Staying Active

  1. "Each stride you take gets you a little closer to some awesome health benefits." Prevention, October, 2014

    There are 2000 steps in a mile for the average person.  If you walk less than 5000 steps in a day, you are considered sedentary.  Women who walk at least 7,500 steps a day have 50% lower incidence of depression.  6,000 steps help ease and prevent knee pain in osteoarthritis sufferers.  10,000 steps a day is associated with lower blood pressure and reduced chance of diabetes.  Lots of reason to keep on walking.
