Know the Benefits
Physical activity doesn’t need to be complicated. Something as simple as a daily brisk walk can help you live a healthier life. For example, regular brisk walking can help you:

  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Prevent or manage various conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes
  • Strengthen your bones and muscles
  • Improve your mood
  • Improve your balance and coordination
 The faster, farther and more frequently you walk, the greater the benefits. …..AND, says your friendly Back Creek Conservancy volunteer, a good long walk is better when there’s live music, a food truck, and beer at the end, RIGHT??
