National Walking Day - April 1st

From the Desk of St Benedict's Nurse

Lace up your sneakers! Celebrate National Walking Day on April 1st. Take a walk and, most importantly, make a commitment to be physically active on a regular basis. 

A brisk walk for 30 to 60 minutes per day is recommended for health and weight management.

Walking benefits your brain power, improves your mood and help ward off depression, and allows you to connect more deeply with your spiritual side and with your loved ones.
