5 Reasons to Go for a Walk After Eating
If you can find the time, try to make a habit of walking after you eat. It doesn’t have to be more than 15 minutes, which is easily achievable even during a workday lunch break. While walking for such a short duration won’t burn off a sizeable amount of calories, the health benefits abound.

It helps accelerate the rate of digestion
In people with high blood sugar levels (diabetes, pre-diabetes), walking for 20 minutes after a meal helps take the edge off the blood sugar spike

Walking helps to clear the mind, and improves mood.
Important note: You need to walk after eating, not while you are eating.
