FOR THE
MIND, BODY, AND HEART
"Walk to be healthy, walk to be Happy." - Charles Dickens

Our walks are typically 30 minutes or more because walking 30 minutes a day improves mental and physical well-being:

  • 58% reduced risk of developing diabetes
  • 27% reduced risk of stroke
  • 35% reduced risk of heart attack
  • 40% reduced risk of colon cancer
  • 50% reduced risk of mortality
    (when combined with weekly vigorous exercise)

Walking not only prevents disease, but it boosts one's concentration and memory, endorphine levels (for a better mood), and vitamin D levels (for healtheir bones and immune system). Walking is also very low risk with less than 5% cance of injury.
