20 minutes of fresh air per day. Good for the body, mind and soul!

Every day this week, let’s get outside for AT LEAST 20 MINUTES EVERY DAY to load up on some fresh air and enjoy the outdoors! Let’s slip on those boots and go for a 20-minute walk, snowshoe…

Walking is so good for you; mind, body, and spirit! It’s a great way to boost your mood, get in some active recovery (if you’ve been training hard), it reduces stress, and can help lower your blood pressure. Plus, if you turn up the speed a bit or hit the hills, it can be a wonderful cardio workout.

Not only that, it has some surprising other benefits, like helping to prevent weight gain and battling breast cancer. Anyone else really like those benefits?

Here is a Special Health Report from Harvard Medical School. About the benefits of walking. A short, but a worthwhile read!

All of those are great but one of the greatest benefits of all- is that it gives you a chance to clear your head and get away from technology for a little while. You can reconnect with nature and even with yourself.  It’s refreshing and rejuvenating… and that’s why we’re going to be doing it for at LEAST 20 minutes every day this week!

Plus, going for a walk can be a fun way to catch up with your significant others, busy friends, and your dogs will love it too!

Are you in for this challenge? Where’s your favorite place to go for a walk?  I always love to find new, great locations to explore and enjoy!
