In the US, the first Friday in April is National Walk to Work Day, a day where everyone is encouraged to walk for all or part of your commute to work. Why Walk? According to this WebMD article, Walking For Wellness, there are several reasons why:
Walking is one of the easiest ways to get the exercise you need to stay healthy.
Walking and other aerobic exercise also can improve your mood and energy.
Walking also keeps your bones healthy. It is a weight-bearing activity, which means that it works the muscles and bones against gravity.
Do you take public transportation? Why not walk to a further stop before boarding, or getting off a stop early and walking the rest of the distance to work?
If your commute is too long, make it a Walk to Lunch Day. Invite your co-workers to join with you for Walk to Work Day, or join you in a Walk to Lunch.
Do you plan on participating in Walk to Work Day? Do you think this is a good way to encourage more people to exercise? If not, what would you do?
Now that the weather is getting warmer, I'm more motivated to get off a stop or two early and walk a bit farther on my way to work. I can't wait to enjoy early morning walks with pleasant weather!
