National Walk at Lunch Day



National Walk at Lunch Day

National Walk at Lunch DayWednesday, April 30, be sure to pack comfortable walking shoes for work- and maybe skip the suit. Blue Cross and Blue Shield has announced its annual National Walk @ Lunch Day event- encouraging people across the country to leave their cubes, desks and drawn-out meetings that leave you sitting and stationary for hours on end, to enjoy a walk with co-workers.

“Physical activity is vital to the well-being of all Americans. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that just 30 minutes of moderate physical activity, such as a moderate walk, at least five times a week can result in significant health benefits, such as lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes and improving the health of muscles, bones, and joints.” - From the BCBS site

Find out if your employer is sponsoring this event- and if not, grab your favorite co-workers for a walk and enjoy the fresh Spring weather outside.
