The first Wednesday in April is National Walking Day.  The American Heart Association sponsors this day to remind people about the health benefits of taking a walk.  Wear your sneakers (or take them with you) to work, and at some point in the day, you are encouraged to take a 30-minute walk. 
Here are some great ways to make that 30-minutes more enjoyable:
  • Wear comfortable clothes.
  • Take a friend to pass the time.
  • Make sure to stretch those muscles.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Move your arms, too.
  • Make sure you have good posture.
Take thirty minutes out of your day to go for a walk.
As part of the American Heart Association’s efforts to promote healthy living, National Walking Day was started in 2007.  For more information visit
