How 21-Minute Walks Can Greatly Impact Your Health

Living Well Podcast by Jefferson Health

Nov 10 2022 • 20 mins

Some might not consider walking to be a legitimate form of exercise. Dr. Christine Marschilok, a sports medicine specialist, is not one of those people. In this episode, hear about the many health benefits, both physical and mental, associated with a short stroll every day. Dr. Marschilok discusses the recent report conducted by Harvard Medical School which analyzed data on the health benefits of walking and concluded walking just 21 minutes per day can reduce your risk of heart disease by 30%.

Dr. Marschilok also discusses the “Hot Girl Walk” a fitness trend made viral on TikTok and created by Mia Lind. The concept is accessible and simple - walk every day, focus on your goals, feelings of gratitude and positive self-image.

This episode was recorded live in Washington Square Park in Philadelphia and just happens to be 21 minutes long. We’re challenging you to lace up your sneakers and listen to this episode while getting your own walk in!
