Support your mental health by walking more

World Mental Health Day is coming up on October 10th this year and gitamini is here to help you put yourself first. gitamini, the cargo-carrying, following robot makes it easier to walk further and more often rather than driving, which is not only more sustainable but is also great for your mental health. Walking offers physical benefits of exercise while also boosting emotional well-being and easing symptoms related to anxiety and depression. 

How does walking improve mental health? 

Walking increases blood flow and circulation to the brain and body and has a positive influence on your central nervous system which is responsible for your stress response. When you walk, you calm your nerves which can make you feel less stressed. In addition, positive social interactions can also help improve negative moods and walking allows for more opportunity for social interaction rather than driving.

Challenge yourself with gitamini

Did you know that about one third of all car trips in the U.S. are less than two miles? With gitamini, you’re no longer limited by what you can carry, allowing you to walk further and more often. gitamini can carry up to 20 pounds of your gear and can follow you for up to 21 miles on a single charge. In honor of Mental Health Day, challenge yourself to walk 2-3 times per week for those quick trips that you’d typically drive for such as grocery trips, a trip to a friend's house, or if you have a quick commute to work. Your body and mind will thank you! 

Get out and get moving with gitamini this Mental Health Day and beyond!
