Different Ways of Walking

 




Exercise is necessary to keep your body and mind healthy. Some people enjoy jogging to keep their hearts pumping, while others like lifting weights to build muscles.

However, there is one simple exercise that anyone can do, and that is walking. Recently, two interesting ways of walking – backward and barefoot – have become very popular in Korea.

Walking backward might seem strange and look a little funny, but it can have several health benefits. Walking backward engages different muscles than walking forward. As a result, it can improve balance and coordination.

Reverse walking also requires a lot of focus and concentration. Therefore, this exercise can help to improve your brain function as well as your muscle strength. That said, walking backward can be challenging at first, so you should practice on a treadmill* before trying it outside.

Barefoot walking has also become more common in Korea. In fact, many barefoot trails have been popping up around the country.

Some health professionals believe that walking without shoes and socks can boost the immune system and relieve stress. They also say that it can help strengthen muscles in the feet and improve posture.

Additionally, walking barefoot can help people feel closer to nature because it leads to greater awareness of different terrains. The feeling of the ground beneath your feet can also increase serotonin* levels. At the same time, it is important to watch where you step and avoid hurting your feet.

If you enjoy walking but do not feel ready to try walking backward or barefoot, that is fine. Walking normally has plenty of health benefits, too. So, no matter how you choose to walk, just try adding more movement into your daily life.
