5) It enables you sleep
Poor sleep leads to poor health. Whilst falling asleep is easy for some individuals, approximately 10% of us have experienced chronic insomnia at some point. A post meal stroll will not only help to keep blood sugar levels under control, but it creates the hormone melatonin that helps you fall asleep. Studies show that a walk will benefit your sleep as long as it is three hours before you go to bed, so give it a go next time you are struggling to doze off.
