Take a walk

You can say there’s not much time in your day for the gym. You can say it’s tough to eat right. But often, there is not much of an excuse for taking a little walk.

Studies show that just 30 minutes of walking a day, five days a week, can have medical benefits we’d be crazy not to take advantage of!

Just 30 minutes a day can reduce your risk of heart disease by about 19%. It can boost your energy, improve your mood and potentially extend your life.

Even if you break your walks up into three mini 10-minute walks, you’ll be reaping the benefits.

This week, pick two days to walk for 30 minutes. Try it out.

Walk around your neighborhood, walk around your office.

No matter where you walk, you’ll be doing yourself a favor.
