During peak hours, using the lift in many Residensi Wilayah condominiums or apartments may not be a pleasant experience. According to NST , Malaysia also has the highest diabetes prevalence in Southeast Asia. Walking the stairs may sound like a tiring thing to do but looking at the current health problems we Malaysian face; it’s really not a bad idea.
Walking the stairs can be a great way for people with diabetes or pre diabetic to get some physical activity and improve their overall health. There are several benefits to walking the stairs for people with diabetes:
- Improves cardiovascular health: Walking the stairs can help improve cardiovascular health by increasing heart rate and strengthening the heart muscles. This can be especially beneficial for people with diabetes, as they are at a higher risk of heart disease.
- Increases insulin sensitivity: Regular physical activity, such as walking the stairs, can increase insulin sensitivity, which helps the body use insulin more effectively. This can help lower blood sugar levels and improve overall blood sugar control for people with diabetes.
- Helps with weight management: Walking the stairs can help people with diabetes burn calories and maintain a healthy weight, which can help improve blood sugar control and reduce the risk of other health conditions.
- Reduces stress: Physical activity, such as walking the stairs, can help reduce stress and improve mental health. This can be especially beneficial for people with diabetes, as stress can affect blood sugar levels and overall health.
Taking the stairs only 3 times a week is something achievable and truly beneficial and the cost of living is rising higher in the coming days, consider researching about intermittent fasting too as you will spend less and be healthier too! With a positive mindset, a Residensi Wilayah condominium maybe the best purchase of your lifetime.
