Improve your health one step at a time

improve your health one step at a timeWalking helps you stay fit and healthy. Being active even lowers your risk for
serious health problems, like heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes, depression and some cancers.

Yet more than half of adults in the U.S. don’t get enough physical activity.

What is enough? Adults need at least 2.5 hours – and children about an hour – of “moderately intense” aerobic activity each week for better health. This can include walking briskly, dancing, gardening and biking.

A good test to see if your workout is making an impact is whether you can talk, but not sing, as you’re doing it.
