National Walking Day

With all today's craziness with Hover boards and the over abundance of cab services, it can be easy to forget the importance of simply getting up and walking. Well today is National Walking Day and the American Heart Association is encouraging people to lace up their sneakers and take 30 minutes out of their day to get up and walk. 

Exercise can come in various forms, it doesn't have to be at the actual gym! You can make any excuse to burn a few extra calories and better your heart health. If you have some extra time after you get off work, get off at the stop before and walk the remainder of the way. If you live close to work try walking there, a few small alterations to your daily routine and your body and mind will greatly benefit. 

Walking and exercise have various benefits from toning up your body and core, to aiding in fighting dementia as well as fighting depression. You’ll get more done with more energy, and a brisk walk is one of the best natural energizers around. It boosts circulation and increases oxygen supply to every cell in your body, helping you to feel more alert and alive. Try walking on your lunch break to achieve more in the afternoon.
