Similarly, stress management is essential. Just by walking for some time every day, you can keep diseases like high blood pressure, heart attack, diabetes away. A study was recently conducted on the prevalence of heart disease in middle-aged people. It has been shown that if a person above 60 years of age walks 6000 to 9000 steps daily, the risk of heart disease is reduced by 50 percent. Let’s know about this research in detail.

In a research conducted at the University of Massachusetts in the United States, it has been shown that if a person over 60 years of age walks 6000 to 9000 steps every day, the risk of heart disease is reduced by 50 percent. Dr. Prof. Amanda Paluch and PhD student Shivangi Vajpayee of this university have done this research. During the research, the researchers studied the data of more than 20 thousand people in 42 countries, including the United States. Researchers found that people who walked 6,000 to 9,000 steps per day had a 40 to 50 percent lower risk of heart disease, including heart attack and stroke, than those who walked 2,000.

According to Aaj Tak’s report, Dr. Amanda Paluch said, “Our research shows that walking 6,000 to 9,000 steps a day is more beneficial for middle-aged people than for young people. Heart related diseases are common in old age. Often these diseases do not develop until we are very old. Heart failure, heart attack or stroke are less likely to occur at a young age. Young people who are physically active have a lower risk of high blood pressure, obesity, type-2 diabetes and heart disease later in life.

“Physical activity among Indians decreases after retirement from work due to cultural and social reasons. Most working people in India walk to office. But after retirement they prefer to stay at home. So their movements are less. Most Indians become somewhat socially isolated after retirement. Having no purpose in life, their physical and mental health deteriorates. So it is necessary to keep such people active or to keep them working,” said Shivangi Vaipeyi.

“There is a lack of awareness about guidelines for physical activity. Therefore, to encourage physical activity in India, counting the number of steps we take every day can be useful, said Vajpayee.

Although times are changing, in most Indian families, women are responsible for the household. Therefore women neglect their health. There is a common misconception that women don’t need any form of exercise independently because they work so hard doing housework. Regular walking is beneficial for the health of women doing housework. Keeping track of how much you walk every day can be beneficial for your health.

“Those who have any kind of heart related complaint should first set a small walking goal for themselves and gradually increase the walking time so that their heart becomes stronger and disease free,” said Vajpayee.
