Today is National Walk at Lunch Day

April 28, 2010

National Walk@Lunch DayI just learned via Twitter (via @GOTRNashville, who retweeted @GOTRI, don’t you love social media chains!) that today is National Walk at Lunch Day.  I’m including some information below so you can learn about this initiative to get America moving.  If you’re like me and didn’t know anything about this until today, I’m sure the walking gods won’t be mad if you bring your walking shoes to work tomorrow to make up for this oversight.  Get up and get moving!

From the National Walk@Lunch Day site:

Walking is fun and easy. And it’s good for your health.  Did you know that by fitting a brisk walk into your day on a regular basis, you can:

  • decrease your risk of a heart attack and type-2 diabetes?
  • control your weight?
  • improve your muscle tone?
  • reduce your stress.

National Walk@LunchDay helps you incorporate physical activity into your work day and encourages you to increase your daily physical activity by walking at lunch every day. So take the first step toward a healthier you.
