Celebrate National Walking Day

National Walking Day is Wednesday, April 2nd!  Celebrate the day by getting outside and get the family moving.  Physical activity can sometimes be hard to fit in with busy schedules, but it is very important for your health and well-being.  Taking 30 minutes a day to walk can help to:
  • maintain a healthy weight
  • get your heart pumping
  • help clear your mind
Walking is a great activity that the whole family can enjoy!  Taking a walk around the neighborhood gives your a chance to talk about your day with your family, enjoy the scenery, and get some fresh air.  If the weather is bad, walking inside counts too.  Take a walk around the local mall or department store. Try taking 2-3 laps around the store to get in physical activity.  Make a goal to work 3-4 times a week.

How will you celebrate National Walking Day?
