Luckily, you don’t have to do much to gain the benefits of gentle exercise—just 30 minutes a day is beneficial to your health. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits you’ll enjoy by fitting a half hour of walking in per day, whether you take a break during the workday, enjoy a pre-dinner stroll, or set out first thing in the morning.

This wheelchair even remembers a shopper’s favorite / regular products, suggesting and navigating to those items automatically.
