playlist for walking


Whether you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes or not, exercise is helpful to maintain a healthy life. Walking is one form of exercise that can help get your blood moving, burn calories and help cardiovascular health. According to the American Diabetes Association, walking can improve health and reduce health care costs, especially if you’ve been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

And when it comes to walking, the right music can make or break your exercise routine.

Whether you like to walk to acoustic or top hits, everyone likes something different but the one commonality is that music can help keep you motivated. Some studies suggest that the tempo of the music can help increase your walking pace, which can increase heart rate.

From lyrics to beats, we put together a walking playlist (with the theme of walking) to help put a little pep in your step.
