Try This: Walk Further for Lunch
Adding more movement into your day is a great way to start getting healthy. This week’s tip: Go to a restaurant two blocks further away for lunch. Instead of just popping to the closest sandwich shop, try walking to a place a bit further away. Two blocks each way equates to adding almost half a kilometer of walking to your day, which could have a significant impact on your health. According to The National Center for Biotechnology Information, men who walk 5 city blocks in a day lower their risk of heart attack by 25%. Bonus – you might just find that awesome new sandwich place that gets you the office nickname Hero. Every week we’ll bring you a ‘Try This’ tip – something small that you can do to add a bit more movement into your daily routine. Your body will thank you.
