Mix it up

Mix it up

Mix up your activities with a hike, bike ride or a team sport with your buds.

Running on a treadmill for months on end is boring and going to a gym is not for everybody. Go for a hike or bike ride. Or get some pickup basketball or soccer going with your buds.

Every step counts

Every step counts

Stop sitting – get up and walk!

Another free and easy health habit to pick up – walking! Plain and simple walking makes you healthy. The more you walk the healthier you will become. Walk around while you talk on the phone, park your car or get off the bus a few blocks early and walk, take the stairs and walk your kids to school. Walk on your lunch break at work, walk, walk, walk! Lots of short activity adds up.

Did you know even walking 5 city blocks a day can lower your risk of heart attack by 25%—it’s that simple and easy.
