Today's Challenge - Go on a walk

Walk

There are so many great health benefits when we exercise, and even a short, brisk walk can provide some pretty amazing ones. First, walking can significantly boost your mood, especially if you choose to hit the pavement and get outside vs. walking indoors on a treadmill. Walking also helps strengthen your heart, tap into your creativity and tone and strengthen your muscles. Several studies also show a decreased risk for disease and dementia. Even better, if you go on a walk with a friend or your partner, studies have found it can help you feel more connected. 

Personally, the benefit I enjoy the most is the profound impact it has on my mood when I go for a mid-day walk. It's a nice pause to an otherwise sometimes hectic day. I always come back feeling rejuvenated and ready to tackle the rest of my daily tasks. And despite how great I know it makes me feel, there are still days that I don't make it a priority. 

So, today's challenge is to get outside and go for a walk. You can choose whether you want to walk for 10 minutes or an hour. Just get outside and do it!
