National Walking Day is Wednesday, April 5, 2017

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 and use #NationalWalkingDay to post on social media.
