Let's Get Out and Walk!


The first Wednesday in April is National Walking Day and it encourages Americans of all ages to get out, stretch their legs and get their hearts pumping. The American Heart Association sponsors this day to remind people about the health benefits of taking a walk and with the current Stay Home, Stay Healthy, Stay Connected orders, taking a walk outdoors, in your neighborhood could be exactly what your mind and your body need. So put on your sneakers and at some point in the day today, take a 30-minute walk. 

Here are some great ways to make that 30-minutes more enjoyable:
  • Wear comfortable clothes.
  • Put on some jams, listen to an audio book, podcast or youtube video
  • Take a family member that you live with,with you and talk to each other (like in the olden days).
  • Make sure to stretch those muscles.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Move your arms, too.
  • Make sure you have good posture.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalWalkingDay

Take thirty minutes out of your day to go for a walk. Find a trail near you or walk around your neighborhood. You can also visit a local park (while practicing social distancing) or walk on your treadmill. Take your canine pals with you, too. They need the cardiovascular workout, too! When the family has finished your walk around the block or park, complete this fun word search puzzle below.

Do you need some visual inspiration while walking on the treadmill? Take this walk along the beach.
