CAN walking give you the same boost that coffee does?
Research conducted at the University of Georgia in Athens discovered that adults who walked at a low to moderate speed for just 10 minutes felt more energized that when they drank 50 mg (equals 1/2 cup of coffee) of caffeine.
Other studies show that walking for more than 20 minutes helped people feel energized.
Evidence suggests that exercise assists changes in brain neurotransmitters, which play a role in energy boosting.
Additional benefits – increased blood circulation, which helps to get more oxygen and nutrients to the brain and muscles, helping you feel more alert. It also improves mood and heart health.
