Today (Wednesday, April 3rd) is the American Heart Association’s National Walking Day. We all are aware that physical inactivity significantly increases the risk of heart disease and places us at risk for many other illnesses.  The good news is that walking can significantly reduce risk of many diseases.  Today is the perfect day to get started – partly sunny with a high of 73!

Just a few of these benefits include:

Walking 30 minutes/day just 4 days/week can reduce risk of diabetes by nearly 60%.

Walking 20 minutes/day can burn 7 lbs. of body fat a year.

Walking 30 minutes/day can reduce risk of heart disease by 50% & lower cholesterol.

Walking 30 minutes/day can drop systolic blood pressure by 6 points.

Check out the American Heart Association’s website for more and download a six-week walking schedule!
