Active physical activity also plays an important role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. According to the World Health Organization, a healthy lifestyle can prevent 80% of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and 40% of cancer. Walking is the most natural physical process for the body. However, most people try to walk as little as possible.
