    Your Comments Hi Elle,
    Thank you. I states in article that 30 min regularly..it means “daily walk” not just few times in a week.

    All forms of exercise are great, but I think walking is such a accessible, affordable, and effective form of exercising. I think it’s especially wonderful for the older generation. My mom has knee joint problems and can’t run or jog, so walking is a great alternative.

    Your article states that a 30 minute regular walk can extend your life by 1.3 years. Do you know if “regular” is referring to a daily walk or perhaps just a few times a week?
