An evening walk is the perfect way to end a busy working day, as it is an outdoors workout, which provides an opportunity to improve health and fitness.
It allows you to work your muscles that you do not use much during the day. This can help in relieving stiffness and lower back pain and in relaxing your body and mind.
All this makes you sleep better as you will feel relaxed and free of any stress or tension.
