Walk to Work!

Today is National Walk to Work Day. As the number of employee wellness programs continue to soar in the US business world, this holiday seems the perfect fit! According to an article updated on 6/7/14, on About.com, “If your commute is too long, [as many of ours here in Metro-Atlanta are] make it a Walk to Lunch Day. Invite your co-workers to join with you for Walk to Work Day, or join you in a Walk to Lunch.”

Did you know….“Walking for 30-60 minutes a day greatly reduces your risk of dying from heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes” By finding a way to make walking part of each day, you are giving yourself proven health benefits far beyond any promised by herbs, vitamins, or prescription drugs. Walking for 30 minutes a day as part of your work commute or lunch puts you into the “Moderate Physical Activity” category and greatly lowers your health risks.”
