Do you feel energy-depleted after a long day behind a desk, or in front of a screen?

Most Americans are used to this sedimentary lifestyle, however, sitting too long and not getting enough exercise can increase your risk for heart disease and strokes. To get a boost of energy during you day and lower your risks for these diseases, lace up your sneakers and get outside for a walk.

The American Heart Association’s National Walking Day, on April 1st, encourages Americans to get at least 30 minutes of walking on this day. Of course, getting at least 30 minutes of exercise everyday would be ideal for your physical and mental health.

Luckily, we go to a university that has a beautiful campus that offers a variety of different options for exercising.

Take advantage of the beautiful weather that is to come and get outside for some exercise! Visit The American Heart Association’s website for more information.
