- Study says brisk walk could lead to a longer life compared to walking in a slower pace
- Women who walk more quickly has a life span of about 87 years while women who walk slowly has 72 years
- Men who walk quickly can have up to 86 years of life span
We are always told to take things slow in almost all aspects of life.
We are told to take our meal slowly even when we’re already running late for school or for work. We are told to take our relationship with someone slow, so we could not make decisions that we would only regret. In life, we are also told to take things slow, one goal at a time.
Through participant’s self-reported pace, the researchers monitored them within a decade from 2006 to 2016. It was revealed that participants who do brisk walking had longer lif
e expectancies while participants with slower pace had shorter lif e expectancies.
Researchers underscored that physical function is a “stronger determinant” of long
evity than body mass index. The research also showed that women who walked more quickly had a lif e span of about 87 years while women who walked slowly had 72 years.
