A 2-minute walk after eating is enough to keep the body healthy. Researchers have found such information in some recent studies.
A study by The Journal Sports Medicine showed that instead of sitting down after a meal, a light walk of 2 to 5 minutes is much more effective for the body.
In this regard, Aidan Buffet, co-author of the Department of Physical Education and Sports Science at the University of Limerick in Ireland, said that not only a 2-minute light walk, but also standing after a meal is very useful.
A meta-analysis published in February analyzed seven studies comparing the effects of sitting, standing and walking on the body’s insulin and blood sugar levels.
People in the study asked to stand or walk for two to five minutes every 20 to 30 minutes throughout the day.
Among the seven studies reviewed, observation time about 28 minutes, Aidan Buff said. These 28 minutes are interspersed with standing and light walking. This 2 to 5 minute daily habit can change your life.
Researchers say standing up after eating is better but if someone walks for 2 minutes lightly, it becomes more productive.
Complex diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol, heart disease, stroke can be easily controlled through this practice. Not only this, this practice is particularly effective in developing well-formed bones and brain.
If you suffer from a complex disease like depression or dementia, you can start this habit today without delay. Experts believe that this practice can reduce the risk of death or any disease by a third.
