According to a study, walking is actually a good therapy for the treatment of depression. It takes a person away from what he or she is going through and provides space. It creates more chance of self-awareness.

Moreover, it does not only help in the treatment of depression but as well as in preventing depression to get in the way of a person.

Aside from that benefit, taking a good walk for 30 minutes also helps in reducing the chances of dementia. How is that possible? A half-an-hour walk can reduce the risk of brain tissue loss and it can help preserve the memory of a person.
