We are sleeping 1 1/2 hours less than we did 50 years ago. There is a huge percentage of people in India who either keep waking up at night or claim to have problems sleeping. A large number of people are unhappy with the way this affects their daily life.
People who lack sleep are almost always suffering some form of distress In the short term, you can experience drops in concentration, lapses in memory, slower reactions and increased drowsiness. This final point is one of the risk factors that can result in occupational accidents and is the primary cause of road accidents in particular.
In the long term, there are real consequences for your health: cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, irritability, headaches, depression,problems keeping up at school and at work for working-age adults.
Like any physical activity that is practised for more than 30 minutes, Nordic walking stimulates the secretion of hormones (endorphins, dopamine, serotonin, etc.)
So? These hormones also affect morale, stress, anxiety and pleasure! Step by step, they procure a sense of well-being, and your sleep improves allowing your body to recover from its daily fatigue and preserve all of its energy.
Walking regularly helps to get your body clock working properly again. If you don't want to start Nordic walking, simply walking for 30 minutes a day will already have a noticeable effect on the quality of your sleep and prevent certain diseases.
Nordic Walking exercises all the muscle chains and has a direct effect on your breathing.
The posture associated with using poles (arm movements, straight upper body, head up high) is very good at opening up the rib cage.
You breathe more deeply and consume more oxygen than when walking normally (+60% on average). It doesn't stop there! When practised outdoors, nature offers you a peaceful environment and you can tap into the benefits of the natural light (and sometimes even the sunshine for those who are more fortunate).
This is great for sleeping well and getting rid of any stress!
