Walking is a panacea, a remedy for almost all your woes!?

Walking is like a universal panacea. It has so many health benefits, physical, mental and spiritual. It supports sexual health, including being a great remedy for erectile dysfunction. It helps de-escalate anger and agitated emotions. It connects us to Nature, soothing our soul.
