeWard, walking becomes not just a way to stay fit, but also a path to a healthier and more committed lifestyle. Embrace these resolutions and make walking an integral part of your daily life in 202!
