Walking Is Awesome May 18 2015

Walk For Life!

Did you know the steps you take from your bed to your shower... from your front door to your car... from your desk to and from the printer... all add up to exercise?

Walking for as little as a cumulative 30 minutes a day can reap benefits that enhance a lifetime:

* Lowers your blood pressure, cholesterol, and risk of type 2 diabetes

* Increases your metabolism, flexibility and functionality

* Strengthens your bone density and your heart

* Brightens your mood and lifts your spirits

So, next time you're trying to FIT in fitness, take the stairs in your office building, take a stroll at lunch, or take the puppy out for a longer-than-normal walk - your body and mind will be glad you did!
