Walk for Wellness
Walking provides incredible health benefits like feel-good endorphins to reduce depression, stress, and anxiety. Going for a stroll with a friend or a group helps set aside feelings of isolation and loneliness.
Walking boosts circulation and helps lower blood pressure and the risk of heart disease. It loosens stiff joints, eases muscle tension, tones the body, and keeps weight in check.
Any physical exercise helps our mental health. It can be as simple as walking around the block!
