7)      It improves your memory

As well as being a natural mood booster, going for a walk is great for getting out of a cognitive haze and working your brains memory function. Whilst being a mild workout to clear your mind in the morning, studies have shown that walking appears to boost the size of the hippocampus- the part of the brain that promotes learning new information and verbal memory. Also, as you remember new walking routes, you are forced to concentrate on where you are heading which will improve your memory.
