Healthy Monday: Keep Walking!

monday

It’s not news that walking is a great way to include more physical activity into your day while getting a low-impact workout. Research shows that walking for at least 30 minutes a day may improve your cholesterol, lower your blood pressure and blood sugar levels, and help stave off stress. If you have already been able to incorporate more walking into your daily routine – or if you walk the Monday Mile every week – you’re already on a great path to getting more physical activity and fighting the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle. Read more about getting the most out of your walk on the Move It Monday blog.

Join Decatur Active Living for the 50+ Walks every Wednesday. The walks begin and end at the Decatur Recreation Center, are about 2 –  3 miles in length, and begin at 9 am during daylight savings time.
