The wonder of walking

STEP OUT: Short stroll to a longer life.

TAKING a short stroll in the fresh air can help you live longer.

Older people who take a 15 minute walk four times a week can reduce the risk of an early death by 40 per cent, according to Italian researchers. They monitored more than 200 residents of an elderly people’s home for ten years noting their lifestyle and habits.

Those who walked regularly were also less likely to be depressed and had better health.
